Editor’s Notes: Yoon Ahn continues her collaborative partnership with Nike with a new project alongside Converse, as the AMBUSH founder has completely reworked two classic silhouettes in the Chuck 70 and Pro Leather. Inspired by Converse's rubber military boot from the 1950s, the Extreme Cold Weather Boot, the sneakers showcase AMBUSH's signature exaggerated styling.

At first glance, you'll notice the heightened platform midsole of the Chuck 70. The shoe features embellished rubber layering and a coconut milk-colored rubberized upper with matte detailing, in addition to a gusseted tongue for stability and insulation, and tonal laces.

Ahn then gives the Pro Leather a black rubberized upper, branded with a tonal 3D Converse Star Chevron logo. The sneaker also also has a gusseted tongue and tonal laces, while cyber yellow instructional AMBUSH branding tags the pair on the elevated heel.

Speaking with Highsnobiety, Ahn mentioned the Chuck Taylor was completed in with only one round of sampling, “We only went through one sample. I was so happy when they sent the first sample over to Tokyo. When I took it out of the box, I was like, ‘This is perfect.’”

Speaking on re-thinkign such a classic sneaker, Ahn also revealed "I’m not too afraid of reinterpreting things. As a fan of Converse and as a fan of Chuck Taylor, I was quite excited, because I wanted my version, if I were to make my own version, what kind of Chuck Taylor would I want to wear? I always kind of imagined this.”

Yoon Ahn's AMBUSH x Converse sneakers are due to release on October 19.
