D.O.N. Issue #2

Mitchell, an Adidas athlete received his first signature shoe in July of 2019. Since then, the brand has released a new colorway seemingly monthly since the initial red and blue D.O.N. Issue #1 debuted.

In April, the All-Star guard gave fans their first official preview of his second signature shoe, the D.O.N. Issue #2. Mitchell teamed with the NBA2k video game series to debut the shoes on the game’s platform.

In December, photos of the D.O.N Issue #2 edition were leaked on Weibo. Adidas did not originally confirm the second generation shoes. Though leaked photos were a near-identical match to the video game rendering.

August was the original release date for the shoes. Then the date moved to mid-July. Now, it appears Jazz fans can purchase the D.O.N Issue #2 over the July 4th holiday.
