Nike Hypervenom Phantom II
The Hypervenom Phantom II is stunning. It combines ‘green glow’ color with silver and black decals. We love the bold Nike swoosh on forefoot area of the football boot. The outsole features a dual tone graphic design that combines ‘green glow’ and black colors.
Hypervenom Phantom II features Nike’s revolutionary Dynamic Fit Collar along with ACC (All conditions control). NikeSkin on the upper ensures ultimate ball control. While the Pebax soleplate offers unparalleled traction.

Much like Nike’s Hypervenom Phantom II, Nike’s Magista is eye-catching. ‘Hyper Grape’ covers most of the upper. The honeycomb structure of ‘green glow’ and ‘hyper grape’ cover the forefoot area. Nike makes a bold statement with the silver swoosh on the side of the football boot. A combination of ‘green glow’ and ‘hyper grape’ cover the outsole too.
Nike Magista Obra features Dynamic Fit Collar that offers additional stability. The 3D structure combined with Flyknit upper offer supreme ball control and unparalleled first-touch. Conical stud pattern on the outsole delivers rotational agility.
