Model: Dunk High
Release Date: December 11 (Black/White), January 14 (Pink)
Editor’s Notes: Following the release of Yoon Ahn's AMBUSH x Nike Dunk High in Black/White last month, the eye-catching all-pink colorway is set to be released on January 14.
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.
