And The Gold Goes To...

Providing a metallic makeover on the Liquid Chrome Pack Nike polish up the bronze and place the Hypervenom on the podium with a design that doesn't necessarily sit in third place.

A surprisingly unfamiliar paint job on football footwear the "Metallic Bronze" and black detailing compliment each other well as Nike add a two-toned edge to their latest on-pitch collection. A change in colour direction from the recent Electro Flare Pack but that metallic sparkle is retained for an added dazzle of visibility under the floodlights this winter.

Tech wise the Hypervenom Phantom II stands away from the Superfly IV and Magista Obra as it mixes the FlyKnit collar with an enhanced mesh upper and NikeSkin rather than using FlyKnit throughout the upper and build of the boot. As per usual the Phantom is accompanied by a low-cut Phinish as Nike continue to deliver standard editions of their boots for players who haven't warmed to the Dynamic Fit Collars, and there's a fair few of them.
