Original Story (07/30/21): James Whitner and A Maniére knocked it out of the park with their Air Jordan 3 collab, many considering it the shoe of the year (so far). The follow-up, a collaboration on the Air Jordan 1, is giving the AJ3 a run for its money.

First look photos of the AMM x Air Jordan 1 have surfaced, revealing the model dressed in Sail fine cracked leather. The Swoosh and ankle collar come dressed in burgundy and feature a snakeskin-like texture. More hits of burgundy are found on the laces, tongue tag, Wings logo, outsole, and quilted sockliner. Additional details include a yellowed midsole, cursive A Ma Maniére branding on the tongue tag, and a co-branded label stitched onto the insoles. Finally, we also see Michael Jordan’s signature hidden on the ankle flaps along with a couple quotes: “You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them” and “Learning’s a gift, even when pain is your teacher.”

The A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 1 High OG is slated to drop this holiday season via A Ma Maniére, SNKRS, and select retailers. Grab a first look at this release below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
