World's First Look: All-New Next-Gen Nike Phantom GT 3 Boots Spotted in Inter Training

Roberto Gagliardini of Inter Milan was spotted wearing blackout boots in training yesterday, giving us a first look at what is almost certainly the next-generation Nike Phantom GT 3 Elite.

Gagliardini is a regular of the Nike Phantom GT. This makes us very sure that he was wearing the next-generation Nike Phantom GT 3 Elite soccer cleats in a prototype version.

The next-gen Nike Phantom GT 3 Elite soccer cleats are very, very different from the current generation. It boasts three very interesting elements - the upper texture, a lace cover as well as a very interesting sole / external heel counter.

The upper of the next-generation Nike Phantom GT 3 Elite boots come with a multiple arrow 3D pattern for increased ball control and curve.

Similar to the Nike Phantom VSN, the Nike Phantom GT 3 comes with a lace cover. It is not a laceless cleat.

Three remarkable elements are totally different from the current generationThe back sole/heel counter area is different from anything we have seen for a Nike football boot so far. There is a thin material between the heel counter of the soleplate and the upper.

We can exclusively leak that Nike will not launch the next-generation Nike Phantom GT 3 boots before August/September 2022. In summer 2022, there will be new colorways of the current-gen Nike Phantom GT 2 but no next-gen boots.

Nike will launch the next-gen Phantom GT 3 in late 2022 likelyIn fact, we can well assume that the Nike Phantom GT 3 boots will make their debut shortly ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

There is also a small chance that Nike will launch a "new" football boot silo to replace the Phantom GT, but it is unlikely.

Stay tuned for more about what is certainly the next-gen Nike Phantom GT III.
