From about 210 B.C. to 1453 A.D., the 4,000-mile legendary Silk Road operated as a trade route between Europe and Asia. The Nike Kobe X ‘Silk’ comes in orange and burgundy, inspiration from first century silk tapestries that often were designed in this same color and similar motif.

Featuring Kobe X key elements: dynamic traction, hybrid cushioning system, a seamless textile upper, and matching apparel.
