Translating Nike’s new Hypervenom II boot for small-sided football, HypervenomX is designed for attacking players who are deceptive by nature, just like their Phantom II counterparts on the grass and artificial pitches. The boot is engineered to work with the foot and enable deadly agility. Nike Flywire is strategically mapped into the upper with additional siping added in heavy ball-contact areas for enhanced touch. The Flywire is integrated into a responsive loft mesh of varying density levels.
HypervenomX joins MagistaX and MercurialX to comprise the NikeFootballX family. NikeFootballX merges Nike’s pinnacle boot technology with design elements unique to small-sided football. The “X” in NikeFootballX is a nod to the combined number of players in a game of five-a-side.
“The popularity of football exceeds the amount of space available to play it,” says Max Blau, VP Nike Football Footwear. “Small-sided is increasingly the form of the game young players are introduced to and it’s where their style emerges.”
HypervenomX is the first NikeFootballX boot to mix a Flyknit collar with an enhanced mesh upper. HypervenomX also features recycled Nike Grind rubber on high abrasion and drag areas for enhanced durability. Comfort against hard surfaces has also been taken into consideration with Phylon cushioning.
HypervenomX debuts in a black “Street” colorway as well as the lead colorway of its 11-a-side counterpart, which has an Wolf Grey/Orange colour. Both boots will be available in indoor court (IC) and turf (TF) versions with outsoles that cater not only to the relevant surface, but the underfoot play prevalent in small-sided football.
Nike HypervenomX will be available beginning June 5.
