adidas Mutombo – Black/White-Purple – Launching @ BAIT on 10/5!
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Dikembe Mutombo’s original signature sneaker, adidas Originals will be releasing a new colorway inspired by his very first NBA team. The adidas Mutombo’s new black, white, and purple color scheme pays tribute to his tenure with the Denver Nuggets – which happens to be the club he was playing for when the shoe originally dropped during the 1993-94 season. The result is a smooth take on the one-of-a-kind high-top design – and it’ll be available at BAIT on October 5! Hit the jump for details and photos.
The upper is predominantly black, done in a combination of leather, nubuck, and canvas materials. Embossed leather on the heel lends some added texture to the back end. The shoe’s signature traditional African patterns provide contrast, sitting behind the black overlays and wings. Dikembe’s jersey number can be found on two places: embroidered onto the ankle and on the tongue, where it’s incorporated into his iconic shield logo.
The black/white-purple adidas Mutombo will be available on Saturday, October 5 at the BAIT flagship store in Diamond Bar, CA and online at BAITme.com. Follow @BAITmeCom on Twitter and @BAITme on Instagram for more on the shoe as the release date nears.
