Twenty years after the release of Dikembe Mutombo's second signature shoe, and twenty years after he wore that shoe as his 8th seeded Denver Nuggets defeated the #1 Seattle Supersonics in a historic NBA Playoffs series, the adidas Mutombo 2 is back.
Featuring a sleeker, more sophisticated design than Mt. Mutombo's first iconic shoe with adidas, the Mutombo 2 still includes the African tribal print, but in understated embossed paneling. Further design details include large "Mutombo" text on the oversized tongue, a unique take on the adidas Three Stripes, and Dikembe's #55 shield logo at the heel.
The Mutombo 2 returns to select adidas Originals retailers and adidasoriginals.com on May 10th, 2014 for $110. Check out the official images of the Mutombo 2 from adidas below, along with a couple shots of Dikembe wearing the OG's in the legendary 1994 NBA Playoffs series.
