In 2021, the sneaker market has witnessed a surplus of striking collaborations hit the shelves and one of the offerings that continues to come up in conversation as one of the top releases of the year is the A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 3 “Raised by Women”. And given that this team-up was so well-received amongst footwear lovers, the luxury boutique is building upon its momentum with Jordan Brand and getting ready to unleash its next collaborative piece — a snakeskin-adorned Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG.

The design details on this impending take are clean from top to bottom. Instead of utilizing the silhouette’s traditional leather upper, James Whitner and his team have leaned on suede to craft most of its base layer and has dyed it with a sail-like hue. A rich maroon tone does the contrasting here and shows face on the snakeskin Swooshes and collars as well as the laces, ball-and-wings logos and Nike Air branding on the tongues. Much like how the aforementioned Air Jordan 3 collab hid a message inside its heel counter, this pair also bears a concealed note on the interior of the ankle flaps that bears MJ’s signature alongside the inspirational phrase “You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.” Stringing together its entire look is a vintage-y midsole and a full burgundy outsole.

In case you missed it, first images of the Air Jordan 11 “Cool Grey” retro have emerged.
