Kicks on Cards: The Weekly Collection // Featuring Dikembe Mutombo in the adidas Mutombo
words & images // Zack Schlemmer
Remember those awesome oversized Fleer 'NBA Jam Session' cards? Luckily for us, their bigger size gives us an even better look at Dikembe Mutombo in his first adidas signature shoe, seen here in the white and blue colorway that returns tomorrow, Saturday March 1. You can pick up your pair at adidas Originals retailers tomorrow, but you'll be on your own when it comes to hunting down that matching "rainbow" Nuggets jersey.
We go next to brothers Horace and Harvey Grant, both spotted on this card in mid 90's Nike Basketball heat, with Horace in the Air Flight Maestro '96 and Harvey in the Air Max 2 Strong Hi. Two more Nike classics are included in this week's collection as we spot Gary Payton in the Air Go LWP and Brant Stith in the first shoe with visible Air in only the forefoot: the Air Flight Max.
Michael Jordan closes out the Kicks on Cards collection this week, with a rare shot of His Airness in the Air Jordan XI Low IE.
