When Grambling State extended its partnership with Adidas, which was renewed earlier this month, the school also got into the sneaker game, too.
Ahead of the renewed five-year partnership that started on July 1, Grambling debuted the officially licensed Grambling State University x D.O.N. Issue No. 4 exclusive colorway.
Details for the collaborative release include Grambling State University’s logo on the tongue, a striped sock liner, and a black and gold upper honoring the GSU Tigers.
The shoes first were first debuted at the 2023 NBA All-Star Game and worn by Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Donovan Mitchell.
“It’s really exciting to be a part of this moment with Adidas and Grambling State University,” Mitchell said. “I’m proud to be giving back to the community, both with Adidas extending its partnership and with the release of the D.O.N. Issue No. 4 exclusive colorway.”
Grambling State fans and HBCU sneakerheads can have a chance to now wear the heat.
Grambling State and Adidas have collaborated with the newest drops of the Adidas first edition of the Grambling State Ultra Boost 1.0 sports shoe.
The shoes officially released on Saturday, and can be purchased at the Adidas website for a retail price of $200.
