We're all ready and waiting for the return of the adidas Mutombo next month, but today we get a look at another upcoming Dikembe Mutombo release from adidas Originals, the obscure Mutombo TR Block. 

This cross-trainer for Mt. Mutombo was designed around the same time as his first signature shoe (as you can probably guess by its similar appearance), but never made it to retail.  adidas Originals is going to change that now, as these are set for a release in early 2014.

The Mutombo TR Block features a similar build to its basketball brethren, but with a lower cut and mid-foot strap.  Here we see it in two colorways of black/red and white/teal.  There is no word yet on an official release date for either colorway, but stick with Sole Collector for all updates on this interesting release.
