Model: Dunk High
Key Features: The black and white AMBUSH x Nike Dunk High features a leather upper, with Swoosh branding on the side that extends out beyond the heel. The sneaker also has a perforated toe box and a co-branded tongue tag.
Release Date: December 11
Editor’s Notes: After sharing official product shots, Nike has confirmed a December 11 release date for Yoon Ahn's AMBUSH x Nike Dunk High. The black and white pair is rumored to be complemented by a pink colorway, although Nike has yet to confirm the latter.
The AMBUSH x Nike Dunk High debuted in both colorways at the Swoosh’s Future Sports Forum presentation earlier this year. Per Ahn, the AMBUSH x Nike Dunk High channels Japanese bike, car, and truck culture, with its elongated and heightened form, and Swoosh that extends beyond the heel like bike pipes.
“I thought, 'how can I make the shoes almost look like this moving thing?,’” Yoon said.
The collaborative Dunk is dropping alongside a range of AMBUSH x Nike Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets apparel. For this portion, Ahn has transformed the iconic tearaway basketball warm-up into an insulated trouser with a double waist band. The pants are joined by matching jackets, all of which have been designed specifically for women.
“I thought of all these amazing and strong female characters from the ’90s who would come out in men’s clothes, and I wanted to see how we could carry that attitude, but bring in more feminine forms,” Ahn added.
The AMBUSH x Nike collection will be available globally beginning December 11.
