ADIDAS D.O.N ISSUE #3 LEAKED

Its only been a few months since the D.O.N Issue 2s were officially released. However, recent leaks confirmed the final designs of the D.O.N Issue 3s and its release schedule. While we will have to wait a full life cycle of the D.O.N Issue 2 to get official looks, the leaked images allows for a tech-spec breakdown of the sneaker.

Upper

The D.O.N Issue series continues to keep a low-cut silhouette to accommodate Donovan Mitchell’s quick cuts and movements. The base of the upper will be a mesh material with fuse overlays around the lacing and toe area. It looks to feature a small mid-foot band along the tongue for extra lockdown. Much like the Issue 2, the lacing emphasises on lockdown around the backside. The TPU piece located in the middle, warps below the ankle to ensure additional lockdown when the laces are tightened.

Midsole Cushion Set-up

It looks like the D.O.N Issue 3 will continue to implement Bounce foam. Unlike the BYW style construction from the Issue 2, the Issue 3s will go back to a solid full-length form. A TPU plate that wraps around the lateral side is added, allowing lateral containment and stability of the foot.

Outsole

The outsole pattern is almost identical to the spiderweb-like pattern found on the Issue 2 with minor adjustments being made to facilitate the new midsole shape.

Price and Release Date

Leaks have stated that the D.O.N Issue 3s are expected to release around FW season next year for $110.
