Alex Morgan is a pillar of US women’s soccer, and USWNT’s SheBelieves Cup opener against Canada represented a milestone for her career. It’s a fact not lost to the player dubbed as ‘Baby Horse’ due to her long stride. She surely commemorated the occasion by rocking a pair of Nike Phantom GT customised through the NikeID service. It’s worth noting that US women’s number 13 opted for the discontinued phantom model and not the present Phantom GX for the Nike By You service.
The personalised Morgan GTs fires up a predominantly scarlet red colourway, balanced out by the bespoke brandings and Flyknit tongue in white. A big ‘200’ flashes around the quarter to celebrate the striker’s number of US caps reached for the abovementioned match. The graphic is clearly inspired by the star and stripes of the American flag. The national colours are completed by the blue outline on the Swoosh and the tips of the red laces. As for the Hyperquick soleplate, a glossy grey shade marks its finish.
For the final touches, Alex changes the PHANTOM GT branding to ‘MORGANGT,’ and also adds ‘CHARLIE♥‘ signifying that Morgan dedicates her national team achievement to her daughter. Here she is playing her 200th with USWNT wearing her very own Phantom GT boots:
