Jordan 5 x A Ma Maniére “Black” and “Diffused Blue”
By Savanna Lattanzi | July 13th, 2023
The newest collaboration between Jordan and A Ma Maniére is set for release on November 22nd, 2023. Similar to the Air Jordan 11 collaboration, the focus of the new designs will be high end materials and classy styling. The release will give us two unique colorways to choose from, both in tune with the collaborative series’ overall colorstory. Each will showcase dual branding; A Ma Maniére lettering will be in the mid region and tongue and Air branding will show on the sole. White one shoe will feature the classic jumpman on the tongue, the other will don a large “A”. In addition, the AJ5 iconic mesh will be filled with the letter “A”, paying homage to the brand and creating a unique detail. Both colorways will feature a translucent outsole, pre-yellowed to follow the vintage feel. Here’s what we know about the colorways that will be released.
The first, “Black” will include, of course, black, as well as burgundy, white, and ivory hues. The tongue will be white with black A Ma branding, and the design’s iconic midsole zigzag will serve as the canvas for the burgundy splash of color. Black and ivory dominate the rest of the shoe for a darker color blocking strategy.
Recently, we’ve gained more insight into the more elusive second colorwar. The brighter of the two, “Diffused Blue”, will feature Photon Dust, Black, Diffused Blue, and Ivory. The base of this colorway is likely to be ivory, color blocking opposite the black to provide a lighter take on the collaboration. The zigzag in this colorway will feature the namesake Diffused Blue.
Your purchase of either colorway will come with extra laces and special packaging. Make sure to check back in late November on the Bullseye site to cop your pair!
