Serge Ibaka adidas Crazy Fast Sneakers Pay Homage to Dikembe Mutombo

More NBA players are wearing sneakers outside of their uniform colorway, and Oklahoma City shot-blocking phenom Serge Ibaka is taking that trend to the extreme with his new adidas Crazy Fast shoes.

The vivid red, yellow, green and black colorway was designed to pay homage to Ibaka's Congo roots and to express his admiration and respect for his Congolese countryman and former NBA player, Dikembe Mutombo. Ibaka's Crazy Fast shoes feature the heritage African mud print first seen on the adidas Mutombo (relaunching Fall 2013).

Ibaka idolized Mutombo for his shot-blocking ability. With a career total of 3,256, Mt. Mutombo is the NBA's 2nd all-time leading shot blocker. Ibaka recorded 241 blocks last season (3.7 per game) and has averaged 3.8 this month. If he has a long NBA career, he can easily become one of the top five shot blockers of all time, and possibly even overtake his hero.

The Ibaka Crazy Fast is available for $100.
