While World Cup players enjoy their late summer holidays, those not involved in Russia have returned back to their day jobs for pre-season. New season boots are on show across Premier League training grounds, most notably the PhantomVSN as Nike assemble a new look squad for their youngest silo.

The PhantomVSN has replaced the Magista series but Nike are placing a more attacking focus on the boot with Kevin De Bruyne and Philippe Coutinho set to switch into the new silo when they return to their respective clubs. For now though, the first sightings of the design have been spotted on the feet of a number of Premier League players, including Liverpool trio Nathaniel Clyne, Andrew Robertson, and Daniel Sturridge, as well as Arsenal's Shkodran Mustafi.


All four players have switched into the "Raised on Concrete" colourway which will be the on-pitch design Nike payers will adopt to kick off the 2018/19 season. That colourway will drop on July 30, with the "Black Op" edition dropping first on July 18. Expect to see more Nike players joining the Phantom party as pre-season progresses.
