If you can recall, there was a small dilemma when it came to trying to associate this upcoming pair of adidas Mutombos with a particular team. The Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks, were the two main teams that were seemingly neck and neck in claiming this colorway for themselves. Well, it looks like we can finally inform all of you sneakerheads that these are indeed the “Knicks” adidas Mutombos. Seeing as how the 76ers color scheme was completely different back when Mutombo was on the roster, we think it’s safe to say that the Knickerbockers are most definitely the muse for these kicks. Despite only being with the Knicks for the 2003-04 season, that brief stint was obviously more than enough to make the creative minds over at adidas pay tribute. With two colorways already on the books, it will be up to this NYK-inspired pair to keep the Mutombo momentum going. While these are already popping up at European retailers, we can only assume that a release here in the states will be taking place fairly soon. Will these be a sure-fire cop for you? Or will you reject these and give them the finger?
