Yoon Ahn, Ambush co-founder teams up with Nike on a collaborative collection that consists of the Air Max 180, as well as a variety clothing options.
For footwear, Yoon chose to work with the Air Max 180, a silhouette for which she has an unbreakable emotional attachment to. “The Air Max 180 is the first pair of sneakers I ever bought with my own money. I wanted it so badly, having seen it in the pages of a magazine,” says Yoon, who saved by balancing home chores with work in her local library.
Her design takes the iconic runner to a new dimension by mixing it with elements of another Nike classic, the Air Zoom Flight. “When I visited the Nike archive, I saw the Glove. It looks so cozy, so comfortable from afar. I wanted to capture that feeling and fully wrap the foot,” Yoon notes.
This Air Max 180 gets a futuristic Ambush revamp with a White zip-up shroud atop an Air Max 180 midsole. A Black Nike Ambush co-branding is seen on the Bright Orange insole. Alongside the Ambush x Nike Air Max 180 will be matching apparel that gets its release this year.
