Are You Excited For The adidas Mutombo Re-Release To Drop Later This Summer?

Almost three months ago, we told you about how adidas was planning on re-releasing the adidas MutomboDikembe Mutombo‘s signature sneaker—this summer. But the summer started a couple weeks back, and we still haven’t seen any sign of the Mutombo out there in the world. Sure, we’ve seen a few celebrities wearing them here and there. But we haven’t seen them in stores, and we haven’t seen any regular folks walking around in them yet. And unfortunately, it’s going to be a little while longer before we do.

When adidas said “summer,” they apparently didn’t mean the beginning of the summer. Because earlier this week, they announced that they will be re-releasing the adidas Mutombo on—drumroll, please!—August 24. Yep, you read that right. August 24. That means you still have to wait more than a month for them to come out. adidas will start by re-releasing the Mutombo in the original “Home” colorway that features white, red, yellow, and emerald scattered throughout the upper part of the sneaker. But they’re also going to re-release a handful of other Mutombo colorways, including a white/blue colorway and a new “Georgetown” colorway that’s never been released before. It’s unclear when those colorways will drop. But we would expect them to be released shortly after the “Home” colorway does.

Even though you’re going to have to wait a little bit longer for these Mutombo sneakers to be released, are you looking forward to them coming out in August? You won’t get to wear them much during the summer. But then again, they’re not necessarily just a summer sneaker. We think that these will be great for the fall and are anticipating them being released through select adidas retailers next month. They’ll go on sale for $105 initially.

So will you be buying a pair of Dikembe Mutombo’s signature sneakers when they hit stores? Leave us a comment below and let us know.
