Special One-off Nike Mercurial Vapor X Raheem Sterling
Here are the unique Raheem Sterling Vapor Xs.
Overall the boots are divided into two half by the midfoot. The forefoot is in blue while the other half is in white.
On the lateral side, there is Sterling's signature on the outstep and his number 7. At the heels area is his name next to the 'St. George' cross and above the 'England' print.
Moving to the medial side, Nike details Sterling's journey, which runs from the forefoot to the ankle.
Starting with his birth place “Maverley, Kingston, Jamaica” then to “St Raphael, NW10”, where he resided during his childhood in London.
Next on the line is “2288 Yards” - the distance from he lived to Wembley Stadium. The final point is “Wembley, 27.03.2015”, which is the date of his first-ever goal for the England national team. It was a 4-0 triumph over Lithuana.
A graphic of the Wembley Arch also features on the insteps of the boots.
The soleplate is the standard Mercurial Vapor X SG variation.
With Sterling recently signed for New Balance and the fact that the Mercurial range is now in its' 14th generation, these unique Vapor Xs will definitely not receive an official release.
