Nike have launched a new boot by the name, CTR360 Maestri III boot. Maestri – meaning Maestro in Italian – is the boot favoured by midfield players like Iniesta who rely on innovative performance features to enhance their control of the ball, and therefore the game itself.
The film can be seen here :
On shooting and starring in the video Iniesta said: “It was fun to shoot; it is always good to do something a little different from the norm. The truth is that I really like the ad, it’s nice.” He added that “I’m obviously not a puppet … but I’ll keep this puppet with affection.”
He had to say this about the boot itself: “The CTR 360 III Maestri is the main tool of my trade, it’s what makes me feel comfortable on the pitch, secure when I touch the ball, when I want to dribble or make a play. It’s important to feel comfortable in your boots, and I do.”
