Yoon Ahn of AMBUSH is coming off a collection with the Swoosh for the Tokyo Summer Olympics alongside fellow heavy-hitters such as Virgil Abloh, Chitose Abe, and Jun Takahashi and it looks like more is in the works between AMBUSH and Nike with a potential collaboration on the ’90s basketball sneaker Nike Air Adjust Force.
The Nike Air Adjust Force featured a modular strap that used Nike’s Fitwrap technology, that the shoe can be worn with or without and can be swapped with different color straps to fit your team’s uniform or just fit overall. Mostly worn by high schoolers and college players, such as a young Vince Carter at UNC, the Nike Air Adjust Force featured a large Air Max unit in the heel and was an extremely popular shoe for those that grew up hooping in the ’90s.
Posted to her Instagram, she gave a look at her trip to the Nike World Headquarters where she gave a sneak peek at the sole of the Nike Air Adjust Force, which looks to be reworked with Nike Grind rubber. She also gave a sneak peek at her mood board, which features a photo of the Nike Fun Police, which was a Nike Basketball ad that ran during the mid to late ’90s and featured the likes of Kevin Garnett, Gary Payton, Jason Kidd, and others. Lastly, she flexed wearing a pair of the speculative sneaker which featured AMBUSH branding on the heel, and showed it off in a video.
There’s no official release info on the AMBUSH x Nike Air Adjust Force, but keep it locked to Nice Kicks for all the latest news in the sneaker world.
