This year has been a momentous one for Nike's premium heritage boot. The re-energised Nike Tiempo IV Elite certainly did enough to earn your vote, after comfortably seeing off competition from the adidas adiPURE IV, Puma King Finale, Umbro Speciali 92, and Joma Total Fit.
Released in June, the Nike Tiempo IV Elite is all about tradition and innovation. As one of the years most talked about boots, they could be the dark horse in the race for the 2011 Boot of the Year title! See the full Nike Tiempo IV Elite article here.
The CTR360 remains champion of the control category, beating rivals including the Umbro Geometra, Mizuno Supersonic Wave II and Lotto Fuerzapura II 100. Despite being worn by some of the games most creative players, 2011 will be remembered for the departure of Cesc Fabregas. With a design overhaul in the locker for 2012, next year will be a very exciting time for the Nike CTR360! See the full CTR360 Maestri II article here.
