Icardi Shows Off Blackout Next-Gen Nike Hypervenom Phantom III

As the third generation of Nike's football boot line comes ever closer, Inter Milan's Mauro Icardi has become the first high-profile player to give the upcoming Nike Hypervenom Phantom III a runout in training. Thanks to @boozynicco for the spot.

Continuing the Dynamic Fit collar concept of their predecessors, the third-gen Nike Hypervenom Phantom soccer cleats introduce a new one-piece Flyknit upper construction which also features a new 3D texture after the fiasco with the Hypervenom II.

Although it's still offset to the outside, possibly the trademark feature of the Hypervenom, the lacing of the new Nike Hypervenom III has been updated in the way that the lower four lace holes on the outside of each shoe have been replaced by loops. Check out our launch post for more details, in particular regarding the redesigned sole plate of the Nike Hypervenom Phantom III.

Set to be released in early 2017 in a bold 'Electric Green / Hyper Orange' colorway, the Nike Hypervenom Phantom 3 soccer boots are sure to be tested on-pitch by more of Nike's best players throughout the next weeks and months.
