Since I am in the process of testing out the new Nike CTR360 Maestri II, I decided to take out the original CTR360s for comparison. What I found on my balcony broke my own rules on how to take care of your boots. After playing in the rain two weeks ago, I left them outside to dry off – but I failed to clean them. The result is a pair of very baked pair of boots.
Moral of the story; to ensure you get the best life out of your boots wipe them down before you leave them out to dry, or in other words the opposite to above! I have cleaned them in the time since and finally got them out on the pitch for comparison this morning. In terms of the new CTR360 Maestri II, they are working out really well, a great boot that has thus far been super easy to break-in. Below is a teaser picture, stay tuned for a full review in the next week.
