A Ma Manière x Air Jordan 2 “Airness” release date


James Whitner and his team The Whitaker Group have been providing their perspective on culture for over a decade, but they only recently gained attention thanks in large part to their string of Air Jordan collaborations.

Thanks to A Ma Maniére, a Whitaker Group agency, Whitner and his team have developed highly coveted pairs of the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 3. A compliment to the former, the collaborators are set to launch an Air Jordan 2 in May. . 13th under the “Airness” banner. The pair had been teased for months through sneaker info leaks, but A Ma Maniére only recently unveiled the pair via the short film “Your Airness.” In two minutes and 10 seconds, cinematographer Tyler Clark captures spoken word artist Kyla Lacey reciting an original and powerful poem implicitly directed to black and brown communities. A rose growing from concrete; black mothers with their children; and black youth speaking out in clothing and performance is captured in the campaign led by the Turner Brothers, motifs that have appeared in stories that have accompanied previous work of A Ma Maniére.

The store’s Jordan 2 indulges in an equally understated color scheme as its two predecessors, with high-grade crackle leather taking up most of the upper. A royal hue, reminiscent of wine, lands on the thorns and is accompanied by the mark “MANIERE”. The quilted inner liner returns to its role, adding yet another touch of luxury to Whitner and the team’s version of Michael Jordan’s second signature sneaker. Additionally, scale-like patterns land all over the pair, most notably on the midsole, lending yet another bit of luxury to the basketball-designed silhouette. Together, each of the aforementioned components creates a compelling footwear product, while simultaneously representing so much more. Whitner spoke of the sneakers serving as a conduit for telling stories that have historically been ignored by mainstream culture, and as a symbol of a lifetime’s work for the betterment of black and brown people.
