Share This Page: Mutombo LAUNCH WEEK Are you ready for Mutombo madness? City Gear is working with adidas to party like it's 1993, in preparation for one of the most hyped launch weekends we've seen in recent months. Set to release on August 24, the Mutombo (Q33018) is an adidas Originals re-release of the legendary shoe on its 20th anniversary. The signature shoe was originally released for the 1992-93 NBA season by adidas, and the original design team worked closely with Dikembe Mutomboin an effort to highlight both his trademark defensive style, and exceptional African heritage. The shield logo, which can be found on the tongue, outlines his jersey number, commemorating his 18 year NBA career, and traditional African patterns are used throughout the midsole to reflect a sense of heritage and identity. The shoe features overlay materials comprised of authentic leather, in addition to nubuck and canvas. The shoe also features an African-inspired weave pattern on the overlays and undersole, along with white leather accents on the heel and toe box, and embossed leather on the heel. Red accents compliment the outsole. The 20th Anniversary Edition Mutombo launches this Saturday, August 24, in select City Gear stores, for $105.
