The new Nike Phantom VNM is the old Total 90 Nike surprises us with the third chapter of the Future DNA pack

No, it's not the shoe you used when you were about 10 years old, but it looks like that.

This is the Nike PhantomVNM, packaged to resemble the iconic Nike Air Zoom Total 90 II of 2002 and is the third silhouette of the "Future DNA" package, dove Nike has redesigned great classics of the past by dressing them with the most technological materials. 2002 is a shoe that made history, with a design worn by the likes of Luis Figo, Paul Scholes, Roberto Carlos and Francesco Totti in the 2002 World Cup, and later by a young Wayne Rooney Everton edition.

So, after the Phantom VSN "Hypervenom" and the Mercurial Vapor "OG Superfly", here is the third chapter of this "back to the future" saga: created to offer power and precision while maintaining maximum comfort during the 90 minutes , the T90 II shares the characteristics with the new PhantomVNM, giving particular importance to that revolutionary aesthetic, with that "band" that crossed the forefoot with a contrasting color to the rest of the shoe, which made it the trademark starting from the 2000s. The decentralized asymmetrical lacing system of the Phantom VNM integrates perfectly with the design of the T90 II, which also had a transverse lacing system, with the black strip starting from the tongue, covering the laces and reaching the tip of the shoe.

The Nike Phantom VNM Future DNA ''T90'' pays homage to the classic black, white and red color of its predecessor and strengthens the main feature of the shoe, the precision, already pushed in 2002, through modern Phantom VNM technology to facilitate an attack powerful. In particular, the new silhouette features a Precision Pwr attachment area in the instep, or 13 ridges positioned at specific angles and ascending heights to help keep the ball lowered and provide more grip on its surface. Since the Phantom VNM has replaced the Hypervenom and the Hypervenom has replaced the T90 series, it looks like a complete circle.

Like the rest of the "Future DNA" pack, the Nike T90 VNM, released this morning on, will be in a limited edition.
