adidasMutombo Dikembe Mutombos Best Performances in the adidas Mutombo

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.
