A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 2 Officially Unveiled

Updated: Apr 27

Your Airness.


The first was an ode to the gentle and caring nurturing that only mothers, aunts, grandmothers could provide; with the critically acclaimed, A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 3 'Raised By Women'. A tale near to The Whitaker Group founder, James Whitner. In the second chapter; from the cracks within the concrete, sprouted a rose ... and that rose was the A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 1 High. Act three takes us to the polarizing Air Jordan 2 Retro.


Carrying a similar color scheme to its predecessors, the AJ2 closely resembles the AJ1 from its crackled premium leather upper draped in a Sail motif. The silhouette sports a scaled black sleek midsole with Burgundy Crush accents on the heel, outsole and on one set of laces. The tale of "Your Airness" speaks to rising above in many ways and soaring above. There is some derivative from MJ's 1987 Slam Dunk Contest win and juxtaposed to messages of elevation and pride in your Blackness.


Just as the campaign states, "our airness is forever."


The A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 2 Retro releases exclusively at A Ma Maniére on May 13th. Stay with Sole-U on both Twitter and Instagram for further details.
