Extra Butter x Asics “Death List 5”: Volume 1

October 8, 2013 BY / 6

Sneaker News:  Putting out a five-shoe pack is obviously an ambitious undertaking. Did you guys have any reservations about taking on such a large project?

Bernie:  Ambitous, yes; but absolutely necessary to truly develop the concept.  The film in which it’s inspired by is multi-dimensional, why not a capsule collection? When approaching any project, we vet out all parameters and possibilities, so rarely do we have reservations because we go into it completely prepared for execution. When it comes down to it, doing one colorway wouldn’t have justified either of us claiming that this is one of our all-time favorite films.

Jason:  Reservations are only there for me within the first few minutes of it’s initial conception. From there, I see the vision in a way where it usually tells me that this is EXACTLY the type of project for us. I firmly believe in our team’s ability to come together and execute projects like this, and know we can learn things along the way and experience things that will be unforgettable.

SN:  Is it a given that any Extra Butter collab shoe we see will be movie-themed?

Bernie:  Although Extra Butter’s namesake and core element is film, our core followers quickly understand that we’re passionate for various things. Sooner than later, that’ll reflect in tangible goods that we produce.

Jason:  Most times for me at least, it’s films that seem permanently lodged in my head – almost as if they have to make their way out and onto something in some way shape or form. But, I don’t think it will be a given at all. We’re a mixed bunch that are close-knit and inspired by a lot of things. The conversations and experiences we have together often lead to ideas we end up wanting to touch on later. Nostalgia is always a driving force behind the projects we head towards, but it’s not limited to film by any means.


so death list of 5 with the 3 kills of Volume 2 coming next..what about making a Black Mamba one? just to finish the DVAS.. about the colurs of these collabos maybe not all 5 are really nice but I think every one is worth to cop imo


The fact they had 5 diffrent WONDERFUL BASE MODELS, and managed to fuck up every single pair of these is hilarious. EVERY ONE of these "collabos" is so terrible. I dont know how you fuck up 5 dif pairs on 5 dif. tries. Laughable effort.  So whats worse is they will sell out and go straght to ebay and the funny shit is they are gonna sit there. Good luck reselling these fuckers!

@andred77777 look at this dudes comment history..... going out of your way to hate on literally every post about this shoe.   Wonder what shitty ass store and employee this is thats jealous of EB doing their thing....Cant think of any other reason why he'd be taking this shit so personal.


@puffy nips @andred77777 wow "comment history" aye? i love runners and hate seeing shitty ass collabos left and right is all. Extra butter had some good stuff, just not this one. Horrible, and never should have been released. But I suppose you like it huh


Oh so you're a shoe designer? That's great! I guess that makes your feedback/opinion valid. Hey, do you have a portfolio of any collabs you've done? Would love to see! :)


.......yeah, I didn't think so! Hey, I have a good idea! How about the energy you're wasting on critiquing shoes you will never amount to, instead use it to TRY to create something better. BINGO!
