Along with his lucrative NBA contract, Donovan Mitchell has an endorsement deal with mega shoe brand Adidas. He has been with the three stripes ever since his rookie year and he already has three signature shoes with Adidas!
“When my agents and I were talking about the sneaker deal, I thought it was going to be the typical agent meeting where they promise you a shoe deal and you’re like, Alright, I’m not that good, this is for guys who are big-time,” says Mitchell on his interview with Slam Online. “So when it happened, I was like, Wow, you were right, it did happen! It was a no-brainer going with adidas and I’m blessed and happy to be in this position and hope to keep representing them for a long period of time.”
His signature shoes are named D.O.N. Issue #1, #2, and #3. He also partners with different brands and intellectual properties to release limited colorways for his shoes.
