Inspired by and designed for Rafael Nadal. The CB 1.3 was the first shoe which help to set a more aggressive and bold direction for the tennis department while taking some cues from some of Nike’s iconic product.
The shoe, which started the « Ballistec » franchise, was created with a full injected Kurim ( Drag-On X ) upper developed closely with Nike Innovation Kitchen and ended up being one of the most durable tennis shoe ever made.
