    First look at Donovan Mitchell’s signature shoe, the Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1. He selected aspiring sports writers from his high school to reveal his first shoe.

    D.O.N. stands for Determination Over Negativity. Issue #1 pulls inspiration from classic comic books and Donovan’s nickname, Spida.

    I wonder if the Dame line (from the 6 onwards) will slowly move into upper tier or if it'll keep using bounce instead of boost

    I like this silhouette so far, looks like a more original pro bounce

    I kinda like the logo. Is it just a spider? Because I don’t see any resemblance of his initial(s) or number

    Basketball at the center

    Then maybe the top is an upside-down M and the bottom is a sideways D? A bit of a stretch though

    Very interesting. Happy for Mitchell. I just wonder how adidas will market this. As stated by fabripav this could move Lillard up and allow Mitchell’s sig to be more of an entry level/cheaper price point. It’ll be interesting to see how long before adidas gives the details about the sneaker (price tech etc.). For some odd reason they tend to push a product for a few days then it disappears and is out of sight for consumers/interest lost. Latest casualty might be the N3XT L3VEL. In my mind this is fairly revolutionary for the brand so I would beef up marketing ads commercials etc to get this new product in front of consumers but that’s not really been the case. Such a weird business/marketing model adidas has.

    I like 90% of this shoe. But that back tab is weird. Also looks like the back barely even touches the back of the heel.

    Why would they beef up the outside of the heel so much and not the inside? Gives the inside of the shoe no padding

    I'm glad it's not a lazy logo of initials and/or number.. that's why Jordan, Lebron and Shaq logos are my favourites.. if I had a signature logo it would be me sitting on a toilet..

    they got no choice, jerseys including socks are sponsored by nike

    that's why harden and curry just fold the top so that the swoosh doesn't show

    Giannis I think is on or after All-Star. At the very latest is next season. But he already teased a bit of it.
