Football Boots > Nike CTR360 Maestri III Football Boots - Citrus/White/Black

Nike's charge into 2013 has begun, and as the brand once again aims for big things, each of their boot silo's are to receive refreshing updates for the new year. The CTR360 takes on this bold two-tone citrus/black combination decorated with a white 'Swoosh'.  

The Nike CTR360 range has fast become a dominant force in the game, despite being a relatively young boot. But the CTR's emergence has reflected a shift from 'power' to 'control' boots. With echoes of the sonic yellow/black launch colours, this new paint scheme won't be viewed as too dramatic.

The CTR360 Maestri III was Nike's first boot to feature All Conditions Control (ACC) technology – a feature that has now been included across each of Nike's four silos. An idea born out of discussions with professional players including Andres Iniesta, Nike designers understood the need for consistent touch and feel on the ball, especially in wet conditions. The ACC benefit is created by a special treatment during the development of the upper materials, to deliver the consistent feel on the ball at all times. 

The Nike CTR360 Maestri III has been re-engineered to deliver enhanced control, traction, support and lightweight comfort. Using next generation Kanga-Lite synthetic material for an assured touch and durability. The pass-pad has been revamped for 2012, featuring a 3D control pad which uses separate strips with fins of varying sizes to hug the arch and maximise contact with the ball.  

An asymmetrical lacing system enlarges the area used to control the ball and a new streamlined design enhances touch sensitivity. A dimpled texture on the mid-foot doesn't just offer an aesthetics but also increases friction, once again aiding the players control and touch. The FG boots also use a more responsive sole-plate featuring a 360 degree stud placement; perfect for a midfielder's constant turns and cuts. 

The Citrus/White/Black Nike CTR360 Maestri III football boots are available to pre-order now ahead of a January launch for around £145 GBP / €175 EURO / $190 USD (FG) and £155 GBP / €190 EURO / $210 USD (SG), and we can expect to Andres Iniesta, Jack Wilshere and Ganso all sporting the new look.

So I was waiting for a brand new colourway to buy the CTRs, instead i get the exact same colourway as before, what do these Nike designers get payed for? Im looking at the screen now and see two different LZ colourways! Nike is losing its reputation and fast!

why does it look so much like the tranquista???

EnglishMaestro10 something has to be wrong with you if you think that yellow and orange are the same color son. Nike isn't losing anything, you should go buy both those awful  LZ colors metallic silver and green garbage if you hate these so much.

@EnglishMaestro10 - I bought these Citrus ones over the summer because I didn't like the yellow ones. The other colorway will be much different - Black/Blue/Pink/White.

@F50mate - There's no more VIII's, the next Mercurial release are the IX.

Pointless colour, although different they are far to close to the original yellow release.

December 14, 2012 6:39 PM

AGlose said:

The first four or so comments sum it up.

Next, please.

The pads need to be contrasted. Looks like the next tier model with like this. I quite like this boot, looks interesting, despite the lack of a serious color change.

 If you ask me, orange should stay off boots. Enough said.

butthurt Nike fans defending them again...

if the launch colourway was different, these would be great. however I think this is just plain lazy on Nike's part.

howieg2 said:

what the hell Nike? its exactly the same as your launch colorway and you coldnt even change the pads to be opposite of the color it lays on? It looks exactly like the trequartista.

hayden96 said:

from a distance these would honestly just look like a dirty pair of the yellow ones... kinda dissapointing for me.

December 17, 2012 11:01 PM

LADA said:

i think a silver/black colorway would be tight

December 18, 2012 11:00 PM

Edagger said:

Anyone have any advice as to how these fit?  Small, large or True to Size?

December 20, 2012 2:43 PM

HappyBarry said:

Suppose there's only so many colours to combo with black, not really feeling these as already pointed out too similar to first release colour. Kinda look like something you'd make on NikeID rather than an official release.

starvip said:

To be honest when I saw these on here I was thinking lazy nike, but now having a pair you realise the colour is so different in person, by far my favourite. These are VERY orange.
