Yoon Ahn and the Swoosh have been going steady ever since 2018. And in the five years since their relationship began, the AMBUSH designer has had the opportunity to redesign some of the most prolific sneakers of all-time. Her latest project, too, is based off a much-beloved Nike icon — namely, the Air More Uptempo.
The Nike Air More Uptempo has received quite a bit of attention over the course of the last few years. Back in 2020, for example, the silhouette was referenced by Cactus Plant Flea Market for their Air Force 1. Now, AMBUSH is putting their spin on the Wilson Smith-designed classic, dressing it up in a relatively straightforward colorway. Next to its blacked-out midsole and matching accents, the pair constructs its upper almost entirely out of what looks to be a tan nubuck. The branding atop, such as the various “AMBUSH” hits as well as the shoe’s signature bubble letters, are then highlighted in a bright yellow.
Enjoy a very early look at the AMBUSH x Nike Air More Uptempo ahead and stay tuned for further updates.
