A Ma Maniére released a highly-coveted Air Jordan 1 on December 3, 2021. The shoe fell in line with its Air Jordan 3 the previous year, but sample runs showcase a different story.
Recently, an unreleased version of The Whitaker Group’s second official Air Jordan collaboration appeared across social media. The sneaker features a pure white, textured leather across the upper. Snakeskin patterns around the collar and at the profile swooshes opt for a contrasting black hue. Furthermore, the reptilian touch is more defined on the “Hand Wash Cold” sample than on retail pairs. Cleaning institution graphics are debossed into the lateral lower heel, continuing a concept previously seen on Maniére’s Air Force 1 capsule from November 2019. Lastly, the shop’s name is printed on the spine, while “Wings” branding on the ankle flaps is embroidered in all-black.
Enjoy a closer look at the pair ahead. The shoes likely won’t hit Nike SNKRS at any point, but James Whitner and team could revisit the concept on another project in the future.
