There Won't Be Any Synthetic High-End Nike Boot From This Summer

Update: New pictures and details of the completely new Nike Phantom Vision football boot have been leaked. Sergio Busquets trained in the knitted Nike Phantom Vision football boots (he usually is wearing the synthetic Nike Magista Opus, confirming that there won't be a traditional synthetic Nike boot from August 2018).



There will be only one high-end version of the all-new Nike Phantom VSN football boots, we can exclusively reveal. The Nike Phantom Vision 2018 soccer cleats are set for a launch after the 2018 World Cup (late July / early August 2018)



Nike To Release Only 'Mid-Cut' Nike Phantom Vision Soccer Cleats

There won't be a traditional low-cut synthetic version of the new Nike Phantom VSN cleats.


The Nike Phantom Vision soccer boots replace Nike's current control silo, the Nike Magista. But while the Nike Magista football boot is available both as modern high-cut knitted Flyknit version (Nike Magista Obra II Elite DF) and as traditional low-cut synthetic version (Nike Magista Obra II Elite - better known as Nike Magista Opus), there will be only one high-end, 'mid-cut' version of the Nike Phantom Vision boot and no traditional synthetic one.

The brand-new Nike Mercurial 360 Superfly & Vapor Boots are actually identical apart from the collar

In fact, from the the launch of the Nike Phantom Vision football boots, there won't be a traditional low-cut synthetic Nike high-end soccer boot available anymore as the Swoosh already ditched the low-cut synthetic Nike Mercurial Vapor XI in favor of the knitted low-cut Nike Mercurial Vapor 360.


It remains to be seen if players such as Iniesta, Busquets, Casimiro and Eriksen, who are currently wearing the traditional low-cut synthetic Nike Magista Obra II Elite (without DF 'Dynamic Fit' collar), will seamlessly switch to the all-new Nike Phantom Vision football boots (many Nike Mercurial Vapor players still wear the old-gen synthetic boots).
