Dikembe Mutombo’s Best Performances in the adidas Mutombo

Previous / Next 1 of 6


For the first time in 20 years, the adidas Mutombo makes its return to retail shelves today. This classic adidas Originals model debuted in 1993 and led to a full line of Mutombo signature models. The towering center known for his humiliating blocks and finger-wagging taunts had plenty of support in this high-top model, which featured a vibrant cloth pattern inspired by Mutombo’s African heritage. Priced at $105, this classic style is now available. To celebrate the re-release, Sneaker Report looks back on some of Dikembe’s best moments in the original ’93 version. As you’ll notice, his colorway of choice was the white/blue variation, which is set for release later this year.
