Donovan Mitchell and adidas are once again coming together for an out of the box colorway on their adidas DON Issue 2 silhouette. Recent inclusions to the DON 2 lineup included Crayola and Spiderman inspired palettes, this time however it hits closer to home for Mitchell with this latest homage honoring his beloved college team the Louisville Cardinals.
The construction is executed using a plethora of materials such as mesh, leather, plastic, and rubber, the upper however is predominately comprised of a “Core Black” and team “Power Red” mesh. Zig-zag overlays feature on either side of the medial, one in a black and red mesh, the other a black solid leather that leads into the rippled solid heal support. Underfoot is an all-black midsole unit with black red fleck medial shank, where the rubber meets the road sits a rubber semi-translucent ice-blue outer sole that reveals the NCAA Louisville Cardinals mascot. The finer details complete the design, spidey logo, and a “Louisville First” on the tongue, “The Ville” overlay on the heel, and a D.O.N stamped below.
