Nike Phantom GT Elite FG x Skepta Bloody Chrome University Red/Chrome Black/Cool Grey
FG - Firm Ground
Change the game with your unique flow wearing Nike Phantom GT Elite FG x Skepta Bloody Chrome football boots in University Red/Chrome Black/Cool Grey, a special edition colourway designed in partnership with the man himself.
As is right for one of music’s great innovators, Skepta’s transformative influence is felt in every element of the boot. The artistic butterfly print on the upper represents the idea of creative rebirth, while all the regular PhantomGT branding has been replaced with “PhantomSK” for a true one-off look. Chrome details nod to his love of silver jewellery, while an iridescent coating on the heels references the thermographic cover art of his 2019 album “Ignorance Is Bliss”.
With a Generative Texture across the upper of the boot, the Nike Phantom GT Elite FG gives you ultimate control in any situation. Thicker and denser at the instep and toe, the grippy texturing improves your touch when receiving the ball and allows greater precision as you ping a pass to your teammate or fire a shot into the top corner.
For dribbling, the Phantom GT’s extra grip combines with a Flyknit construction to give you better feel on the ball, also offering additional support to enable quick cuts and turns. Underfoot, the new Hyperquick system features a streamlined chassis with a unique soleplate – single piece, but with an open arch, reducing weight while maintaining stability. A hybrid stud configuration with innovative split-shift studs at the forefoot and rearfoot provides dynamic traction.

Firm GroundBoots with Firm Ground soleplates are only to be used on natural short-grass surfaces that is firm underfoot but may be slightly wet. Designed specifically for this playing surface, they offer acceleration, comfort and enhanced traction, dispersing stud pressure evenly across the foot. FG soleplates are fixed (not removable) and are used worldwide; wetter countries tend to use them spring to autumn. FG boots are not to be used on artificial ground (AG) surfaces as the construction is not designed for the extra friction. FG boots used on AG surfaces will invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty.
Soft GroundSoft Ground (SG) soleplates are specifically designed for use on wet and soft to very soft natural grass pitches that may also be muddy and/or waterlogged. Used worldwide, mainly during winter months, boots made for soft ground have removable, replaceable screw-in studs that can be plastic, entirely metal or metal-tipped and typically come in a six-stud configuration (4 at the forefoot, 2 slightly longer at the heel). Screw-in studs must be checked and tightened before use as during manufacture they are machine-inserted and may be loose.
TurfTurf (also called Astro Turf) is an older, more unforgiving type of synthetic-grass surface consisting of either sand or water-based carpet typically laid on concrete. Subsequently a harder and faster surface, boots for use on turf (TF) usually have a cushioned midsole and a very durable, flat, multi-lugged or dimpled rubber outsole because turf requires light stud penetration. Owing to the hard nature of the surface and the friction it creates, no other outsole type should be used on turf and will result in considerable wear to the studs and soleplate edges and may result in injury.
Artificial GrassArtificial Grass surfaces (also known as an all-weather surface) typically consist of 3G (rubber crumb) or 4G (longer pile, combination of rubber/sand infill, more closely resembling actual grass). Fifth generation artificial grass is yet to be widely used. Boots made for AG are specifically designed, usually with less nylon to increase durability for the extra abrasion associated with synthetic grass and feature more numerous and densely concentrated studs. They may also vary in height for improved traction and/or hollowed-out to reduce weight and enhance cushioning. AG boots can also be used on firm ground (FG), though performance will depend on how dry and firm it is.
StreetStreet typically describes pitches or surfaces that are often found in inner-city residential areas. They consist of varying hard surfaces such as tarmac, paved or concreted hard-court areas and are often contained by a 'cage' constructed of steel or wire netting. Shoes for play on Street (ST) pitches will have an outsole made of extra hard-wearing rubber with a multi-lugged traction pattern similar in appearance to turf shoes. They also usually have midsole cushioning for shock absorption and comfort and are equipped with extended rubber toe bumpers to cope with scuffing.
IndoorIndoor surfaces for small-sided games such as 5-a-side and Futsal are usually flat, extremely hard and unforgiving and typically consist of varnished wood, linoleum or a smooth, painted synthetic or composite material. For grip, indoor outsoles (IN) are usually flat to maximise ground contact and slick in appearance with a minimal, non-aggressive traction pattern or grooves for flex and to dissipate surface moisture. They typically use non-marking moulded gum rubber and usually have midsole cushioning for shock absorption and comfort. Indoor shoes cannot be used on abrasive street surfaces such as concrete or gravel as they will quickly wear out.
