adidas and Donovan Mitchell just announced the second shoe from the Utah Jazz star’s signature line: the D.O.N. Issue #2.
The sequel sneaker features a BOUNCE midsole, which provides comfort and stability on the court. It also has a breathable mesh upper and a webbed lacing system.
The beautiful thing about the D.O.N. Issue #2 is the creative collaborations with Marvel and Crayola, which incorporates Mitchell’s admiration for Marvel superheroes and his creative nature and dedication to youth development into the shoes.
D.O.N. Issue #2 x Marvel
The first drop delivers an electric green “Spidey-Sense” colorway of D.O.N. Issue #2, fusing Marvel’s Spider-Man and Mitchell’s trust in his instincts to guide his actions towards positive outcomes on and off the courts. Just as the friendly neighborhood superhero protects his community, Mitchell hopes to connect with his fans and give back in a meaningful way.
The “Spidey-Sense” D.O.N. Issue #2 presents a glow-in-the-dark silhouette with Glory Mint, Signal Green and Solar Red hues. A Spider-Man graphic inside the tongue, “Spidey-Sense!” inscription on the lacing and “BOOM” and “POW” text on the outsole complete the comic book-like feel of the partnership.
D.O.N. Issue #2 x Crayola
adidas Basketball and Crayola team up for the first time to offer a D.O.N. Issue #2 pack representing Mitchell’s desire to inspire others to express themselves on the court, in the classroom and in life. The partnership hits close to home, with Mitchell’s mother, an elementary school teacher, playing a major role in influencing his appreciation for education and encouraging him to use his imagination and voice.
The Crayola pack features three solid, bright colored sneaker sets in iconic Crayola colors: Sky Blue, Banana Mania and Jazzberry Jam, a nod to Mitchell’s team. The inscription “Free to Create” on the lacing and “Crayola” written on the outsole prompts athletes to keep expressing their creativity.
The adidas D.O.N. Issue #2 x Marvel “Spidey-Sense” will be released locally on August 29 for P5,500. You can expect the Crayola pack, on the other hand, to drop sometime in October.
