"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'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."

"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 !)

"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!"
