The long-awaited collaboration between A Ma Maniére and Jordan Brand is materializing with the upcoming release of their Air Jordan 5 colorways, "Dawn" and "Dusk," this November. More than mere footwear, these sneakers are a tribute to the legacy of James Baldwin and Maya Angelou, launching alongside the "Still We Rise" film.
A Ma Maniére's James Whitner highlights the importance of diversity within the Black experience, aligning with the partnership's ethos, "Our diversity is our collective strength."
The Air Jordan 5 "Dawn" and "Dusk" feature a premium suede upper with elegant accents, bespoke monogram, and a jacquard liner, embodying the brand's signature luxury.
Complementing the sneakers is a line of apparel, from satin bombers to fleece hoodies, each piece narrating stories of aspiration.
The "Dawn" will be available on A Ma Maniére's website on November 17th, with "Dusk" arriving later at select retailers. This collaboration is a testament to the confluence of style, substance, and storytelling in sneaker culture.
In today's world, the A Ma Maniére x Air Jordan 5 release is a shining example of inclusive and impactful collaborative creativity.
