Expert Phantom GT Elite Reviews:

To save you time, we've combined our own personal opinions of the boots, with those of the most trusted voices on Football Boots online. Below you can find video reviews of the Phantom GT Elite FG and their key takeaways, so everything you'd want to know about the boot is here for you!

For those who've been missing the original Hypervenom Phantom 1; these are arguably the best non-mercurial Nike boot since 2013. They feel like a knitted OG Hypervenom with its thin and soft Flyknit upper providing a comfortable barefoot sensation.

Unisport talked about the Phantom GT, they said:

  • Fit is fantastic as the Flyknit upper has some elasticity to follow the contours of your feet,though the upper does not have a structure-supportive technology like Quadfit or Flywire
  • Best for standard to wide fitting; narrow-feet players may have to go down half a size; narrow-feet players might feel a bit of an extra room especially on the medial side
  • Balanced traction and responsive outsole makes the GT more rounded than even the Mercurials
  • Generative Texture is bolder than VSN 2's Hyperscreen technology but second to that of the Predator; touch is enhanced without feeling too grippy and bulky
  • A very special boot that could be a classic five years from now; a very good alternative to the Vapor 13

Jeongwoo Lee, Nike Football Senior Creative Director said:

  • Phantom GT is made for you to unleash your creative skils on the pitch
  • Designed to feel like an extension of your foot
  • Textured to amplify boot to ball feel
  • Generative texture of upper interacts with the hyperquick plate
  • Data driven stud positioning on the sole
  • Designs for you to attack with quick, sharp cuts
