A Ma Maniere Postpone the Release of Their Air Jordan 3 CollaborationRelease: 10 June 2021
Atlanta-based boutique A Ma Maniére is partnering with Jordan Brand to deliver an Air Jordan 3 collaboration as part of their ‘Raised By Women’ campaign. Now, after a slight delay and an official release announcement, the crew have announced a postponement to the sought-after drop, amid the verdict of the George Floyd trial.
'This day and this moment cannot be overshadowed by sneakers. We must take the time to take stock of what this moment means for Black people and what we must demand from our criminal and justice system. As we say justice served, more lives are lost. A 15-year old Black girl lost her life yesterday as the verdict was announced. It’s a constant empty feeling for us, our reality is never easy. We need this time to come together and look after one another,' said owner James Whitner.
Debuting during Michael Jordan's 1987-88 NBA season, the Air Jordan 3 remains a force in the Jumpman lineup. Designed by Tinker Hatfield, the silhouette introduced the first mid-cut basketball sneaker for the Jumpman, the hardwood classic proving a hit both on and off the court.
Again manufactured with premium tumbled leather uppers, the A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 3 wraps the silhouette in luxurious grey suede around the toe box, lace collar, and heel. Subtle yellowing on the eyelets and rear emphasise a vintage aesthetic, while the quilted sockliner again present a luxurious palette.
Co-branded embroidered tongue tags emblazon the collaborative nature of the Air Jordan 3, while classic ‘NIKE AIR’ branding appears at the rear to close-out the design.
The A Ma x Maniére Air Jordan 3 and complementary apparel collection will now release on April 28. Priced at $200 for Adult sizing.
