Leaked in early September last year, not much was known about a special-edition Air Jordan 3 “Violet Ore”. From first being listed as a women’s, then kids, then full-size release, there was plenty of speculation. Now, the premium-listing has come to light, and its identity revealed: A Ma Maniere x Air Jordan 3 “Raised By Women”
The retailer has found itself on the end of some of the most desirable footwear collaborations of the past few years, and it’s no mistake nor is it sheer luck. James Whitner and co. have carefully crafted some of the most luxurious offerings without being too overt, bringing in a much-needed tastefulness to the game, and managing to capture their own personality along the way, The upcoming A Ma Maniere x Air Jordan 3 “Violet Ore” does just that and more, bringing everything you want to the table. A timeless silhouette, a premium construction, and some subtle elevations that ooze just enough elegance.
Soft grey suede at the toe-box, lace collar, and heel, join a quilted interior lining to match the outsole. Muted “Violet Ore” hits the heel in a small departure from its mostly monochrome make-up, and is joined by aged-look work at the midsole and eyelets to establish an in-vogue luxury vintage aesthetic. While not pictured, the ever-important Nike Air logos are on the heel, and the pair is completed by dual branding at the tongue in 3D embroidery.
The A Ma Maniere x Air Jordan 3 is officially set to release during the Spring 2021 season in adult (size 3.5M5/W to 14.5M/16W), pre-school, and toddler sizes.
