First Look: AMBUSH x Nike Air Force 1 Low

Even though we've been preempted by these leaks, it's still an AMBUSH.


[Update 8 Feb 2023] Official images for both the AMBUSH x Nike Air Force 1 Low “Black” and “Phantom” pairs have arrived! As earlier previewed, both colorways do not stray too far from its “Game Royal” and “Pine Green” counterparts in terms of construction.

Ahead of its 28th February launch, Yoon Ahn has revealed that a very limited first release of the upcoming “Black” and “Phantom” pairs will arrive at KITH’s New York City location, as part of its AMBUSH WORKSHOP 1 TOKYO on 11th February. Take a look through the official imagery via the top slider above and all the best if you’re looking to cop!

[Update 6 Feb 2023] After the release of the “Game Royal” and “Pine Green” pairs in Dec 2022, AMBUSH and Nike are gearing up for the release of the two earlier “Black” and “Phantom” colorways. Yoon Ahn, the founder of AMBUSH herself, has recently posted an image of the “Phantom” pair on her Instagram. Her image confirms most of what was leaked previously, giving fans a tease of what’s to come on 28th February. Stay tuned as we’ll bring you official imagery once we get our hands on them.

[Update 19 Jan 2023] Finally emerging from hiding, a release date has been announced. The AMBUSH x Nike Air Force 1 Lows in “Black” and “Phantom” are expected to drop on 28 February via Nike with a price tag of US$190. While you get your wallets ready, look at more in-depth images of these sleek pairs.


AMBUSH has been at the vanguard of many of streetwear’s biggest collaborations for the better part of the decade now. Perhaps, few as fecund as their partnership with Nike. Over the years, they’ve produced some of the most unique iterations of Nike’s staples like the Air Max 180 and the Dunk High, that introduced the extended tailpipe Swooshes.

The same component, is now reapplied to their upcoming collaboration on the Nike Air Force 1. Most of Bruce Kilgore’s design are retained, maintaining familiarity while subtly emitting a contemporary retrofitting. Aside from the aforementioned tailpipe Swooshes, AMBUSH adds a lower heel mold with their logo embossed. Dual-branding elements pervade on the tongue and the luxe metal dubraes, giving the entire aesthetic a premium construction.

So far, there’re three colorways that have surfaced: a classic “Chicago” colorway, along with two others in an alternating black and white arrangement.

There aren’t any information that have surfaced with the leaks but expect an update when word gets to us.
