So a few weeks ago, I posted about the Kill Bill sneakers. Now its known from Jay at Extra Butter that is rather sKobe Bryant’s new collaboration with Nike, titled ‘Kill Bill’.
‘Kobe Bryant of the current NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers has some things in common with me. He enjoys nutella, is a cinephile, and his favorite movie happens to be Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Kill Bill’…a favorite of mine as well. Nicknamed the ‘Black Mamba’, Kobe Bryant’s favorite movie and lethal nickname provided the inspiration behind the Big Nike High and Auto Flight Hi below. In addition to being an incredibly dangerous snake, ‘Black Mamba’ was also the nickname for of the most deadly member of the ‘Deadly Viper Assassination Squad’, played by Uma Thurman. The Big Nike High’s colorway is quite obvious with the upper also receiving a splattering of blood – most likely from the blade of a Hattori Hanzo sword! The Auto Flight Hi comes with a mixed nubuck/leather upper and a classy vulcanized bottom. The in-soles also feature Black Mamba’s infamous ‘Death List’, with a little Kobe-twist to it. Last year’s NBA championship defeat was over the Boston Celtics – leaving Ray Allen and Paul Pierce to be the first two names crossed off Kobe’s list. Will #’s three, four and five be next?
