Yoon Seeks Out Militaristic Inspiration for Her AMBUSH x Converse Collaboration

Yoon Ahn, co-founder of AMBUSH and men’s jewelry designer for Dior Homme, continues to bring freshness and innovation to sneakers. Her striking Air Max 180 collaboration was widely touted when it was revealed last year and will continue to be so when it releases this spring. Further, so will her newly previewed Converse collaboration.

Vindicated via her Instagram, Yoon speaks life into the high arching, All-Star framed boot by referencing its militaristic origins. They’re “inspired by vintage military winter boots Converse used to produce for US military,” she spoke, honoring the work Converse did for men and women of the Armed Forces.

Lean with snaking lines, AMBUSH at the heel and Converse logo branding at its customary position at the medial siding, a smooth utilitarian aesthetic engulfs this long boot which is styled with its laces tied around the upper. The midsole seems to feature a widened stance and is profiled with greater height.

Expected the AMBUSH x Converse All-Star Boot to release during fall/winter 2019.
