Next up in the Death List 5 collection by Extra Butter and ASICS is the "Sidewinder" GT-Cool. Extra Butter's five shoe collection inspired by characters from Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill gets the honor of having the very first collab version of the GT-Cool, with this pair inspired by Budd's Hawaiian shirt and jeans.
Via Extra Butter:
“Sidewinder” features some dirty, dark denim, with Hawaiian print underlays that serve as a nice contrast, and throwback to the kind of stuff you find out west on a road trip through vintage thrift shops. A contrast in materials was another way for us to communicate something we loved about Sidewinder’s character – a man conflicted. Loyal as a cold-blooded killer to the aching heart of his dear brother, yet understanding of one woman’s insatiable thirst for revenge. Periwinkle colored laces were chosen, for those observant enough to recall the rest of Sidewinder’s memorable scenes, and of course deadly, venom snakeskin striping again appear matching the rest of the DL5 collection!
The "Sidewinder" ASICS GT-Cool will release exclusively at both Extra Butter retail locations on January 4th and online January 6th.
