On-Foot With the A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 1
Last week we received a leaked look at another potential collaboration between retailer A Ma Maniére and Jordan Brand, this time on the Air Jordan 1. Following speculation as to whether this colab was real, we’ve now been blessed with an on-foot look from sneakersphere insider yankeekicks! While official word is still yet to come from either brand, this on-foot provides a fairly solid hint for what is actually on the way.
The approach that A Ma Maniére have taken on Air Jordan 1 is reminiscent of their Air Jordan 3 from earlier this year, opting for a similar mix of both luxury and vintage. The upper has been decked out in a white suede that’s complemented by the pre-yellowed midsole giving off an aged feel. Similar to the AJ3 the luxury element comes in the form of a quilted liner. The highlight of this iteration has to be the reptilian materials that reach the Swoosh and collar. Specialised branding and details have made it onto the tongue, insole and on the inside of the ankle flap.
Is the A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 1 actually going to release? According to yankeekicks, the retailer’s next venture with Jordan Brand is set to touch down this year, but no confirmation on when. We’ll keep you updated as soon as any of the brands announce the link up.
