Nike have officially taken the wraps off the upcoming Air Max 180 collaboration from AMBUSH. Part of Yoon Ahn's collaborative collection with the Swoosh, the kicks celebrate one of Yoon's favourite silhouettes.
'The Air Max 180 is the first pair of sneakers I ever bought with my own money,' says Yoon, who copped the kicks by saving money from her chores and work at the local library. 'I wanted it so badly, having seen it in the pages of a magazine.'
The bold re-work is highlighted by the addition of a zippered shroud as a nod to the Air Zoom Flight. As Yoon notes, '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.'
The AMBUSH x Nike apparel drops December 6, while the AM180 is due to touch down sometime in the early months of 2019.
