Update May 31, 2022: AMBUSH fans have been patiently waiting for the collaborative Nike Air Adjust Force that was revealed by Yoon Ahn earlier this year. Finally, a closer look has surfaced! Peep the imagery from @solebyjc below and stay locked for drop details.
After AMBUSH and Nike's co-created take on the Air Adjust Force was revealed back in November 2021, AMBUSH co-founder Yoon Ahn has shown a second colourway of the collaborative sneaker. Where the first pair was done up in black and white with a colourful FitWrap strap, this second style flips the script with a white and black colourway plus more subtle strap embellishments.
The Air Adjust Force first debuted in 1996 and was centred around the above-mentioned FitWrap strap, a removable, interchangeable midfoot overlay that offered customisable support and colour options. Because of these interchangeable colours, it was a popular choice of college hoop squads, with both Vince Carter and Jason Terry taking to the hardwood in the model during their collegiate careers. In the NBA, Alonzo Mourning was known to have a soft spot for the model, and on TV, Martin Lawrence wore it in Martin.
AMBUSH's take on the original model is largely unchanged from the original iteration, though it does add some special branding to the heel and sustainable NikeGrind rubber to the outsole. There's no telling how many of the modular straps it'll come with, but so far we've seen the strap in black with iridescent purple detailing (on the aforementioned first pair to be revealed) and white with black (this pair).
At the time of writing, we're still awaiting information on a release date. However, more details are likely to surface soon – and we'll be sure to update you as soon as they do.
