As a special tribute to Quentin Tarantino’s incredible slasher action thriller, Death Proof, District Customs designs two pairs of Nike LeBron 9 “Death Proof” Custom.
He picked the away Nike LeBron 9 Elite as the base for Stuntman Mike’s charger because he felt like the carbon fiber and the more bulky upper of the elite fit the body of the charger. The regular Nike LeBron 9 was finished with a pearlized/candy yellow gloss coat and a red interior with yellow accents again to match Kim’s Mustang. The elite was finished with a matte black upper and blood splatter all over the inner toe panels, and Stuntman Mike’s lightning-skull hood logo. To top it off he went to his local engraver and got a hangtag based off of the duck hood ornament on Mike’s charger and custom engraved labels for the box.
Both Nike LeBron 9 “Death Proof” Custom comes with a special custom wooden box that was handbuilt with precision by master craftsman, Chris Bransome. He painted the exterior and the “hood” lids to match those of the 1972 Ford Mustang Grande driven by the foxy and bad ass, Kim, and the 1960 Dodge Charger driven by the psychopathic, Stuntman Mike.
The interior of the box was upholstered with natural, custom painted leather and leather piping by a local family upholsterer which perfectly resembled the leather interiors of the two beautiful muscle cars from the movie! Also under the charger hood lid are two “roll bars” to represent the roll cage in Stuntman Mike’s car.
