James Whitneer’s A Ma Maniere is working on another project with Jordan Brand this year, this time taking on the Jordan 5 for their canvas. The ‘Photon Dust’ color scheme has emerged this week, expected to drop in November.

The collaborative partnership between Jordan Brand and A Ma Maniere has been one of the most interesting in the world of sneakers over the past few years. It started back in 2021 with a highly sought-after Air Jordan 3, before following up with the classic Jordan 1 later in the year. Since then, they’ve gone on to release signature pairs of Jordans 2 and 4, and now, they are continuing to build out the lineup with pairs of the Jordan 17 and Jordan 5 on the way. Originally just a rumor, this week we got our first look at the ‘Photon Dust’ color scheme for the AJ5, as well as a potential release date of November 2023. The look features a white leather upper with yellowed plastic cages for the midfoot and tongue sections. Dark blue shades make up the inner linings and midsole details, with a jet-black sole to complete the look. AMM and Jordan’s branding is present on each tongue.


The latest project from Atlanta’s A Ma Maniere and Jordan Brand is expected to drop on November 22nd, 2023. The ‘Photon Dust’ color scheme will likely be released initially from the retailer before seeing a wider release via the SNKRS app and select stores for $225. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more sneaker release news.
