The style of A Ma Maniére blends the concepts of timeless, classic and luxury, all signed by James Whitner. The designer for this limited edition project, inspired by his mother, has brought the Air Jordan 3 back to their simplest shape by adding luxury details such as suede replacing the traditional elephant print and a quilted lining that makes up the inner lining.
Nike Air Jordan 3 Retro A Ma Manière (W) features a white textured leather upper contrasted by suede in a neutral shade between gray and beige on the toe, collar, eyelets and heel. The quilted inner lining takes up the nuance of suede but carrying it on a shiny satin fabric. The midsole is characterized on the heel by the "Violet Ore" shade, a very dark purple close to brown tones, which is found next to the beige and white elements. The "yellowed" white detail of the midsole, also echoed by the eyelets and the reinforced heel, gives the sneaker a perfect vintage luxury style.
It has always been Whitner's priority to ensure that women, especially black women, had access to this very special project at launch, which is why it granted them early exclusive access to the release of this uniquely styled Jordan 3.
