After a new Nike boot launch, always doth new colourways for all their other boots follow. So it is written (somewhere), so it shall be done.
So, with the new Tiempo providing a timely and bright reminder of just how many players actually wear them, the Hypervenom Phantom is the latest Nike boot to get a new look in the form of the Nike Hypervenom Phantom – Neo Lime colourway.
After a green secondary launch colourway that is still proving popular with top players almost six months later, Nike are quick to revisit the hue in this Neo Lime / Black incarnation.
With two shades in play breaking up the upper in the same way as other colourways, Nike have added solid black branding and laces for a satisfying block colour effect.
As with all Nike boots this Winter, the silver tongue carries onto the Hypervenoms after the Tiempo starting the trend.
If anyone is wondering how the Hypervenom Phantom performs, it really is one of the best to wear out of all the boots on the market.
The NikeSkin upper not only looks great, but is wonderfully pliable and offers superb feel for the ball.
The conical soleplate is flexible in all the right places, with the split toe providing a little more give than other boots in that area, offering a sense of firm push-off and forgiving adjustments for sharp twists and turns.
Neymar has been in sensational form this week, debuting the boots with a goal in a 3-0 Barcelona win. Expect the likes of Rooney, Isco, Higuain and more to join the Brasilian forward in the Nike Hypervenom Phantom – Neo Lime' this weekend, with a retail launch expected this week.
