Like I wrote last weekJordan Brand is once again doing what it can to sublimate the Air Jordan 2, a model that is often overlooked, this time thanks to a collaboration with A Ma Maniére.
A Ma Manière has already collaborated with Jordan Brand twice, on the Air Jordan 1 and the Air Jordan 3. These models proved to be very popular, with many taking note of the quality of the materials used, especially compared to the normal Jordan Brand retros. Nike itself notes on the SNKRS app that James Whitner’s store offers their “luxury-inspired” version of the Air Jordan 2 here, which is saying a lot since the model was originally luxury-inspired in the 1980s.
You can read more about the design of this collaboration here.
This model was originally supposed to release in May, but obviously this release was delayed for undisclosed reasons. And it won’t be a normal version of SNKRS. It looks like this release will be similar to last month’s Kobe 6 Protro “Mambacita Sweet 16” in which access will be granted to what Nike describes as its “most dedicated SNKRS members who love Jordan and A Ma Maniere”, whatever that means. More information below:
As Nike states, even if you get exclusive access, that doesn’t guarantee you’ll be able to get the shoe in your size. All in all, it seems like a lot of people are turning to the aftermarket after this shoe hits the market. Good luck to everyone who opts for this shoe on Friday!
