There’s no doubt that A Ma Maniere was one of the best collaborators of 2021, offering luxurious takes on both the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 1. And later this year, James Whitner and the beloved boutique may recreate magic as they turn their attention over to the Air Jordan 2.

Brought back by the late, revered Virgil Abloh, MJ’s second signature is finally seeing the spotlight it deserves. Here, A Ma Maniere applies their taste for high-end, upgrading the construction with interesting materials. The “Sail” suede, for instance, is subtly cracked upon closer glance, subverting what was used for the label’s prior collaboration. Then, along the midsole, a print simulates snakeskin, with each scale sized up much larger than the mock-up indicates. Elsewhere, the hang tag and heel are finished in a deep burgundy, backdropping the black and white branding raised over top.

For a quick first look at Whitner’s latest, see below. A release is currently rumored to land April 29th, but that could very well change down road.
