"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"

"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?"

"Amazing cleats super comfortable first time ever that I've worn a boot and it took zero break in time and didn't leave my feet hurting after 20 mins of play. I wore them straight out of the box into a game and they were great. The colour way is unreal, plus I scored a sick goal in just my first game and first time wearing the cleats! Definitely recommend just an overall great comfortable pair of boots."

"Nike is my go to brand and these are a great looking cleat. They are lightweight and very comfortable but with no durability. My cleats see a lot of action and after a dozen practices and a couple of games, the topside is separating from the bottom plate around the entire front toe section of both feet. My favorite Nike cleat, the "T90" were warhorses that would survive at least a full calendar year of club, high school and ODP soccer. So the old T90's, battle worn & retired, will need to be put back in action till these are returned for credit.
With other reviewers experiencing the same problem, what cleat does Nike recommend for the player that has to grind it out on the field?

"I purchased these boots for my son two weeks ago for his H.S. training camp to be broken in for season and was very surprised to find that the insole had shifted and the stitching on the inside base below the insole had also began to seperate. Fortunately the folks at Dick's Sporting Good in Deptford, N.J. addressed the issue and exchanged them for a boot that will last for the season!"

"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."
