Adidas Mutombo Re-Release

You may have recently seen Dikembe Mutumbo blocking everything from crumpled pieces of paper to kids’ cereal in grocery stores for Geico. The former NBA star has been all over the airwaves with that commercial, and thus his popularity has been rekindled. With that, Adidas has decided to re-release the legendary center’s signature Adidas Mutombo model. The sneaker celebrates its twenty year anniversary and has remained unseen to the public for quite some time. So it’s only right that Adidas ressurects these classics from the vault.

Inspired by the seven footer’s native land of the Congo, the sneaker employs a combination of leather, nubuck, and canvas featuring his #55 on the side of the shoe. The iconic Mutombo shield is embossed on the tongue, and the overlay of the sneaker features a weave pattern that makes this sneaker pop! These gems are slated for a July release, so make sure you’re checking for ’em.
