UPDATE: Neymar Trains In Mysterious Blackout Boots - All-New Nike Phantom GT?

Update: We were made aware of another image from the PSG training session during which Neymar tested an unreleased, blacked-out pair of Nike boots earlier this month. On it we can clearly see the Swoosh placement, which is different from any existing Nike models - which makes it more likely he was indeed trying out the upcoming Phantom GT.



PSG superstar Neymar already some days ago trained in totally blackout football boots. Let us take a closer look at them - Neymar was not the first Nike athlete to wear them...


Neymar Wears Same Blackout Boots As Hazard in Training - All-New Nike Phantom GT?




The boots worn by Neymar are totally blackout. They have a synthetic upper that appears to be quite thin but relatively stiff, a very low collar and no distinct tongue. The sole plate seems to be similar to the Nike Mercurial sole plate.



While it first seems like that Neymar was wearing a never-seen-before soccer cleat without any brandings, a closer look and a look in the past reveals that Neymar's blackout cleats could be the same as those used by Hazard in training in November 2018.


Eden Hazard Trains In Mysterious, Never-Seen-Before Blackout Boots

Both Eden Hazard and Neymar usually lace up in the Nike Mercurial Vapor 360 football boots. However, as the current-gen Nike Mercurial soccer cleats were just released half a year ago, it is possible that they were not testing the Mercurial but an all-new boot silo - the Nike Phantom GT.


The Nike Phantom GT is the all-new Nike Phantom boot silo that will replace the Nike Phantom VNM in Summer 2020.
