While the Black/White/Red version of the iconic adidas Mutombo has certainly been the most historically beloved, yet another original colorway of the hightop signature worn by Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo is making its way to retailers.
As we found during our interview with adidas Originals Design Director Brian Foresta, whether it's the warrior-inspired shield atop the tongue, the African raffia textile inspired graphic along the midfoot or the shoe's timeless clean toe, the Mutombo model has aged well some twenty years later.
Check out detailed photos below of the latest colorway to drop, and also check out our interview with the man himself from earlier this past fall.
The OG White/Blue/Black Mutombo is available now for $105 over at Sneaker Politics, and will be released widely at adidas Originals accounts on March 1st.
