The Nike CTR360 Maestri is the shoe to have at the moment with everyone seemingly rushing out to grab a pair. But, if your a recent college graduate like me, or just stuck for money in this recession, then they’re simply out of your price range. So, I had a look at the cheaper version of the same shoes in the same color scheme, the Nike CTR360 Trequartista 2. I tried them on compared to the Maestri 2’s we have here at the site, and honestly, they don’t play that differently

The upper on these shoes made of a synthetic leather substance that feel good on your feet and contours to them well once you break them in. It should take 2 or 3 match to get the fit is just right. The touch pads on the toe of the shoe aren’t as pronounced as those of the higher end Maestri, but I feel like they still get the job done. The touch dampers on the instep are also without the fins you’d see on the elite version of these Nike soccer shoes, but still work for me. And honestly all the fancy touch pads in the world won’t help you if you lack co-ordination.

The heel of the shoes features a heel cup which help your feet stay in place in the shoes and a strengthen plastic sole plate runs along the bottom. The studs aren’t TPU injected, but are arranged in the same pattern as the elite version so function the same.

Overall, these are a great pair of cleats with the best aspects and spirit of the Maestri II elite within them. But, at $80.99, you can actually afford them, which is a big plus for me.
