Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 Performance Review

I’ve got this Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 for a long time and after many tests and based on quite a number of notes, I finally opened my computer and wrote down this article. Then let’s see…

Appearance is important. And I know like the majority, most of us look upon a shoe’s appearance as the first considered factor when buying shoes. But after all, this is a constant occurrence in human nature. Fortunately, this Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 has quite a outstanding appearance. To tell the truth, when I first saw this spider man color scheme, I fell in love and I bought it then and there. I felt that the red and blue colorway is simply very eye-catching in this hot summer day but not tacky at all. But after all, different people has different views and for this part, I don’t remark any more. 

When I first wore the shoe, I didn’t like tying the laces for the wrapping was really nice and very tight. But I still tied the laces when I was in combats. I also found that the heel part locks my feet very well and I never run into any slipping problems. In addition, the fore part of the shoe is not so wide and can fit many people, which is not like the Irving series I’ve experienced; there isn’t extra room in the forefoot to boot.

The pattern in the outsole is still the classic herringbone pattern. You will feel that the shoe bites the ground tightly. I wore the Kobe NXT 360 to play on the wooden floor, but it turned out to be very common whereas this one gave me a kind of bright feeling. To summarize, the grip of this shoe is absolutely on top of the sneaker market. And they performs even much better in the outfield where there is a lot of dust and gravels. The solid outsole rubber of the shoe is praised by many testers simply because it barely attracts dust.

Anti-rollover is always the biggest highlight of this pair. The oversized outsole basically eliminates the possibility of rollover, and I was overwhelmed by the safety of the outsole when I went to the store to try it on. I got injured in a match not long ago. Tripping in the circumstance, I dare not do any high-intensive training, however, I just feel quite secured in this shoe.

Personally, I do not require too much of cushioning and I do not like wearing super soft shoes. However, this cushioning is fine for me. It is not dragging when breaking through. When I made landing movements, it eases the shock brought by my weight. But this still requires some more tests because I haven’t experienced it so much. After all, it is a newly copped one and I am not so willing to shorten its life.

Durability is always highly phrased by a number of buyers and reviewers. On rough courts, the sole performs better than on  cement ground but worse than on plastic ground. The shoe is wore usually in outer side of the heel though the picture below can not be seen any wear and tear. Nevertheless, it should not fail you.


Some said the most thrilling part is that the shoe is worth the money; after all, it is a famous brand sneaker with such nice overall performance. On stores, when I was considering which one to choose, it is the shoe’s  “sincerity” and nice appearance that persuade me into buying it. What is fortunate is that after these days’ accompanying, it turn out to be a reliable model; every time there are matches, I resolutely chose it as my comrade. To learn more about this shoe, you can also have a try by yourself.

Unboxing: Marvel x Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1

2019 is a good year for many famous brands to release the signature shoes.

For celebrating to release the 1st signature shoes Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 of Donovan Mitchell, the shoe surgeon uses the snake skin texture to make the special version of SPIDEMAN. The vamp, blue shoe tongue and red parts are made of the snake skin texture.

Shoe Box is jointly signed with Marvel. It looks cool and special. It’s printed with the Marvel cartoon figures. I wonder if Adidas will make the exclusive logo on the shoebox for Mitchell in the future.

Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 has some features. Firstly, the vamp has a double layer lacing design to fit the foot. It’s a little similar with the forefoot of PG3. It’s using shoelaces to control the tightness. And there is a piece of stiff TPU under it.

Second, the outsole of Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 is very wide. It looks very stable. Actually, the upper is similar to Marquee Boost. It has a layer of thicken upper with the decoration of white line.

The inner side of upper is also filled with sponge to fix the heel.

The logo on shoe tongues is jointed with the shape of spider and basketball. That’s creative and special.
The three lines on the inner size is similar to N3xt l3v3l.

And the inner side design of shoe tongue looks like spider web. It’s to cut the thick shoe tongue into a cobweb division. And it’s also soft.

The insole of Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 uses Bounce technology. For this technology, I almost can confirm that the performance of Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 should be above average.

Overall, Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 has the characteristics of signatures and it also have some designs on the details. I’m satisfied at its design. And the price is also very cheap comparing with others.

With such low price, I think most of people will choose Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 if comparing with Lillard 5 and Harden BE. As they use the same technology and workmanship, but Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 is jointly signed with Marvel, the appearance of ‘SPIDEMAN’ is really cool and the price is lower.
I think that Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 has high cost performance. You can pay attention on it. We’ll test it and show you the performance review of Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 asap.
