A Ma Maniere x Jordan 'Airness'

For its second collaboration with Jordan Brand, James Whitner's Atlanta-based boutique A Ma Maniére is presenting its luxury-inspired take on the Air Jordan 2 as well as accompanying apparel. Last week we also took a look at AMM's history and past collaborations - read it here. For the release, the brand also released a beautiful video featuring the poet Kyla Lacey providing an emotional piece expressing the release's themes of proficiency, blackness, lineage and resilience.

At the time, the original AJ2 was designed with a higher sense of luxury—made in Italy, it deployed faux-lizard skins, sleek lines and famously had no Swoosh. But in the 35 years since the AJ2 debuted, our collective sense of luxury has expanded, and to meet the moment, A Ma Maniére has crafted a new design language - showing restraint in its embellishments while also pushing the silhouette's elegant heritage further.

Replacing the premium-leather upper and faux-lizard skins with a sail all-over suede upper, A Ma Maniere is covering the AJ2 in vintage vibes with a modern luxury touch. The lizard-skin print from the OG gets textured onto the black midsole. Accenting this make-up, powerful Burgundy hits represent royalty—a natural tone to take with His Airness—for a deep and prestigious juxtaposition in colour. Finishing the style with bold, regal taste, "Maniére" branding dominates the heel on this special AJ2 collaboration.

Building on the brand’s commitment to creating timeless, classic, luxurious pieces, A Ma Maniere has designed a stately set of apparel that relies on simplicity and elegance via a colour palette that has since become synonymous with the A Ma Maniere brand. Cream, burgundy, and black comprise the entirety of the collection, with thoughtful branding hits that neither hide nor overpower the aesthetic. On the footwear is a similar colour scheme, but with an exotic snake texture on the midsole, cracked leather on the upper, and an assortment of attachments such as extra lacing and a large hangtag.
