Adidas is also launching something special for the holiday, which traditionally takes place from October 31st-November 2nd

One of the sneakers that will be part of the collection is the adidas D.O.N. Issue #2. The adidas D.O.N. Issue #2 Day of The Dead comes covered in an off-white hue with all over the mesh and synthetic constructed upper along with colorful, traditional artwork associated with the holiday. The sugar skull on the toe, a spider web on the medial side panel, and pops of green on the laces and tongue branding go perfectly with the tri-colored three stripes on the medial midsoles, and a translucent outsole with more graphics.

The Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere.

The multi-day holiday involves family and friends gathering to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and helping support their spiritual journey. In Mexican culture, death is viewed as a natural part of the human cycle. Mexicans view it not as a day of sadness but as a day of celebration because their loved ones awaken and celebrate with them.
