Harry Kane's Boots
Harry Kane currently wears the Phantom Venom which is the power boot among the four Nike silos. The Phantom Venom assists Kane by providing a comfortable sock-like sensation through its very thin, multi-textured, and multilayered Flyknit upper. The VNM has a soft honeycomb toe box that has a waxy matte texture for added ball grip and positions thirteen slightly raised ridges, increasing in length from top to bottom, on the top of the instep to give more power and precision to strikes. An elastic cover on the bottom half of the laces, make the striking surface larger and the Hyperreactive outsole is made of nylon with chevron studs on the outer part, providing both stability and traction. The soleplate also has multidirectional Pebax linings for flexibility, allowing Kane to be more agile when going to spaces.

What's Kane Wearing?
Harry Kane has come a long way to become one of the greatest English strikers of his generation. While his desire for self-improvement was noticeable, his football career during his younger days saw him getting released and/or rejected by various youth academies due to lack of athleticism. It took him two attempts to be able to join Tottenham which remains to be his team up to the present moment. As he was lagging in pace and height during his youth, he initially performed a holding midfielder role. He then slowly transitioned to a more attacking role and ultimately to the striker position as he developed both his physical and athletic attributes. He ultimately impressed in the 2014-2015 season which saw him awarded as the PFA Young Player of the Year. His accomplishments spilt to both 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 seasons, winning the Premier League Golden Boot award in both instances. He also has a Golden Boot award for the 2018 FIFA World Cup which made him the first English top scorer since Gary Lineker in 1986. He recently led Tottenham Hotspur to a runner up finish in the 2018-2019 Champions League.
Kane is much admired for his goal-scoring threat from both feet and his aerial ability. However, his goal-scoring opportunities also stem from the fact that he can move into the tightest of spaces and make the most of it. He is also able to do link up plays in deep aside from his hold up play up front. At both Tottenham and England, he is the first choice striker, a great indicator of how well his finishing rate is.
On the 4th of February 2018, Nike has released the Special Edition Hypervenom 3 HK to celebrate the striker’s 100th Premier League goal. The Hypervenom 3 HK features a white and blue upper with Gold swooshes but most importantly, it has a gold ‘100’ branding on the heel and also a gold ‘Keep it Kane’ wording at the insole. In the same year on September 7, Nike has acknowledged Kane’s Golden Boot award for the 2018 world cup by featuring an all gold Hypervenom 3 with the English logo appearing on the side right below the collar.
