Nike dish out bold HyperVenom update before the close of the year.

Fresh on the heels of the new Flash Pack, Nike are continuing to push out extra updates before the close of the year, this time in the shape of the Neo Lime/Black HyperVenom Phantom. It's a bold statement colourway for a boot that's still in its infancy, but one that will no doubt have many players slipping into come 2014.  

The latest HyperVenom update is the silo's sixth colourways and it's no surprise that Nike are spoiling us for colourways, it's that time of the year. As we head into the winter break and the second half of the season approaches, many players will be settling into a new set of boots to take into the new year.

Expected to hit European pitches this month, the new Neo Lime/Black colourway has been given a two-tone green across the upper with black HyperVenom decals and Nike branding. The use of two similar shades of green gives this HyperVenom a different feel and one that really works for us. As the HyperVenom's headline athlete, Neymar has been giving the boots an early run-out in training this week.

Since their launch in May of this year the HyperVenom has been hugely successful both in the professional and amateur ranks, gathering an impressive following of top players that includes Neymar, Wayne Rooney and Robert Lewandowski. A boot that combines the latest in technology, innovation and style, the HyperVenom has been Nike's headline silo for 2013.
