Donovan Mitchell has recently unveiled his first signature sneaker with Adidas. After having an impressive rookie year, the Adidas rep will be the face of the D.O.N Issue #1 Model releasing in 2019.
With D.O.N standing for Determination Over Negativity, and adopting it’s ‘Issue #1‘ from comic book traditions,the first D.O.N. sneaker features the colors of everyone’s favorite neighborhood Spider-Man, a newly designed signature spider logo on its tongue, and a bold medial Three Stripe hit. Aiding in this model’s on-court function is an extra-thick ankle collar for support, exposed lace wire for lockdown, and a wide-designed sole unit for extra durability.
To help roll-out his fist signature sneaker, Donovan Mitchell called up two aspiring sports writers, his Alma Mater, Rory Ashmeade and Blaise New, to conduct an interview. They asked Spida about his first signature sneaker, what he planned to achieve in the NBA and more.
Answering a question from Rory Ashmeade about what kind of message he wanted to send with the D.O.N Issue #1, Donovan Mitchell was quoted saying:
“My message with this shoe is that it’s for kids not only your age, but younger than you guys, older than you guys, just [for those who] believe that they can do anything,” Mitchell said. “You don’t have to be the number one recruit, you don’t even have to be a basketball player. I just want this to send a positive message to make kids feel inspired that they can be what they want to be.”
The D.O.N Issue #1 is expected to release in 2019, check out some pictures of the D.O.N Issue #1 below. More information about sneaker will be made available soon.
