adidas Originals dug deep in the brand’s archives to bring back the adidas Mutombo, the original signature shoe of famous NBA shot-blocker Dikembe Mutombo. To reacquaint fans and potential buyers with who Deke is, adidas created the “House of Mutombo” video series which is an illustrated and animated history of the basketball legend, as narrated by the big man himself. The first installment originates in the Congo and follows Dikembe’s early steps in his coming to American story.

The adidas Mutombo will hit store shelves on August 24.
