Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell is getting his very own adidas signature shoe.
adidas Basketball released a preview of the shoe Thursday. The “D.O.N. Issue #1” is titled to embody Mitchell’s “Determination Over Negativity”.
The company says the shoe’s name also pulls inspiration from classic comic books displaying issue numbers on the front cover as a testament to Mitchell’s nickname, “Spida”.
To celebrate the reveal of D.O.N. Issue #1 adidas and Mitchell selected two aspiring sportswriters and provided them with the opportunity to be the first to interview Mitchell about what this moment means for him and his family.

More details on the D.O.N. Issue #1 will be revealed in 2019.
