Raheem Sterling's Boots
Raheem Sterling currently laces the Phantom Venom which is considered to be the power boot of Nike’s existing football boots lineup. He's had a few special boots, with the privilege to wear the Phantom Fire version which Nike has made exclusive for their professional players who have won their respective 2019 domestic league season, joining the ranks of Kevin de Bruyne, Robert Lewandowski, and Thiago Alcântara. On top of that, he has also flashed the Euphoria Gold colourway during their FA Cup Final win last season against Watford in which he capped the emphatic 6-0 scoreline with a pair of goals near the end of the match.
Recent Sterling Boot History:
What's Raheem Wearing?
He has previously employed the services of Nike’s Mercurial Vapor lines, Raheem specifically wearing their Vapors IX through XII. A report published in August 2019 indicated that Sterling was considering a lucrative £100m boot endorsement deal offered by Nike subsidiary Air Jordan. Jordan have already began their movement into football and boots, with the colab with Neymar for the Hypervenom x Jordan boots, the PSG kit including their European edition and special range of Jordan boots, worn by the French club's players.
Initially breaking through prominence with Liverpool, Raheem Sterling is now known as a regular in Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. In just a few years with the club starting with the 2015-2016 season, he has already collected numerous team awards and individual accolades. He is part of the core group of players that won the Premier League back to back, from the record-breaking 2017-2018 season to the nail-biting finish 2018-2019 season and has recently helped Manchester City in winning the 2019 FA Community Shield, beating Liverpool 5-4 in penalties after a 1-1 scoreline. Last season, he was awarded the PFA Young Player of the Year, FWA Footballer of the Year and was also named to the PFA Premier League Team of the Year.
Usually playing as a left-winger on a front led by Kun Aguero, Sterling can both assist and score. His small stature, while providing him with a low centre of gravity that assists his technical abilities, completely hides the unreal upper body strength that enables him to withstand challenges. Coupled with excellent dribbling, he can penetrate defences and take advantage of the tightest of spaces.
In the same manner that Carles Puyol has a commanding presence in defence despite lacking height, Sterling’s attacking prowess, despite his frame, is nothing short of powerful, making him a big name for Nike and their Phantom Venom boots.
