His ability to make releases with purpose and connection is almost unparalleled. I love that he made sure that the initial release went to women Strictly because the shoe is a nod to the amazing woman in his life.Moreover, when you look at the implementation of the shoe, you realize how special this shoe is.

“It’s no secret that James Wittner has had a banner year, but none of his projects have been as straightforward and polarizing as the AMM AJ1. Unlike other sneakers whose messages seemed more universally translatable, the AJ1 shoe broke the gentrification taboo as it related to black culture. Although Its simplicity is on the surface, yet the beauty of this shoe lies beneath the surface, from the MJ quotes to the quilted lining. The images of strength were a beautiful bow to wrap this gift-wrapping, depicting the theft of a culture resold to the one that created it.” – David “Carrie” Daniels

Another layer pulled off what shaped Aleali into the icon that she is today, taking us into her mid-school days. Inspiring, with the Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT “Califia”. Let’s not forget that it was accompanied by the first-ever full-wear capsule of a women’s collaboration in Jordan. Follow it up with her deeply rooted black and Filipino cultural traditions passed down from her grandmothers, outlined in taupe, jade and gold. Athletic.” – TJ Kisal

“Now when I think of sneaker shoes, Billie Eilish isn’t really the first name that comes to mind, respectfully, but nowadays we’re seeing more and more artists getting sneakers and apparel on a regular basis. With all that being said, her AJKO’s was cool And I’m upset because I missed it. The silhouette came completely dressed in ‘Ghost Green,’ which we’ve seen dye her hair over the years. It’s also great that she went the sustainable route using these 100% plant-based and 20% recycled materials.” – Henri Francois
