Over the last 16 years, James Whitner has brought a sense of community and luxury to the retail landscape by way of endeavors like Social Status, A.P.B. and A Ma Maniére. The most latter boutique – which translates into “My Way” from French – launched one of the best sneakers of 2021 (so far) in an Air Jordan 3, and it seems to have a snakeskin-covered Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG in the works.
While yet to be confirmed by Whitner or anyone associated to the project, the newly-surfaced pair shares design cues with the aforementioned drop. Akin to the first Air Jordan‘s mythical “Metallic” collection, the upcoming pair indulges in a “colorless” arrangement that allows for details around the collar, at the branding and outsole to revel in the spotlight. Instead of shades of grey, however, the retro boasts a wine-like tone at these areas, as well as the laces. Quilted padding line the inside of the shoe, while the boutique’s name shares real estate with “NIKE AIR” text on the tongue label. Lastly, ankle flaps hide both Michael Jordan’s signature and a message regarding expectations for oneself.
Enjoy an extremely early-look at the anticipated Jordan 1 here below, and anticipate official Nike SNKRS release details as the end of 2021 inches closer. Furthermore, this pair may only be arriving in women’s-sizing like the AJ 3.
Elsewhere under the NIKE, Inc. umbrella, Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 collection is set to launch throughout Spring 2022.
