Former Louisville Cardinals Donovan Mitchell and Angel McCoughtry put on for The Ville with the adidas. D.O.N. Issue #2 “A Shoe for Change.”
The adidas D.O.N. Issue #2 colorway goes deeper than the red and black combination for both on-court stars as the latest colorway from adidas is directed to building change in the Louisville community.
Proceeds from “A Shoe for Change” will benefit the Woodford R. Porter Scholarship Program, the Muhammad Ali Scholar Program, the Health and Social Justice Scholars Program, and an expanded emergency fund to help increase retention rates of the impacted students, allowing them to focus on their studies and work toward graduation.
Members of the University of Louisville men’s and women’s basketball teams will wear the limited-edition colorway in upcoming games. Both Donovan and Angel will send video messages to the teams explaining the significance of the new shoe and why supporting these academic initiatives and scholarships is so important to them.
The adidas D.O.N. Issue #2 “A Shoe for Change” retails for $100 and is available now at adidas.com. Take a look at the pair below and read what Spida and Angel had to say about the initiative.

With my mom being a teacher and based on the values she taught me from a young age, I have always understood the importance of education, which is why adidas and I worked with my alma mater, the University of Louisville, to ensure proceeds from the Louisville colorway of D.O.N. Issue #2 would fund scholarships to support Black students.”
I am passionate about giving back so having the opportunity to support the Louisville community, a place that helped shape me, is really special and it’s great my friend and champion for equality, Angel McCoughtry, is supporting these efforts as well.”
“Donovan Mitchell is a special talent on the basketball court and an even better person off the court. I’m proud to call him a friend and fellow University of Louisville alum. I’m excited to work with him and adidas to support the Louisville community that means so much to me. I’m always proud to wear Donovan’s shoe on-court and I know these scholarship funds generated by the shoe’s sales will leave a lasting impact on the Black students who receive them and the greater Louisville community.”
