"I've owned 2 pairs if these and there the best boots I've ever had the nike skin is amazing and there very comfy and the traction is great in sg-pro and fg. People say the durability isn't great but for me it's been very good I owned my first pair for 6 months and I used them ALOT on all kind of surfaces and there pretty much gone now but for me they have been great and I think most people just don't look after them"

"Out of the box, these shoes fit my foot perfectly. I was able to keep the ball closer to my feet on sprints up the wing, and the grip you get with these shoes is extraordinary. All that being said, these cleats will not last. I've had two separate pairs, and each have had separation between the base plate and the nikeSkin material. I thought it was my fault when I tore my first pair, but when the second pair tore during a relatively slow paced game, it became apparent that there just isn't a good adhesion. If you play 4 or more times a week in a competitive setting, these shoes are for you. Otherwise, I'd go with something else that will last."

"Today was my first time wearing my hypervenoms I just got today. when I took them out the box I was like are they sure they sure thisa 10.5. it looked real small then I put it on my feet and they became a 10.5. They are very light weight. All my toes where comfy except the big toe. I was quick as ever, these cleats are nowhere near heavy and weigh you down. I always thought Neymar flop while playing, but I fell every time someone touch my foot. I played on turf today. Overall as of today I would recommend these cleats. I just hope as I break them in more my big toe won't hurt. I left the field with a smile on my face."

"The boots are terrible. First off they're pretty comfy but EXTREMELY un durable. The seam ripped in 2 places after 2 months of using them. And i had the worst blisters imaginable. And i also sprained my ankle while using these. VERY little protection at all. Don't buy these boots"

"i ordered these cleats and i used them the day they came for a club match, and as i was lacing them up the tounge ripped and by the end of the game i took them off and the sole started to rip, but these are the most comfortable pair of cleats i have ever worn but the flaws are just too much. i shipped them back already and i plan on getting the superflys."

"I don't know what kind of aliens nike hides in these boots. These things warp to fit perfectly around whatever is inside them. I stuck my hand in one for awhile, and I could feel the boot start to become a glove. Shapeshifting reptilians may posses this boot. Be warned. If you're not afraid of them, get these phantoms . They're the best boots one could buy."

"Let me start of by saying that these cleats are extremely comfortable, provide a good amount of grip on the ball, are very light, and are a pleasure to use. However, what I didn't find to be so great about them were how badly they handled sudden shifts in movement. The upper tends to stretch pass the sole plate during quick changes of direction, or when coming to abrupt stops. This causes the Nike skin upper to undertake more force than it can handle because the cleats lack rigidity. The lack of rigidity causes the upper to prematurely tear from the sole plate. If somehow Nike could reinforce the upper on these cleats so that they don't role past the sole plate so much that would make these cleats perfect. Again, awesome cleats, but in my opinion they need to be a bit more rigid. With that being said, I would recommend these cleats to a friend, but I would also inform my friend of my friend of the cleats potential for early failure."

"I have only had the shoes for two weeks, and the Nike skin is awsome that's the best part of the shoe, but Nike could improve on the stability of the shoe. I have only put around 5 wears into them, and what sucks for me is that one of my lace holes ripped on my right shoe when I got stepped on. That sucks because I have only had for two weeks, since I cannot tie them properly the shoes do not feel the same."

"These cleats are outstanding for serious players. I have seen many reviews on these cleats braking or falling apart, but every problem I have heard about is easily preventable. I have played for Swansea City Youth Academy for about a year. I arrived with a pair of Hypervenoms and I still wear them today. I haven't had any problems with the shoe and the people that have just seem like a bunch of unexperienced, and frankly bad, footballers."

"they fit well out of the box and i love the touch on the ball but they stretched so when i cut laterally they wouldn't support me and i would slip and my foot would roll on the sole plate but now the braking stud in the middle of the left foot fell completely off the shoe. I filed a claim and sent my shoes back. I hope nike will let me replace them with a mercurial(my previous choice for years) or I will be forced to go to a new brand.
I've worn Nike for years and always enjoyed their products and they've always lasted a significant amount of time but after two and a half months these shoes are dead and i'm in shock."

"I am a forward on my high school team, and I absolutely LOVE these cleats. I don't know what it is about them, but it's only 2 games into the season, and I've already scored 5 goals. They feel great, and while they don't seem to be the most durable, I'm still very satisfied."

"The hypervenom phantom is my most favorite cleat I have ever used it is soft right out of the box although it will need a good hour or 2 break in time I personally didn't notice nikeskin "forming to my foot". The are definitely the most comfortable cleats I have worn I did have the phatal for a bit which were most likely my 3rd favorite cleat but in the hypervenom line you just can't go wrong and you will most likely be just as happy as I am with them."

"I'm an average skill player, and when my ctr360s where stolen I bought these because of an amazing sale...so glad I did! They fit amazing and are so light I barely notice them on. These boots had zero break in period due to the nike skin. It completely forms to your foot, I wore an 8.5 I'm my CTRs so I purchased the same size in the hypervenom, although they have a little more room in the toe, I don't think I would have been happy in an 8. So pretty true to size, maybe a 1/4 size smaller than the CTRs. I love the lacing, it seems like they almost lock as you are tightening them up. Playing in them is awesome, amazing ball control and touch, especially when striking...it's as close to barefoot as I can imagine. All in all, these boots rock! No doubt I will be a hypervenom user for years to come. Just don't discontinue them real quick Nike, like you did the CTRs."

"I play mostly as a fullback, and having previously played with multiple models of T90s and CTRs, I can honestly say that these boots are something else. I have very wide feet so they were super tight at first and took a decent amount of time to break in (around 4-5 sessions) but once they did, they were hands down the most comfortable boots I had ever worn. NikeSkin is just about the softest upper on the market so I recommend going half a size down because it stretches a lot.
I never really cared about the whole "speed boot" thing before I bought these but the difference in acceleration and agility is really noticeable. It doesn't matter if you are a defender or a striker; being able to make turns and adjustments that split second faster is going to come in handy, even for defenders."

"This shoe is really something else it is in my opinion a comfortable shoe despite it being one of Nike's lightweight models. The hypervenoms are very durable and trust me when I say that because I tend to slide tackle a lot and get stepped on quite often during a game. Overall a solid boot by Nike and I will think very long and hard before buying a different pair of cleats that aren't hypervenoms."

"I've been wearing Nike cleats for a few years now & as much as i love them, i keep getting defective pairs or they're simply just not durable enough. I play about 2 times a week on artificial grass & i've had this current pair since March or April & one of my cleats is starting to seperate from the soleplate...again. I believe this is my 2nd pair from Nike.com & i absolutely love the touch & comfort of the cleats but they just don't last long enough. I really want to return them but also means I'll be left without cleats to play with while i wait for a refund or exchange. 3rd times the charm?"
