A Ma Maniére founder James Whitner has recently sent the sneaker community into a frenzy with a sneak peek at what is believed to be the boutique's next highly anticipated collaboration with Jordan Brand. The collaboration features the second iteration of the iconic Air Jordan 4 silhouette, but in a reversed colourway much like the Dusk and Dawn A Ma Maniere Jordan 5s from last year.
Capturing James Whitner himself sporting what is presumed to be the A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 4, the sneaker boasts a captivating pink-ish hue that covers the entire upper, creating a striking and eye-catching aesthetic. Complementing this bold colorway are brown and sail hits on the midsole, adding depth and contrast to the overall design.
Detail-oriented sneakerheads will appreciate the thoughtful touches incorporated into this collaboration. The A Ma Maniére branding makes a statement on the heel tab, cementing the authenticity of the partnership and adding an extra layer of exclusivity to the sneakers. It's these nuanced details that set collaborations apart and elevate them into hyped collector's items. In addition to the Air Jordan 4 collaboration, there are whispers of another collaboration featuring the Air Jordan 3. While details on the Air Jordan 3 collaboration remain shrouded in mystery, the mere mention of a second collaboration has intensified the excitement surrounding A Ma Maniére's partnership with Jordan Brand. 
In addition Sneaker Freaker has brought the exclusive scoop on an unreleased A Ma Maniére x Nike Air Max 95 collaboration, providing a glimpse into the unique fusion of Nike's iconic design and A Ma Maniére's signature style. The Air Max 95 is presented in a palette of varying gray and pink hue tones, staying true to the synonymous A Ma Maniére design ethos. A Ma Maniére's rendition of the Air Max 95 introduces subtle yet striking design elements. The panels are separated by a distinctive zigzag stitch, creating a visually dynamic and textured look. A Ma Maniére's iconic embroidery is prominently featured along the toe, offering a nod to the brand's attention to craftsmanship and detailing.  This venture into Nike Sportswear territory is not A Ma Maniére's first rodeo. In 2019, the boutique delivered a multi-shoe Nike Air Force 1 collection, showcasing the brand's ability to infuse its distinct aesthetic into various Nike silhouettes. The success of past collaborations only heightens the anticipation for what A Ma Maniére has in store for fans with the Air Max 95 partnership.
As of now, there is no confirmed release information for the 95s but they should be expected in the last Quarter of 2024.
