How to buy Ambush x Nike Air Adjust Force sneakers
Now that the world is (finally) jaded with the Dunks, there’s room for another Swoosh-adorned silhouette to return from the depths of the Nike archives and take the sneaker throne. Yoon Ahn is making the case for the Nike Air Adjust Force — a 1996 model once championed by college basketball players — by revitalizing the silhouette through his esteemed Tokyo-based label Ambush. As usual, the Korean-American visionary is almost certainly onto something.
Unless you were an avid sneaker collector or basketball player in the mid-’90s, this will likely be your first experience with the retro-futuristic silhouette. Without a doubt, the most outstanding element of the instep is the “Fitwrap” which wraps a significant fraction of the midfoot area. The velcro overlay can be removed and attached on different iterations of the shoe, meaning you can customize them to match your #OOTD. To some extent, at least.

Of course, the Ambush x Nike Air Adjust Force isn’t the first shoe born out of the collaboration – there was the Dunk High with the protruding Swoosh and the very Westworld Air Max 180 – but maybe it’s the best. Especially since Ahn’s revitalized version of the shoe will be available in such a desirable selection of colorways – viz. ‘black/psychic purple’, ‘summit white/black’, ‘university blue’ and ‘light madder root’. Not to mention, the outsole is made from Nike Grind, a recycled material formed from surplus materials and unsellable footwear.
Convinced you could pull off a pair? You’re not alone. For a chance to grab a pair of either of the first two colorways – ‘Black/Psychic Purple’ or ‘Summit White/Black’ – for the fairly justifiable retail price of £189.95, you’ll need to enter the raffle. releases on the Nike SNKRS app at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, August 19. To make sure you don’t forget, look for the shoe in the ‘Coming Soon’ tab in the app and hit the ‘Notify Me’ button to get a reminder a little early.
Alternatively, you can skip all of the above and grab a pair of StockX at present. Sure, the price is slightly steep, but at least you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you’ll be rocking them before anyone else. Well, everyone except Yoon Ahn herself.
