Yoon Ahn Conjures Element of Surprise in Converse x Ambush Collaboration

October 09, 2019 - Much like its moniker, Ambush, founder Yoon Ahn’s first collaboration with Converse capitalizes on the element of surprise with new takes on two classic sport styles: the Converse Chuck 70 and Pro Leather. 

Both are reconceived with inspiration from the Extreme Cold Weather Boot, a rubber military boot produced by Converse in the 1950s, to bring Ambush’s signature exaggerated styling to the traditionally canvas and leather silhouettes. 

With its heightened platform midsole, the Chuck 70 is clad with embellished rubber layering. The shoe’s coconut-milk colored rubberized upper features matte detailing, a gusseted tongue for stability and insulation and matching laces for a monochromatic expression.

The collection sees Ahn become one of the first designers to completely rework the Pro Leather. She transforms the classic basketball shoe by employing a black rubberized upper with tonal 3D Converse Star Chevron logo, gusseted tongue and monochromatic black laces. The look is sharpened by cyber yellow instructional Ambush branding on the elevated heel. 

Converse x Ambush is available October 19 at converse.com and select retailers.
