Coming off his five-year contract extension with the Jazz, NBA All-Star Donovan Mitchell and BODYARMOR Sports Drink have teamed up for a new collaboration with Adidas to create a limited-edition version of Donovan’s D.O.N. Issue #2 sneaker.
The Adidas D.O.N. Issue #2 x BODYARMOR features a colorway inspired by Mitchell’s favorite BODYARMOR Sports Drink flavor, Tropical Punch. Its silhouette represents Donovan Mitchell’s ‘Determination Over Negativity’ mindset as he continues to aim to be a vehicle for positive disruption on the court and in communities across the country.
As part of the second version of Donovan’s signature footwear line with adidas, the D.O.N. Issue #2 features a returned technology of a BOUNCE midsole, which aims to arm users with enhanced comfort and stability. New to the model is a higher heel counter, while the higher height gives the shoe even more containment and support. The upper features a soft and breathable mesh that provides improved lateral support through a webbed lacing system.
The adidas D.O.N. Issue #2 x BODYARMOR shoes will not be available for sale, rather only 100 pairs of shoes have been created, which fans and consumers nationwide will be available to win via giveaways on BODYARMOR social platforms and more.
The shoe comes following Mitchell’s two-year partnership with BODYARMOR Sports Drink. He was first announced as an athlete partner and investor in the brand in January 2018.
