Admittedly, we are a little slow on getting some proper details out on the new Nike CTR360 Maestri III (Why? The “Castle Villa” Project.) But never fear Nike fans, we have an onslaught of details on its way to you!
To kick it all off, we have this selection of images, profiling the boots design, and some initial thoughts on the new control release. This pair is already well into testing, so stay tuned for a fast turn around and more in-depth details on what to expect if you splash out on a pair.
For those that want to jump the gun, they are currently available for $199.99.
Kanga-Lite Upper with All Conditions Control
The upper definitely feels slightly more rigid than it did on the CTR360 II, primarily due to the inclusion of ACC, something that I am very eager to test out in different conditions! If anything, it might actually benefit the boot as seems to add slightly more cushion.
Stitching Across the Upper
I’m heavily impressed with the 2 lines of stitching that sit across the upper. The intent here is obvious; create areas where the boot can naturally flex with the movement of your feet. It is perfectly situated and adds something simple but purposeful.
New Stud Geometry
Nike has changed things up in this area, and thankfully they have not taken a Vapor VIII approach! The studs are slightly more rounded, with no sharp edges. Nike state it adds “optimal 360-degree movement”, testing is where we will find out if they perform that well!
