James Whitner and A Ma Maniere continue the partnership with Jordan Brand on the Jordan Air Ship.
Jordan Brand has found a key collaborator with James Whitner’s “The Whitaker Group,” more specifically with the brand's higher-end retail location A Ma Maniere. So far, their work has taken over various retro releases like the AJ 1-4 with the AJ 12 in “Black Burgundy” and “White Burgundy,” however, the work with Jordan Brand is continuing onto the Air Ship. While we did see the duo work on an ultra-limited pair last year, Holiday 2023 will see A Ma Maniere once again tackle the oft-forgotten predecessor with the Jordan Air Ship “White Black.”
Keeping things simple like all Air Ships, the silhouette maintains its mostly all-white leather build with the OG details you’d find on pairs from the 80. Tonal stitching helps create depth to the upper and features similar panels to the AJ 1 with perforated leather on the toebox and Nike Air branding atop the tongue, the latter of which comes in black. Our final hit of black on the upper lands on the leather collar with more Nike Air branding featured in white. While we don’t know exactly where A Ma Maniere branding will come through, it’s likely we see a similar tag added to the tongue tag just like the first collab between the two labels. Rounding out the look is the white Air Ship midsole paired with a black rubber outsole.
The A Ma Maniere x Jordan Air Ship White Black is set to release Holiday 2023 through A Ma Maniere, Nike SNKRS, and possibly through select retailers online and in-store. Releasing in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $140.
