We see athlete superstars put their all on the courts, but it’s always interesting to get some more insight into their personalities.  Kobe admits that one of his favorite films of all time is Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill.”  This was a Nike release waiting to happen.  But how can this possibly have solid conceptual structure?  Think about this, perfectly noted by fellow Kill Bill fan and movie enthusiast, Jason Faustino of Extra Butter:

Nicknamed the “Black Mamba“, Kobe Bryant’s favorite movie and lethal nickname provided the inspiration behind the Big Nike High and Auto Flight High 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 High 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 2 names crossed off Kobe’s list. Will #’s 3, 4, and 5 be next?

Kill Bill quickly became a top-10 for many, and we’ll what type of tension is provoked out of All-Star Weekend, and see what type of wrath and vengeance is bestowed upon from Bryant as the post-season looms closer.  Available now at Extra Butter.
