Centred around Beatrix Kiddo (a.k.a. The Bride)’s infamous Death List Five, the pack uses a blend of premium materials, fabrics and colours to represent intrinsic aspects of the characters on the hit list, naming the shoes after their Deadly Viper Assassination Squad codenames.
Modeled after swordswoman Elle Driver, the California Mountain Snake Gel Epirus employs a span of aesthetic elements that hint to the hospital scene towards the beginning of the film. A white leather base with special black contour line detailing shouts to Elle Driver’s nurses outfit and trench coat, while contrasting black mesh panels and green leather snakeskin Asics stripes give the shoe a sinister feel. A red cross on the heel signals to the hospital scene, while red speckles on the midsole mimic blood splatters.
Embodying Budd; Bill’s Brother; the Sidewinder GT Cool makes reference to Budd’s attire - a Hawaiian shirt and jeans - with an upper built of plush print material and dark denim overlays. Periwinkle blue laces and eye stays, and black snakeskin leather ASICS stripes, tie in the character and theme.
The Asics x Extra Butter ‘Death List 5’ "California Mountain Snake" Gel Epirus and the “Sidewinder” GT Cool are coming soon to Shelflife.
