Your friendly neighborhood Spida finally got his first signature shoe with the adidas D.O.N. Issue #1.
The comic book centric sneaker plays off of Donovan Mitchell’s name. The D.O.N. initials stand for determination over negativity, a nod to the adversity that superheroes and non-heroes face every day.
In terms of technology, the shoe utilizes Bounce cushioning for a comfortable ride, and features a propulsion clip on the side for lateral support. A wider outsole further provides stability when landing after any of Mitchell’s acrobatic dunks.
Additional design details include spider-web stitching on the toe box and tongue, and a custom coding that represents the addresses of stops on Mitchell’s journey to NBA superstar like Brewster Academy in New Hampshire (“80/A:DR [WBR] NH”) and the University of Louisville (“1.AP.LV:KY”), among others.
A handful colorways play off the Spider-Man theme including the Iron Spider suit, Venom suit, as well as the red and blue Amazing Spider-man suit.
