The new Nike Kobe X ‘Silk,’ inspired by Kobe Bryant’s personal connections to both Asia and Europe, and the transcontinental Silk Road.
Born in Italy, adored by China, known worldwide, Kobe Bryant is a cultural icon and a global ambassador. His connections to Europe and Asia led the Nike team to the idea of the Silk Road, and the Kobe X ‘Silk.’
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.
The new Nike Kobe X ‘Silk’ arrives at Nike.com and in select Nike retailers globally on March 21.[divide]
