Kobe x Nike "Black Mamba" Auto Flight High | Big Nike High

The NBA star athlete Kobe Bryant aka "Black Mamba" has linked up with Nike again. This time around in a dope concept. As some of you know, the name Black Mamba comes from the character Uma Thurman played in Quentin Tarantino’s "Kill Bill" (CRAZY movie by the way).

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.
