In my opinion, this latest Nike CTR360 Maestri II release is one of the more absorbing looking cleats we have seen in recent times! It is not often we see the color yellow used, and it leaves me with mixed emotions about this release. Its not the best release we have seen in the CTR360 Maestri range, but it does give a new option to players looking for something different. There is no doubt that the colorway pops and the metallic silver adds nice detailing. The official colorway is White/Black/Tour Yellow/Metallic Silver.
The one thing I emphasized in my review of the CTR360 Maestri II is that they are a boot designed for playmakers. I think this is pretty clearly labeled through Nike’s advertising campaign, but when you wear them it is even more clear. They offer pretty much the complete package for any player who fits the playmaker mold, or any player that aspires to be a playmaker. But the best thing about the boot is how they suit nearly every player on the field and I can see many different style of players wearing them.
Recently, I have received some emails from readers about certain sizes in the Elite series not being available. Right now sizes 6US through 13US are available in this version. If you decide to get a pair, the Elite version comes it at around $299, while the Regular version is priced at $180. Again, the only real difference between both versions is that the Elite features a carbon fiber soleplate, which results in a lighter soccer cleat.
On a final note, if there are players on a tight budget, I strongly recommend checking out the Trequartista version. I tested the original release a few months back and was extremely impressed with the performance and value for money they offer!
