"I work at a soccer store and have worn the Phantom around for a while. In store the fit was amazing and I loved it, and i finally bought a pair of the black ones and loved everything about them, the look, the feel, the touch. I had worn them in a few practices by myself and was impressed with the touch and how nice the stud pattern was. However in my first actual training session, I felt some hot spots and at the end had the worst blisters of my life on my heel and had a cut on my pinky toe. I've played competitive soccer for 10 years and have never had blisters this bad. I love the shoe by all means, however this made it so I was out for a week and a half trying to recover, and that has impeded my training. I tried breaking the boot in slowly with walking around in my house then some jogging sessions etc. However it didn't work and I generally don't get blisters. Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic boot, but be cautious when breaking them in."

"My season is about to start for high school and the new boots I got were outstanding. I've only had them for a while now but the tongue started separating. So I played on and later on in the week I got stepped on and it just ripped the tongue from its binding. I don't know what to do now since the season is starting up soon. So I just glued it on and ill see how it works. still a very good boot though. Just upset this happened."

"So I've been wearing Nike shoes since I was in college about 9 years ago. I've been through so many pairs that I love I can't even properly put it in to words.
The Hypervenoms however, are by far THE WORST Nike product I've ever had or used. They feel great, the fit great, but they disintegrate after about 5-6 uses. I already had one pair that I sent back in to soccer.com after having the toe wear through after 3 wears, now my second pair the tongue stitching is coming off after about 5 or 6 wears. Bottom line, DO NOT BUY THESE.
I know some Nike rep is going to come on here and apologize and tell me to try and return them "to my retailer" again, and then try Nike, but I'm done with that shipping back and forth BS. I don't want to send these back in, I just want everyone else to know they should not buy these. Not worth the price, not worth the hassle, just flat out a garbage Nike product. You can see it by all the other bad reviews on here. Take my word for it and stay away."

"I just like that that its a one piece upper that is thin and comfortable. The touch is soft like leather, but might even form to your foot better and plus you will not have to worry about them drying out and cracking. There are no silly shooting or control elements that add bulk to the shoe. Ive worn the cleats in rain a few times now and have had them for like a month and they seem to be holding up fine, better than I expected really after seeing reviews about durability issues. I have not worn them on turf, so Im expecting that is the root of some peoples problems with the shoe. I'd recommend ordering a half size down bc they do stretch quite a bit, but the snug feel is excellent. I've owned several pairs of vapors, including the vapor x, and I actually think these are a bit comfier and overall better, besides durability possibly, but I like the vapors traction pattern for firm ground better, but only slightly more. Basically, a good analogy is you'd want the vapors for a drag race(speed) and the hypervenoms for a tight cornered winding road race (agility). Overall, its one of the best cleats Ive ever worn. At first I hated them and thought Id never try or wear them, but I got some in exchange for my premiers that had ripped, and I actually prefer these, even though I usually wear leather boots or vapors. Hypervenoms, are phenomenal when it comes to performance, and not to mention, very good looking. Slick boots Nike, love them. Don't know how you will beat these with the second generation."

"I play midfield and forward, back and forth, and this boot is excellant for both positions. My touches on the ball are exceptional, and the power i can get in my shots and crosses are great. I have played in rain storms with these cleats and the Nikeskin has kept my feet completely dry. All together, this is a great pair of cleats."

"I had these cleats for 2 months when the plate started separating from the nike skin but I didn't think much of it and slowly but surely it came off and now half the carbon fiber plate is hanging off. But I'm not going to lie they feel amazing so I just kept super glue it back on"

"Elles sont très confortables, et sont assez larges, pour accueillir mes "gros" pieds !
Elles sont relativement petites, mais comme l'empeigne des Hypervenom est souple; alors ça lâche au bout d'un moment...
Au début, elle sont serrées, mais il faut les élargir (moi j'ai mi une balle de Tennis dans chaque côté, et j'ai laissé comme ça pendant une nuit entière. Le lendemain, elles étaient parfaites !)

"This boot is durable and the nikeskin upper stretches for people with wider feet. The Nike hypervenom phantom is good for controlling the ball in tight spaces. Over all this is a wonderful boot. I would recommend this to anyone who is an attacking player that scores lots of goals"

"I used to have mercurials and they were a good shoe, but i wanted something a little bit different. As an attacking midfielder/center forward in needed a shoe to aid me in dribbling and scoring. i definently got it in these boots. i wore them straight out of the box into a game and managed two goals and an excellent performance in my first game with them. i can dribble past my opponents with ease and my shot was a lot more venemous. These are definently next level boots and i highly reccomend them if you want to take your game to the next level. Thanks nike!"

"This boot is truly amazing. The nike skin is amazing and it almost disappears on your foot. Don't worry if u have kinda wide feet the nike skin stretches perfectly to fit your foot gotta say its amazing. Just a little concern the adhesive wears away if you don't stick to the stud pattern u choose like SG or FG or AG. Overall great product"

"this cleat is the best one I've had but the lining/padding under the tongue is coming apart. other than that there very very lite and the ball stays very close to your foot and i like how the there is a off center lacing system. hopefully they come out with a hypervenom 2 but no ankle and i rated it 4 stars because of the tongue problem"

"I bought the cleat with my own money and saved up for months. The cleats felt great. They were light and had a clean touch and pass. After 1 month, the cleats ripped on the tongue, the bond between the sole and the Nike-Skin, the inside seams, and the tags on the inside. I tried returning the cleats to Nike, but they wouldn't take them back because the information tags on the inside ripped. Nike won't accept a return, for the inside information tags have torn off. I still have the original box, receipt, and bag it came with. I am beginning to distrust Nike."
