A Ma Maniére Links With Jordan Brand for an Air Ship Collaboration in This Week’s Best Footwear Drops

School is back in session for a plethora of students across the nation which means summer is whittling down to its last few weeks. And before the warmest season of the year concludes, sneaker brands such as Nike, adidas, New Balance and more are making it a point to fire out as many releases as they can. Before we get down to the top drops of this week, let us first travel back in time to recap all of last week's action.

Our Sole Mates series proceeded with another feature as usual to highlight adidas communications managers Rocky Zhang and his love for former NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas and his signature Gil 2 Zero model. In terms of news from the German brand, we caught a closer look at the adidas adiFOM Q, learned that the adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 "Pirate Black" is slated to return and received word on its kebab-inspired ZX8000 colorway.

Shifting the attention over to the Nike side now, the Swoosh teased an Off-White™ x Nike Air Force 1 Mid "Graffiti" colorway as well as a Tom Sachs x NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe "Brown" iteration. Kyrie Irving laced up what could be his final signature with the brand in the Kyrie 9 and the Nike Air Max 90 Futura was revealed with a delectable "Neapolitan" makeover. On the Jordan Brand side we were blessed with a closer look at its forthcoming Air Jordan 12 collaboration with A Ma Maniére, more imagery of the Air Jordan 1 High "Gorge Green" and on-foot shots of Travis Scott's Air Jordan 1 Low OG SP "Black Phantom."

In terms of other brands, size? teased teal 1906R collab, Awake NY's ASICS GEL-LYTE III capsule was announced and Anuel AA's Reebok Pump Omni Zone II was unveiled.

Why You Should Cop: One pattern that we’ve noticed with Nike and its classic Air Huarache is that it’ll often turn to the brand’s ACG category for inspiration. In the past we’ve seen the Sportswear model reference the Lunar Air 180 ACG for an exclusive colorway with size?, and now this latest “British Tan” makeup nods to Olivia Kim’s variation from 2019.

Social media has been eating up this colorway like no other since the brand officially announced its launch date, and you can certainly expect these to sell out the minute they drop.

Why You Should Cop: Before introducing its Air Jordan 12 and Air Jordan 4 collaborations to the world, A Ma Maniére is hashing out room for an unexpected Air Ship team-up with Jordan Brand. Construction-wise, the James Whitner-led imprint leaves its traditional leather build alone, but decides to coat the Swooshes and collars with “Game Royal'' paint jobs. Nike Air hits are located on the tongues and heels as usual, the former of which also has an “A Ma Maniére” hit below. Additionally, the insides of the tongues are adorned with an individual number out of 2300, which is the amount of pairs that exist.
