The sneaker pays tribute to Mitchell’s nickname via four Marvel Super-Heroes colorways and supports Mitchell’s vertical lead and speed.
The line was named D.O.N. Issue #1 for Mitchell’s mantra, “Determination Over Negativity” which aligns with Marvel’s Super-Heroes’ journeys.
“’Determination Over Negativity’ is a belief that anything is possible no matter who you are or where you come from,” says Mitchell. “I wanted this sneaker to be a symbol of that–for the kid who believes they can do anything.”
The D.O.N. Issue #1 features a propulsion clip for lateral support and a wider outsole for landing stability. It also features Bounce cushioning for comfortability and a wavy tread pattern, to symbolize Mitchell’s unconventional route to the NBA. The shoe also includes spider-web stitching on the toe box and tongue, as well as custom coding symbolizing milestone addresses for Mitchell,
The D.O.N. Issue #1, which retails for $100, will be available on Adidas.com on July 1, and at Adidas retail stores globally on July 5.
