Most sneaker companies see themselves collaborating with athletes and high-profile sports afficiandos in order to create new and innovative shoe designs, but the running shoe designers at ASICS looked to the cinema for their inspiration and created these stunning Kill Bill-inspired kicks.

When most people think of Quentin Tarantino's kung fu film Kill Bill, lead actress Uma Therman's unforgettable yellow and black outfit comes to mind. That's probably why ASICS choose these easily indentifiable colors to define these crafty, Kill Bill-inspired shoes.

Even featuring a finely detailed red splatter on the back of the heels, these Kill Bill kicks are items for intense fans and supporters of Tarantino's iconic cinmatic style. Accented with black leather and a lighter shade of yellow on ASICS' signature logo, these Kill Bill-themed shoes are simply to die for. Stats for Vibrant Movie-Themed Shoes Trending: Older & Warm
