First look at the A Ma Maniere Jordan 5 in “Black” and “Light Bone”
moThe A Ma Maniere Jordan 5 is a partnership continuation between the Jumpman and the retailer fresh off their Jordan 12 collab. The sneaker in “Black” was first spotted on James Whitner himself during a “Free Game” session at Harvard Business School. As of now, the black-based makeup that Whitner wore along with a “Light Bone” is expected to drop this 2023 holiday season.
The A Ma Maniere Air Jordan 5 will arrive in a “Black” featuring a mix of “Black, Burgundy Crush, and Pale Ivory”. While the accompanying “Light Bone” colorway features tones of “Light Bone, Black, Burgundy Crush, and Pale Ivory.” Both colorways will feature the boutique’s penchant for high-quality materials as well as their tasteful, often luxurious branding like on previous collaborative releases. Additionally, the A Ma Maniere Air Jordan 5 comes complete with special packaging marking the team-up.
The “Black” colorway is suited up with a buttery black suede material. It comes complemented by James Whitner’s retailer’s signature maroon accents along the tongue’s Jumpman logo and midsole spikes. A yellow tint toggles the netted throats, quarter panels, and lace toggles to provide an aged aesthetic.
The “Light Bone” colorway features the same buttery suede in light bone. The same Whitner’s signature maroon highlights the Jumpman logo and midsole spikes. And an icy blue accents the outsole.
A Ma Maniere Jordan 5: Cop or Drop?
The kicks will drop on November 22nd. They’ll also retail for a price tag of $225 on a-ma-maniere.com and Nike SNKRS. From a sneakerhead’s point of view, you need those. But, from a sneaker reseller’s point of view, you definitely need those! The resale value of these bad boys ranges from $277 to $2000 on GOAT! Also, take a look at the A Ma Maniere Jordan 4 “Violet Ore”. These babies are reselling at an average price of $406 on Stockx after retailing for the same $225 initially.
Moral of the story? You need to cop ’em sneaks and you need to cop ’em good! If you’re thinking “I’ll set my alarm for the release and add it to my cart,” you’re gonna have to reconsider. Nike drops are as crappy as it could get, and copping manually on release day is the simplest recipe for one L after another. To raise your odds of owning at least one A Ma Maniere Jordan 5, get yourself a great Nike Bot.
And if you’re dead serious about your sneaker-copping game, you gotta equip yourself with some proxies and Nike accounts. One more thing before we leave you to it, a sneaker server can either make or break your whole setup. So, make sure you choose that one right. Good luck shitfam!
