Nike Football have launched the PhantomVSN, a new boot designed for deadly precision and set to be worn by a host of the world’s top players, including Philippe Coutinho, Kevin De Bruyne, Fran Kirby, Mallory Pugh, and Leon Goretzka. Conceived from the inside out, PhantomVSN features key new performance enhancing innovations such as Quadfit, Ghost Laces and a texturized Flyknit Upper.
To celebrate the launch of the new boot, Nike have identified young players across London, known as ‘Phantom Plugz’ who embody the “Phantom Style” on and off the pitch and who are very active in the football scene in their borough, including coaching other young people. Across the last week, Nike held exclusive trials of the boot across the different boroughs. This saw young players from across London face off against each other to qualify for a place in one of the Phantom Plugz’ teams for the final in Peckham.
