West Bromwich's Salomón Rondón likely has become the second high-profile player to show off the next-gen Nike Hypervenom Phantom III football boots after Inter's Icardi has already trained in the much-awaited next-gen cleats earlier this week.

The third-gen Nike Hypervenom Phantom soccer cleats introduce a new one-piece Flyknit upper construction with a new 3D texture, while the overall concept of the boots is the same as before. The main new feature of the HV III is the fact that the lower four lace holes on the outside of each shoe have been replaced by loops (visible in the second close-up picture).

The Nike Hypervenom 3 soccer boots will hit pitches in February 2017 worn by the likes as Lewandowski and Neymar in a striking Electric Green and Hyper Orange paint job.
