Instagram just underwent a significant overhaul and its “Fast beautiful photo sharing” tagline has never been more true.  You’ve gotta believe that a company Facebook valued at over a billion dollars did their due diligence and worked through tons of user feedback before they implemented the elegant new design, and it seems that adidas is doing something similar utilizing that very service.  Three Stripes’ Instagram account posted an image with a note that “Basketball players wore these in the early 90’s,” but one need look no longer than the ’55’s and ‘Mount Mutombo’ on the tongue tag to realize it was actually just one guy.  The adidas Mutombo released during the 1992-93 season and brought together one of the NBA’s most unique personalities with the explosion of hip-hop culture and their shared African influences.  Their pattern-heavy upper is the kind of thing we’ve seen from Jeremy Scott’s ObyO capsule as well as 2010’s ‘Bin 23’ Air Jordan VII; should adidas add another to that list of tribal throwbacks with a Mutombo retro release?  Let us know on the other side and stick with Sneaker News for confirmation and a possible release date.
