Dunk High x AMBUSH
This collaboration with Tokyo-based fashion label AMBUSH is finally set to be released after making an appearance on the runway in New York earlier this year. AMBUSH® founder Yoon Ahn, as the first female designer to partner with Nike and the National Basketball Association (NBA), delivers a vibrant creation defined by signature, co-branded detailing and basketball-inspired aesthetics. The Dunk’s original proportions are re-imagined in recognition of Japanese bike, car and truck culture, with Swooshes extending beyond the heel like bike pipes. “I thought, ‘How can I make the shoes almost look like this moving thing?'”, says Ahn. The answer is s prominent heel counter showcases an embossed wordmark on the shoe’s rear, with co-branded sockliners and tongue tags providing an additional, subtle twist on classic features.
