Mutombo 20th Anniversary Kicks Now Available

Adidas re-release the original Dikembe Mutombos.

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: If anyone deserves a re-release it's Mutombo who was one of the all-time great defenders and all-time great humanitarians .


I was a fan of Dikembe Mutombo back when he was one of the twin towers at Georgetown next to Alonzo Mourning. Adidas deciding to release his signature shoe on its 20th anniversary is a great gesture to the player that has probably done more than any other through humanitarian outreach programs. He was a great player and remains a great person.

The Mutombo signature basketball shoe was originally released by adidas during the 1992-93 NBA Season. Traditional African patterns are used throughout the shoe and the iconic shield logo incorporates his jersey number, used throughout his 18 year NBA career. This third addition to the re-launch of the retro Mutombo silhouette, like the first in the series, is an original colorway.
