Nike CTR360 Maestri vs Adidas Predator LZ
Bryan: Adidas Predator LZ – Even though I am not a fan of where the Predator has gone, I do think Adidas has cornered a new section of the market quite well and thelightweight performance of the LZ works extremelly effectively.
Kevin: I’m on the fence with this one, both good boots with nice synthetics, the pass pads on the Maestri are excellent but the quantity of the Lethal Zones even it out.
Jim: Nike CTR360 Maestri – Kangalite is the major factor in my choice as it is by far the best synthetic material on the market. I absolutely love the ball feel that you get with it. Also the control elements are simple but effect as opposed to complicated like the LZ.
Tyler: Adidas Predator LZ – It’s not just for show; the lethal zones actually play a role in how you strike the ball. While the CTR boasts comfort and decent control with the instep, the LZ comes out on top in terms of overall control with any part of the foot.
Colin: Adidas Predator LZ – In this comparison, Adidas wins again in my book. The upper on the Predator LZ combines a great leather like feel, with plenty of added texture for use in either wet or dry conditions.
Ethan: NIke CTR360 Maestri – The control/pass pads on the Maestri are the real deal. They give you the control and touch you need for both passing and receiving. I felt like the LZ has a lot going on while the Maestri is simpler and more effective.
Richard: Nike CTR360 Maestri – The CTR is the daddy of the control boot and for me it’s been the boot I haven’t yet gotten my hands on that I’ve always wanted to try.
Final Tally: CTR360 Maestri 3 – Predator LZ 3
