Nike Kill Bill Pack

Nike borrowed the alias, Black Mamba, from one of its headlining athletes, Kobe Bryant, and used it as inspiration for a two-sneaker package. Uma Thurman’s character in Kill Bill shares Bryant’s nickname. Naturally, Nike sought to personify their sneakers with each serpent’s murderous demeanor.

The pack exhibits the Big Nike Hi and Auto Flight Hi. The base-black Big Nike Hi is splattered with blood stains and thereby congruent with any Tarantino film. As for the Auto Flight Hi, it utilizes the red and yellow color scheme that is consistent with the DVD packaging as well as the jumpsuit that Uma Thurman dons during the film. Nike cites Kobe “Black Mamba” Bryant as their connection to Kill Bill with clever insoles. The insoles of each shoe display a “Death List” in the hand-scribbled styling of Uma Thurman. Kobe’s Death List marks such NBA adversaries as Ray Allen and Paul Pierce.

You can get a good look at each shoe after the jump and cop them at Extra Butter. Lastly, hit our Sneaker Geeks: Film vs. Footwear feature to have a look at other film-inspired sneakers.

    Ditto @ War & ibehi. I absolutely love those movies. I’m feeling the Bigs. Surprisingly the red ones are a bit too plain considering the source of inspiration. I know they both couldn’t have blood splatters and all but…this package could have been WAAY better though.

    dope idea….
    the insoles were a good touch….

    but i would have liked to see adidas do this ‘pack’,
    since the jumpsuit had stripes….
    im just curious to see what an all yellow based shoe with the black stripes wouldve looked like…

    If I am correct,Kobe got murdered by allen and pierce. He beat Orlando, not Boston. I know they are also nike/jordan athletes,but lets be serious he got embarrassed in those playoffs.Lets see what happens in a few days

    Nice, I really like the look on both shoes. Not too much going on on neither pair. Can’t always be Blazers and Dunks folks. Open ya mind up a bit.

    Rizzo, lets get serious, kobe has 4 titles to their 1 and is in positioin to win tha 5th this year. so yes they are on the list even if it is them he dosen’t beat. It’s not his fault that boston can’t make it through the eastern conference. Kobe made it back and they didn’t.

    im feeling the Nike Auto Flight Hi. But if they would have picked a Nike SB High Or Low then that would have been much better !

    I think number 4 is bruce bowen asretareded as that is. and i feel what you are sayin Danan, he did make it back he had no choice, cuz if he didnt , beside his skill people would be doubting him hard.
