Editor’s Notes: The rumors are true: Yoon Ahn plans to AMBUSH her next Nike collaboration, where she tackles the brand's timeless Air Adjust Force sneaker in AMBUSH fashion (duh).

The AMBUSH x Nike Air Adjust Force sneaker seemingly follows the vibe of the collaboration's Nike Dunk High rollout — which included Megan Thee Stallion-approved apparel and four Dunk drops — with "LOTS coming" for the upcoming release, per Ahn herself.

Since her first teasers in November 2021, Ahn has previewed two AMBUSH x Nike Air Adjust Force colorways, including a black/white and, most recently, white/black combo.

It's important to note that Ahn will be bringing back the Nike Air Adjust Force more than 25 years since its 1996 release.

So, there's been lots of buzz between sneaker-enthused historians who can't wait to cop the classic 90's basketball shoe, celebrated amongst college players for its hoopage appeal powered by its team-colored FitWrap straps.

Ahn does a solid job of preserving the Air Adjust Force's heritage design while bringing it to today's speed via AMBUSH revamps.

The AMBUSH x Nike Air Adjust Force touts a slightly slimmer — but still chunky nonetheless — physique as compared to its OG counterpart.

It's also worthy to point out the collaborative sneaker falls in line with Nike's Move To Zero efforts, carrying a Nike Grind sole comprised of recycled materials.

Oh, I can't forget the straps! Of course, AMBUSH keeps the models' Swoosh-stamped interchangeable straps, which can be worn with your kicks or ditched altgother. You could mix-match straps on the AMBUSH's Nike Air Adjust Force colorways — you know, for the style daredevils out there.

Then, AMBUSH's bold logo graces the heel while the Nike Swoosh pops up three times on the upper and tongue, rounding off the collaborative team effort.

I'm going to say it: Yoon Ahn has done it again with her upcoming AMBUSH x Nike Air Adjust Force — and they're not even out yet. But, with this many teasers circulating, I suspect we won't be waiting much longer for an official release date.
