Jordan Brand and A Ma Maniére have collaborated in the past on the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 2 and Air Jordan 3. Can you guess which model they’re collaborating on this time? That’s right, the Air Jordan 4! And this one is a beaut.
I’ve written about the Air Jordan 4 plenty of times before, but as always with a collab from a James Whitner boutique, this release had a story to tell. The brand noted on its website that “the A Ma Maniére Air Jordan 4 draws on the promise of youth to be the catalysts for change, standing up in the face of adversity and divisiveness.” Given its proximity to the midterm elections, A Ma Maniére gave two ways to have a chance to purchase this release, as seen in a Twitter thread below:
Of course, at this point, you’ve missed the opportunity to provide a video highlighting an issue important to you. The good news, however, is that you can still buy a pair, as they release again on the SNKRS app on November 23 for $225.
This release on the always popular Air Jordan 4 looks to have premium materials and will feature similar color tones as A Ma Maniére’s previous Jordan collabs. This drop will utilize a Violet Ore upper with Violet Ore wings, a cream midsole with hits of black, a black heel tab featuring the OG “Nike Air” branding, a silver button on the lateral side of each shoe and a quilted interior. The shoes will also feature alternating Jordan Brand and A Ma Maniére branding on the tongues.
All three of the previous Jordan Brand x A Ma Maniére collabs are selling for well above retail on Stock X, with the Air Jordan 3 collab currently sitting at an average sale price of $612, which is a 313% price premium, and volatility sitting at 15%. So, if you strike out on release day, be prepared to go above retail on the aftermarket.
Best of luck to all looking to pick up a pair!
