With the prevalence of the color gold in Chinese New Year festivities, it comes as no surprise that Donovan Mitchell's holiday-inspired D.O.N. Issue 5 showcases similar shades to those seen on the recently unveiled "Year Of The Dragon" Harden Vol.7.

If you're a fan of an overflow of carefree gold, then Spida's exclusive shoe edition will cater to your taste as the color is spread across the entire sneaker. Adidas took a slightly more reserved approach with James Harden's YOTD shoes, incorporating golden pin stripes into the yin-yang-esque black and white foundation.

When it comes to performance on the court, both shoes are equally capable, making it a matter of individual choice. If cost is a consideration, it is worth mentioning that the D.O.N. Issue 5 is slightly more budget-friendly, with an estimated price of $120, while the Harden Vol. 7 is expected to be priced at $160.
