I have to admit that this is my preferred color release of the Nike CTR360 Maestri range, coming in a White/Team Royal/Metallic Silver. We featured the initial roll-outs that came in a Red/Black and White/Black color a few months back. Nike have completely designed and marketed these cleats towards playmakers and center mid’s who stamp their mark on a game. Cesc Fabregas and Landon Donovan are two such players who have put in some excellent performances wearing the CTR lately. You can get your hands on a pair right now!
In terms of performance the CTR360 Maestri has a lot to offer:
- Upper created using a revolutionary Kanga-Lite synthetic leather that inhibits the properties of natural Kangaroo leather without the added weight.
- The strike zone has Innovative control pods that are made of a dampening foam, designed to enhance ball control and optimal passing pace.
- Unique cleat geometry with off center lacing, alligned towards the toe unlike other cleats that veer to the outside of the cleat.
- Weigh in at a very average 9.8oz, pretty decent for a cleat of this design.
