A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 2 Retro SP
After delivering its Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 1 High collaborations to the world in 2021, A Ma Maniére has swiftly established itself as a force in the game of footwear. Through its stunning design language and impeccable storytelling, James Whitner — The Whitaker Group founder — and his team has elevated the way we look at the successful team-ups, and the brand is set to build upon its momentum with a brand new offering: the A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 2 Retro SP.
Based off of the first leaked images of the shoes, we can already confirm that much of the same DNA that was found in the aforementioned makeups has rolled over to this iteration. In similar fashion to the Air Jordan 1, creamy cracked leathers are utilized for the base layer, and this is neighbored with a deep burgundy piping and heel counters as well as a stealthy gray mudguard. Additionally, you’ll find small doses of black along the laces, ball-and-wings logos on the tongues and the quilted interior lining. Other elements to bring to light include “Maniére” box logos that stand out in white on the heels, branded A Ma Maniére hang tags and blacked out snakeskin textures that are applied to the midsoles.
Peep an early glance at the kicks right here and note that these are expected to release sometime in the coming months. via Hypebeast.com

“Just Do It” Messaging And Bold Red Swooshes Animate The Next Nike Waffle One
The Nike Waffle One hasn’t been able to rid itself of comparisons to sacai’s highly-praised LDWaffle,
but it continues to carve out its own lane via compelling, playful styleFor its latest ensemble, the vintage-inspired silhouette has emerged in hits of white, cream, grey and red for a spring and summer-appropriate look. Textile bases maintain their semi-translucence, while suede overlays around the toe and heel deliver a touch of durability to the ultra-lightweight pair. “Just Do It”-messaging lands on the latter area, sitting just above a cool grey molded heel clip, and below ruby-colored profile swooshes. Sole units opt for a tried-and-proven white and black color combination, with waffle-patterned tread being accompanied with a strip of red towards the rear.
Enjoy official images of the pair here below, and anticipate a Nike.com launch soon.
