Nike borrowed the alias, Black Mamba, from one of its headlining athletes, Kobe Bryant, and used it as inspiration for a two-sneaker package. The pack exhibits two retro style basketball shoes Big Nike High and Auto Flight High. The base-black Big Nike High is splattered with blood stains and thereby congruent with any Tarantino film. As for the Auto Flight High, 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.
