Nike have just released a new colorway in the ever popular Nike CTR360 Maestri II range. This latest colorway has a professional look that is extremely effective, coming in a mixed Black/White/Challenge Red. I like these a lot! The black upper gives them a no-nonsense feel, but when you add the red stripe and white upper, it all combines for a style that really works!
I am highlighting the CTR360 Elite release in this post rather than the more economical regular version, based on the fact that I have reviewed them more recently. As reference, I feel the regular version has just as much to offer the everyday player as its more expensive older brother. They are both built with a Kanga-Lite upper that is designed to act just like real leather while offering additional waterproof and durability properties.
When I tested the CTR360 Maestri II Elite, I found them to be very effective in-game. Nike’s goal with this release was to create a boot that masters control while allowing players to receive and distribute passes with ease. After testing them, I can tell you almost every player on the field will benefit from the high performance level you get while wearing these. The benefit of the Elite version is an 8.8oz boot compared to a 10.8oz regular version, but you also have to account for an additional $120. Either way, these boots rank up amongst the highest performing on the market. And consider the overall appeal of these, they seem like a pretty decent purchase!
