The world of sneaker collaborations continues to expand and astonish, with A Ma Maniére and The Whitaker Group pushing the design and stylistic boundaries with their latest Air Jordan release.
The pure white, the textured leather upper is a striking element, lending a sumptuous sense to the sneaker that is only heightened by the subtle snakeskin motifs around the collar and swooshes.
What really distinguishes this sneaker is the attention to detail that has gone into its design.
The “Hand Wash Cold” sample incorporates more pronounced reptile elements, giving it a one-of-a-kind addition to any shoe collection.
The debossed cleaning institution logos on the lateral lower heel; carry over from A Ma Maniére’s Air Force 1 capsule in November 2019; demonstrating the brand’s commitment to crafting unified collections that stand out from the crowd.
The incorporation of the shop’s name on the spine and the embroidered “Wings” logo; on the ankle flaps are both subtle details that contribute to the overall look of the shoe.
While it is disappointing that the sneakers will not be available on Nike SNKRS; fans may hope that the concept will be revived in future ventures.
