Model: CTAS Duck Boot
Key Features: The AMBUSH x Converse CTAS Duck Boot pairs layers of rubber with woven fabric for functionality and style, while a reinforced leather collar provides added protection at the ankle. The shoe is then equipped with a lugged outsole for enhanced traction and lift. AMBUSH branding and bold sizing are stamped on the heel above the Converse license plate to complete the design.
Release Date: November 21 in China and November 24 globally
Editor’s Notes: Yoon Ahn and AMBUSH have worked on a seasonally-appropriate wading boot to complement the previously unveiled fuzzy Chuck 70. Also offered in blue and black colorways, the CTAS Duck Boot is constructed specifically for outdoor utility wear.
With references to the Chuck Taylor All Star Lugged, the boot is characterized by its weather-resistance and functionality. The Chuck Taylor Lugged was originally deigned as a women's shoe, but has since gone genderless, a transformation that is further improved upon by Yoon.
“I believe that there is no distinct line between what is distinctly men’s or women’s in the sneaker world," she said. "I designed these pieces to offer functionality and fun, while they carry us into the destination we are heading to every day with ease.”
The AMBUSH x Converse CTAS Duck Boot releases alongside the Chuck 70 Fuzzy, first in China on November 21 and then globally on November 24.
