Nike Phantom GT Rugby Boots

Tries are important, but to pile up as many points as possible, conversions, penalty kicks, and dropkicks cannot be overlooked and must be assigned to someone that strikes with surgical precision. A player of such calibre needs an equally performing rugby boot and surely, he will find the Nike Phantom GT, a boot made for a player who impacts the game with well-timed kicks on the ball, a perfect match for his ability.

Technologies make sure that both comfort and precision are met when one goes lock and loaded with the Phantom GT. First off, the upper is a one-piece Flyknit upper to give the player a soft and pliable material that gently wraps the top of the foot. The Phantom GT is then attached to a wide last, making the boot roomy and less restrictive. For fans of collared boots, the Phantom GT has a dedicated Dynamic Fit collared version.

The full Flyknit upper then has an ultra-thin silicon layer that is treated with Nike's All Conditions Control coating that allows for more ball grip even in wet conditions. The off-centre lacing increases the striking surface and to maximize the Generative Texture grip elements which serve as the main highlight of the boot. The Generative Texture is the raised texturing shaped into micro pills. Applied by computer science on targeted areas, the Generative Texture is designed to enhance ball grip so you can control it even better.

Both the FG and SG soleplates feature the open-arch structure of the Hyperquick system. The Phantom GT low is available in both SG PRO and SG PRO Anticlog, while the GT DF is solely SG PRO.

Cheaper Academy GT

The affordable way to experience the GT is the Academy mode. The Academy's upper is synthetic leather with a textile material for the tongue (low) or collar (DF). The Generative Texture is toned down with regard to its grippiness. The takedown model is available only with MG and SG PRO Anti Clog soleplates. A special Academy version called Flyease GT introduces a slip-on construction courtesy of a fold-over heel and a heel strap.

The GT also has Jr. options of both the Pro and Academy-those looking for children's boots should look at these below:
