“Fresh” doesn’t always have to mean “new,” as is the case with the first colorway of the adidas Mutombo to drop in 2014. The clean white and blue color scheme is actually borrowed from the original run of the sneaker some 22 years ago. Back then, Mutombo was a young defensive phenom playing for the Denver Nuggets; these kicks were designed to compliment their blue-based jerseys with the rainbow across the chest. Though those uniforms are now considered relics, these matching Mutombo’s feel as fresh as ever.
The adidas Mutombo OG white/running blue will be available on Saturday, March 1 in-store at BAIT Diamond Bar and online at BAITme.com.
