Air Jordan 3 Retro ‘A Ma Maniére’ Release June 10th
Created by sneaker connoisseur Tinker Hatfield, the Air Jordan 3 made a significant impact within footwear history due to its unique attributes. This sneaker was the first Jordan to highlight the iconic Jumpman emblem on the tongue. The unmistakable image is now synonymous with the brand and is now recognizable across the globe. Its mid-cut length also made history as it was the first-ever basketball shoe with this design. Michael Jordan introduced the silhouette alongside Mars Blackmon from the movie She’s Gotta Have It played by renowned director Spike Lee. The advertisement was memorable and solidified the impact Michael Jordan had on pop culture. Later in the 90s, the Retro versions were released but the most sought-after designs include the ‘Cement Grey’ colorways.
The latest debut of the shoe is a collaborative effort with streetwear label A Ma Maniére, created by American entrepreneur James Whitner. The Air Jordan 3’s silhouette is rendered to fit Whitner’s aesthetic without missing the signature cues of the original. A natural theme is seen throughout as a tumbled leather base is accented with monotone overlays and off-white accents. A cream hue is placed on the eyelets which matches nicely with the durable rubber outsole. Suede accents are placed at the heel and toe box replacing the legendary elephant print that the sneaker is well-known for. Elevated qualities include a quilted textile lining and mismatching woven branding at the tongue. Nike’s signature Air technology is placed in the midsole for a responsive and lightweight experience emphasizing its comfortable fit. The sneaker comes complete with exclusive co-branded tags that commemorate the event and authenticity of the sneakers. Its neutral design is immensely sought-after as many sneaker enthusiasts enjoy its natural palette and premium elements.
