Closer Look: Ryan Bertrand's Blackout Boots

England Ryan Bertrand was back in unbranded boots tonight in his first game at Euro 2016. Having already worn blacked-out Nike Hypervenom and Mercurial Vapor X cleats over the last few month, the left back this time chose the recently released Nike Mercurial Vapor XI.
