Departing from the standard leather, suede and cloth composition, the adidas Mutombo “Patent Leather” shines for the first time. Draped in Hoyas hues and the mentioned material, this pair places said styling all over the upper in mostly navy blocking. Grey graces the lining and midsole on this makeup, with white residing on the sole. This new colorway of the adidas Mutombo is available now overseas at Cali Roots.
Initially released in 1993, the adidas Mutombo was the first shoe for the big man Dikembe Mutombo. The shoe came and went in the early 90's, but for a long time was a highly sought after shoe by many vintage sneaker collectors. At last, the adidas Mutombo will re-release in 2013, 20 years after its initial release. If you would like to know when the Mutombos arrive at shopnicekicks.com, sign up for the Launch List.
