adidas Originals Releases The First Episode Of Their “House Of Mutombo” Video Series
Where, oh where did the summer go? Don’t look now, but it’s already August! It seems like just yesterday we were talking about the release of the adidas Mutombo being more than two months away. And now, here we are just a few shorts weeks from the re-release of Dikembe Mutombo‘s classic signature sneaker. The summertime really has flown by thus far, and we’re sure that, before we know it, we’ll be strapping the Mutombos on for the first time during the first week of September. It’s crazy.
Not that we’re really complaining. While we do love the summertime, we also really, really love the adidas Mutombo sneaker. So we’re looking forward to copping a pair of the Mutombos when they drop later this month. But just in case you’re still not convinced that the adidas Mutombo is for you, adidas Originals is putting on the full court press to try and get extra eyes on their latest re-release. And how are they doing it? Well, by releasing a special “House of Mutombo” video series online that documents exactly how Dikembe Mutombo went from an unknown big man in Africa to one of the best players in the NBA. It was a looooooong journey, for sure, but Mutombo made it. And adidas Originals documents “The Journey” in the first of three online videos. You can watch it here:
We don’t expect a video to change the way you look at a sneaker. But after watching this video, do you have a better appreciation for what Dikembe Mutombo was able to do on the basketball court? Are you amazed at how he was able to come so far in such a short amount of time? Do you have a renewed appreciation for the design used on his signature sneakers, which pays homage to his native country? Watch the video and then let us know. And let us know if you will be picking up a pair of Mutombos when they drop. We’ll be sure to post the second and third episodes of “House of Mutombo” when they become available in the coming weeks.
