Yoon Ahn the founder of AMBUSH has just teased us with the Nike Dunk High collab in “Deep Royal Blue,” and after Ahn’s teaser we have insight into the shoe. Offering up a sporty, no-frills mixture of royal blue, white and black and extended Swooshes inspired by motorcycle tailpipes, Ahn’s new Nike Dunk collaboration serves as an apt follow-up to her AMBUSH x Nike Dunk High “Cosmic Fucsia” from January.
High-cut uppers combine white leather toeboxes, quarter panels and collars with eponymous “Deep Royal Blue” mudguards, eyestays, heels and collar trim. An interesting assemblage is provided on the rear, as the top of the collar and heel’s bottom half extend further than the white leather middle piece.
The shoe’s key detail, however, is supplied by its above-mentioned Swoosh, which besides extending beyond the heel is rubberized and done up in black. More black appears on the waxed laces and collar trim. The white tongue features exposed foam construction, and boasts blue Swoosh branding on its badge. Down below, blue heel clips are stamped with embossed AMBUSH text hits. Sail midsoles and blue outsoles round off the look.
