Bruce Lee was a Hong Kong American martial artist and filmmaker. The legend of his immense talent looms even larger because he tragically passed away at age 32.
Bruce Lee influences a series of sneakers beginning mid 2000s. Uma Thurman's appearance in Kill Bill Vol. 1 creates interest in Lee's original Onitsuka Tiger lowtops from Game of Death.
He crosses over to modern performance footwear with 'Bruce Lee' Nike Zoom Kobe 5. Several more Bruce Lee inspired sneakers follow into the 2010s.
