A Ma Manière x Air Jordan III
The American luxury streetwear boutique founded by James Whitner A MA MANIERE is once again partnering with Jordan Brand. According to the well-informed account @zsneakerheadz, this upcoming collaboration will be based on the legendary Air Jordan III silhouette.
After a difficult childhood and a stint in prison, James Whitner, the « the street disciple of the retail » has become a major entrepreneur. He’s the head of a conglomerate called « The Whitaker Group », which includes nearly 20 stores. His company also owns a hotel and a communications agency, and is diversifying even more its activities. James Whitner fights against the stigma of the « hood dude », supports promising young entrepreneurs and is committed to fighting discrimination. This quote from Winston Churchill sums up his state of mind : « Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It’s the courage to continue that counts ».
The sneaker designed by the great Tinker Hatfield retains much of its DNA. It is dressed in a palette of colors ranging from white to black through grey and a touch of purple. According to the first mock-up, the shoe consists of a white leather upper with the emblematic « Elephant print » overlays on the front and back of the foot. Black accents under the ankle and on the heel clip, as well as purple details complete the design. The white and grey sole completes the look. This collaboration will also include a textile collection.
The A Ma Manière x Air Jordan III was scheduled for release in early 2021 in women’s and children’s sizes at selected retailers and on Nike.com. Stay tuned for the latest updates !
