A Crown Jewel: A Ma Maniére and Air Jordan 4’s Collaboration on the Rich “VIOLET ORE” Retro Colorway

Experience premium luxury and outstanding style through the unmatched A MA Manière x Air Jordan 4 collaboration.

Air Jordan is back at it again with yet another collaboration. This time it is with the beloved Atlanta-based boutique, A Ma Manière. After successful collaborations on the Air Jordan 1, 2, and 3 models, it was only fair that the iconic Air Jordan 4 got a taste of A Ma Manière’s premium richness, luxury, and class.

Founded in 2020, A Ma Manière’s commitment to the integrity of its brand through utilizing premium materials and exclusivity has made it a top contender for high-end brand collaborations. A Ma Manière, which translates to My Way in French, is a brand that emphasizes and embodies individualism and the subsequent cultural influence on urban communities. The brand occasionally relies on high-end streetwear and footwear brand collaborations to connect with its community by delivering the newest styles and trends. A Ma Manière ensures that all of its products and collaborations are of the utmost quality.

Enter Nike’s iconic Air Jordan. The first collaboration between the two brands, which was modeled on the Air Jordan 3, was a tribute to the black women in the community. Wherein the women were prioritized in the design, sizing, and precedence of purchase. After A Ma Manière’s long-standing partnership with the revolutionary brand, they finally applied their outstanding craftsmanship and luxurious touch to the Air Jordan 4 back in 2022.

Bathe in Richness

Like the rest of the brand release, the A Ma Maniére X Air Jordan 4 Retro “VIOLET ORE” pays homage to black leaders and the community at large. Their take on the silhouette includes a deep purple, which borders on a chocolate brown-dominated upper. The body is made up of premium leather, which gives it a very rich look. In order to maintain a clean, seamless aesthetic, they opted to match the netting and laces to the upper of the sneaker. The midsoles include a contrasting mix of cream and black hues, which beautifully break up the uniformity of the sneaker. Additional hints of purple can be found along the rubber outsole, mudguard, and heel tab. To top it off, you can find the iconic Jumpman Jordan logo and Ma Maniére’s logo on the left and right tongues, respectively.

The details on this sneaker are immaculate. The sock liners and insoles are quilted, which not only adds to the overall aesthetic of the sneaker but also contributes to its overall comfort by adding additional cushioning. However, it is the message at the heel tab, which reads, “It’s not about the shoes, it’s about where you’re going,” that takes the cake. If you’re a long-time fan of Michael Jordan, you’d know that this quote is from his campaign back in 2008.
