Tokyo-based fashion label AMBUSH teamed up with Nike to add an abstract twist to the Dunk High silhouette with the Nike Dunk High Ambush Black. This collaboration draws its inspiration from Japanese bike, car, and truck culture, which explains the re-imagined proportions on the silhouette that almost make it look aerodynamic. Features like the extended Swoosh and prominent heel counter nod to the extended tail pipes and lifted rear chassis of motorcycles and trucks.
The Nike Dunk High Ambush Black arrives with a white and black leather upper in traditional color blocking (a design format similar to early Nike Dunk releases in 1985), and an exaggerated Swoosh that extends beyond the heel. Outside of the re-imagined Swoosh, other features differentiate this design from traditional Nike Dunks like a raised heel counter with significant separation on the back of the shoe, revealing a larger amount of white leather panelling, and an extended black plastic unit donning Ambush branding encapsulates the heel. An exposed foam tongue, white sole, and co-branded tongue tag complete this design.
The Nike Dunk High Ambush Black released in December of 2020 and retailed for $180.
