Nike have finally unveiled the next generation of the CTR Maestri series, the Nike CTR360 Maestri III.
Set to be worn by the likes of Andres Iniesta, the new 9.2 oz CTR360 Maestri III has a whole host of new features.
The upper is composed of a Kanga-Lite synthetic material that should offer a great touch and a more durable boot. While the innovative new All Conditions Control technology ensures that you get the same level of touch in wet and dry situations.
We’ve compared to the design on the upper to the surface of the moon, with the dimples meant to increase the amount of friction and in turn aid touch and control. Asymmetrical lacing also provides for a great striking zone.
Arguably the most important feature on any CTR past and present, the pass pad has received an overhaul. Fins of varying sizes make up the pass pad and are meant to maximize control with the ball and make passing and receiving the ball that much easier.
The soleplate of the new CTR has been touted as more responsive than ever before thanks to 360 degree stud placement. As a midfielder is constantly in tight space and makes quick, sharp turns, the conical and bladed studs on either side of the soleplate should ensure comfort as well as a reactive boot.
The Nike CTR360 Maestri III are available for pre-order now but will only be hitting shelves on August 1st. Are you liking Nike’s latest control boot? Leave your comments in the section below.
