There's a new CTR360 in town that will be lighting up football pitches across Europe! In a rather unusual colour display for Nike's popular control boot, the new White/Silver/Purple Maestri II is a step away from some of the more conservative colours we're used to!
Not only does the upper consist of a deep metallic purple, but Nike have taken the step of adding an equally bright volt colour to the tongue/heel branding and rear studs. We think this CTR is set for a great response! Share your thoughts with the SoccerBible community online, on Twitter and on Facebook.
The new White/Silver/Purple Nike CTR360 Maestri II have been announced as an exclusive release to the standard versions of the popular Nike football boots. An interesting move by Nike to remind us that the boot is by no means an after-thought to the Maestri II Elite! While the Black/White/Red colourway is currently dominating the feet of CTR players, it will be interesting to see how many make the switch!
The Nike CTR360 Maestri's are into only their third ever football season, and in such a short space of time the range has become one of the most popular football boots on the market. Standard's and Elite's alike, the CTR360 range has seen a strong uptake from players all over the park whether their position is defence, midfield or attack.
The Nike CTR360 Maestri football boots have gained quite a reputation for being one of the most comfortable boots on the market. The comfortable Poron insole remains from the original Nike CTR football boots, and Nike have further padded the heel and added a non-slip material to improve fit.
On the instep of the boots, the new instep pads have incorporated a combination of technology from the T90 Laser III and the CTR Maestri I. Split into two to cover a larger surface area, the new pads enhance ball control and boost distribution through an innovative fin structure.
The dampening pods remain the stand out feature on the Nike CTR360 Maestri II football boots and are a key asset in achieving the theory of cushioning the ball and applying more boot surface area. The CTR360 has achieved numerous impressive performance reviews and with this exciting new color-way are sure to enjoy more on-pitch success!
A lightweight and durable TPU soleplate enables the boot to elegantly grace the surface of the pitch while offering supreme comfort. The Maestri II football boots feature a bladed dual density stud structure for traction and stability on natural surfaces.
It's hard to predict how many high profile CTR players will make the update to the new White/Silver/Purple Maestri II. Boot-spotters keep a close eye on players such as Van der Vaart and Iniesta (once he returns from injury!) Here at SoccerBible, we can't wait to see this new colourway get some on-pitch action! They will hit stores on Oct 1, priced at £135 GBP / $180 USD / €175 EURO.
