That Mutombo Game (Yes, We’re Playing It Again)
Remember when Old Spice created the “Dikembe Mutombo’s 4½ Weeks to Save the World” Mutombo game, that hilarious 8-bit video game where Dikembe Mutombo is the action hero whose adventures consisted of weekly missions based on current events to save the world from destruction? Although it was originally released on December 21st (which according to the Mayan calendar was the end of the world), we decided to bring it back again, to bide our time while we await the release of the adidas Originals Mutombo which drops this Saturday 8.24.13 10AM at UBIQlife.com and UBIQ Walnut.
Yes the Mutombo game is relatively simple, as you fight flying bananas and ask talking bears with sweaters for advice — but the real dilemma is will we get any work done the rest of the day? *Finger wave*

adidas Originals by mastermind JAPAN
Luxury streetwear label mastermind JAPAN has partnered up with adidas Originals Consortium for one final project before they close up shop after 15 years in the game. The capsule collection, ‘BEST of adidas Originals’, footwear models chosen by MMJ, reworked with their signature jet-black palette and skull and bones logo.
mastermind JAPAN tackles classic adidas footwear – models much-loved by the Japanese market – such as popular running style ZX500, the basketball favorite Rivalry Hi, and training shoes Gazelle and Promodel CF. The collection is unified with the repetition of materials used such as soft leather, laser cut leather, pigskin suede, flocked reflective logos and bone lace jewels, though these elements are executed slightly different for each shoe model. Every pair is encased in a special black box.
The adidas x mastermind Japan collection will be available 10AM Wednesday 7.3.13 at UBIQ Walnut.
