Caitlin Foord’s new striking partner

-

The Matildas and Sydney FC dynamo has a new striking partner which she says is helping her shooting precision.

Meet the PhantomVNM, the perfect football boot for finishers with its textured zones to facilitate a powerful strike and a Precision Pwr strike zone for spot on accuracy.

The boot will be worn by Matildas’ star Caitlin Foord, English captain Harry Kane and American World Cup Champion Alex Morgan.

The boot’s design helps keep the ball down if it is mishit and provides the perfect touch on the ball.

“When I’m shooting, I always favour precision over power. Different situations demand different finishes but I always aim for placement first,” says Caitlin Foord.

To create the PhantomVNM, designers teamed up with Nike’s research lab and utilised a robotic leg to test strikes from a variety of angles on the blades of the shoe. This enabled Nike to analyse the impact that the various blade iterations had on accuracy, elevation, power and spin.

That style of finishing is why the design of the PhantomVNM features a series of textured zones to facilitate a powerful strike, but with an understanding that all of the power in the world won’t score without the accuracy to keep the shot on goal. This emphasis is most evident in the instep’s Precision Pwr strike zone.

Much like the PhantomVSN, the PhantomVNM increases the strike zone area by covering the laces. The boot builds off the Hyper-Reactive plate found in the Hypervenom3 and is flexible in the forefoot for toeing off the ground with torque for sharp cuts.

The PhantomVNM launched last week on nike.com.au. A small-sided version, featuring Zoom Air cushioning, will also be available.
