Unisport WebTV: Jakob compares the Hypervenom and Vapor IX

Since the launch of the Hypervenom Phantom in the beginning of the summer, the boot has marched forwards, winning the hearts of hordes of people, who have added the element of unpredictability to their game. It's popularity is now only rivaled by the Nike flagship, the Mercurial-silo. But how do the two boots compare to one and other, what are the differences and are there any similarities? - Find out in today's WebTV episode.

When the Nike Hypervenom Phantom was unveiled, there was lots of focus on the fact that the boot was made for “A New Breed of Attack” - a completely new type of striker. This is why the boot is very light, has a tight fit and is made to create space out of nothing.

The boot has rocketed to fame and stars like Neymar, Rooney, Ibrahimovic and Sneijder are all wearing the new Hypervenom to great effect.

One of the most frequently asked questions in connection with the launch has been, how the Hypervenom performs, when compared to the Mercurial Vapor IX. It bares quite a resemblance to the Hypervenom, with its low weight, a thin and supple upper, as well as having plenty of focus on speed.

But how do the boots get on, when they face off in a Hypervenom vs. Vapor IX battle. It's V12 vs. X1.1, Teijin OLM12 vs. NikeSKIN and fiberglass vs. nylon. Watch the episode above and hear Jakob's thoughts on the two boots.
