At a time when it’s universally recognised that football is going soft, Nike Football has released a limited edition all black version of its classic CTR360 football boots – harking back to the days when diving belonged to the pool and pink boots had no place on a football pitch.

As the final CTR360 boots Nike will produce, the all black look has been chosen to effectively turn the “lights out” on the range. Elegant and understated, this retirement pair certainly get the Street Gentry approval. Each pair are individually numbered and can be found on the Nike website.
