Since arriving in the NBA from the University of Louisville, Donovan Mitchell has become one of the most fun players to watch – both on and off the court. On the latter note, his social media presence (@spidadmitchell) is full of shoutouts to fellow athletes (professional or otherwise), #MillenialVibes and a general enthusiasm for the game of basketball. On the hardwood, the 23-year-old guard has been vital to the success of the Utah Jazz, the muse for his latest adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 sneaker.
Currently standing in fourth place in the Western Conference (though the NBA season has been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic), the Salt Lake City-based franchise recently had a five-game win streak interrupted by the Toronto Raptors. During this loss, Mitchell (who has since tested positive for Coronavirus) was wearing a vibrant pink version of his Three Stripes signature sneaker to match the Jazz’s equally animated “City” jerseys. Soon, the rose-colored option will have a navy/green/gold counterpart inspired by the team’s secondary colors. Midnight blue sets the stage for brighter accents throughout the entire silhouette. As his Twitter handle and debut D.O.N. Issue #1 suggest, spider-related details across the midfoot and tongue revel in “Team College Gold;” profile tabs forgo their “ISSUE #1” text in exchange for a reminder to “BE HUMBLE.” Elsewhere, the Jazz-inspired color scheme continues as rich “Collegiate Green” animates the collar lining and haphazard patterns covering much of the sidewalls. Medial 3-Stripes, like branding on the tongue, also opt for yellow flair, but multidirectional herringbone outsoles deviate from the “Icon” palette for a gum-colored arrangement.
