At the end of last year, James Whitner teamed up with the Swoosh for the A Ma Maniere x Nike Air Force 1 "Hand Wash Cold" Pack. Comprising of two ultra limited pairs, only a few lucky sneakerheads were able to get their hands on them. If you thought they were exclusive, however, wait until you see the brand new "Friends & Family" edition that's just been unveiled over on their official Instagram page!
Dipped in a "Triple Black" colour palette, the AMM Air Force 1 features a buttery smooth suede construction with grey underlays throughout for a subtle yet striking pop of contrast. The medial side is debossed with "A Ma Maniere" branding in all caps, while the lateral side is adorned with an individually numbered tag that's limited the shoe to 989 pairs.
Around the heel you'll find a care tag that nods to the Nike collaboration's inspiration, and to the front, Whitner has used this special sneaker to show his support for the Black Lives Matter moment with the message "People who use their voices to lead".
While 99% of F&F releases won't ever be made available to the public, the A Ma Maniere x Nike Air Force 1 "Hand Wash Cold" F&F Edition is the 1%. If you want to get your hand on a pair, the Atlanta-based brand have some specific instructions over on their IG page, so make sure you head on over and follow them step by step. Let us know if you'd cop these, and while you're here, you might as well take your first look at the KITH x Nike Air Force 1 "Paris"!
