Sneaker collaborations are all the rage these days, but things can go wrong very quickly when it’s not done right. Nike, for one, has set the tone with a long list of successful collaborations this year alone. And it looks like the upcoming A Ma Maniere x Nike Air Force 1 collaboration will continue this trend.
The collection, dubbed “Hand Wash Cold”, is a nod to the Atlanta-founded luxury boutique’s expertise in handling high-end products. Translating what they know to the collaboration, A Ma Maniere elevates the iconic silhouette with a host of premium materials.
Each panel provides a sensory adventure with fuzzy suede, soft tumbled leathers and exotic fur wrapping the uppers. Iridescent hits on the hardware and leather base round off the bold details. With emphasis placed on the premium details, the simplicity of the Air Force 1, however, isn’t lost in this collaboration, which will arrive in toned-down greyscale colorways for both the high and low iterations.
But it won’t be an easy feat trying to cop a pair as the A Ma Maniere x Nike Air Force 1 sneakers will launch in extremely limited quantities on Nike SNKRS, A Ma Maniere boutiques and select locations across North America. Each pair will come numbered, with only 5,269 pairs available for the low-top model and 5,914 pairs for the high-top model. If you’re based outside North America, chances are you’ll only get these on the secondary sneaker market.
