Since its Air Jordan 3s, the hype surrounding A Ma Maniére’s Nike collabs continues to build with each drop, and rightfully so.
In addition to reimagining classic Nike classics with luxury details, a compelling narrative matched with stunning visuals accompanies each shoe. These details set AMM’s collabs apart from others, and further adds to the shoes’ coveted status.
Last year, the label headed by James Whitner blessed fans with not one but four sneaker collabs, including the Air Jordan 2s, FIFA-approved Air Jordan 4s, Air Jordan 12s, and the Air Ships. AMM fans were well fed, to say the least.
Earlier this year, talks began to swirl regarding the A Ma Maniére’s Air Jordan 5 sneaker collaboration followed by on-foot looks courtesy of Whitner himself. Now, official looks at A Ma Maniére’s Jordan 5 collaboration are here.
A Ma Maniére’s Air Jordan 5 appears in a white “Photon Dust” scheme, complete with blue and silver accents. Like past team-ups, we again see A Ma Maniére explore vintage design concepts, showcased with a seemingly pre-yellowed sole and netting panel.
Early looks revealed a second, stealthier scheme with with a splashes of burgundy here and there — the typical hues from the AMM x Nike color wheel. The black pairs were almost like an even more elderly version of the Metallic 5s and GORE-TEX 5s.
A Ma Maniére’s Jordan 5s also boast classic Jordan Brand and A Ma Maniére branding as sign-offs on the collaborative effort. What more can I say? It’s another effortless take by the label.
Both colorways are expected to arrive around the holiday season, rumored to release on November 22 for $225. Guess it is the most wonderful time of the year, especially for sneakerheads.
