Nike has been lacing us up with some stunning collaborations this year. Thanks to the Swoosh label teaming up with numerous distinctive designers, artists, and brands, we’ve been graced with some seriously slick sneakers. Among the glittering highlights were the refreshing Jarritos x Nike SB Dunk, showcasing hemp canvas overlays mingling with invigorating orange and green hues, not to mention the city-exclusive colourways introduced by Cortez x Nike Air Max 95. However, another solid Nike sneaker collab to hit the market this year has been the AMBUSH x Nike Air More Uptempo.
Nike partnered up with the luxury streetwear brand AMBUSH this year to bring us yet another collaborative sneaker release. Yoon Ahn, the pioneering founder and creative engine behind AMBUSH, first offered fans a tantalising glimpse of this collaboration back in April. The beige “Limestone” version of the shoe, modelled by Ahn herself, hit the shelves in August and now, the next exhilarating chapter of the collaboration is about to unfold. This time, sneakerheads will get to cop the AMBUSH x Nike Air More Uptempo collab sneaker in a sleek “Black/White” colourway.
With on-foot images by Yoon Ahn herself, you can get a better look at the Nike Air More Uptempo Low “Black/White” and decide whether these sleek black sneakers warrant a spot in your collection. The jet-black and white colourway is the epitome of sophisticated style, blending effortlessly with any outfit.
These shoes showcase their elegance in a pitch-black nubuck top paired perfectly with mesh tongues and white-outlined “AIR” lettering. The white accents embellishing the Swoosh logos, midsole, heels, and outsole contribute bold visual contrasts, with the heel of the midsole proudly emblazoned with the AMBUSH logo.
The black rope-like laces and pull tabs on the heels sport matching reflective detailing. Underfoot, the sole unit of the Air More Uptempo features a full-length black Air unit and a matching black outer sole unit. These details create a cohesive and eye-catching design that seamlessly blends the unique aesthetics of both Nike and Ambush.
For those interested in grabbing a pair of these stylish black sneakers, the AMBUSH x Nike Air More Uptempo “Black/White” will be released on October 6th alongside the “Lilac Apple Green” version. The drop will happen at 10:00 EST via Nike SNKRS and select retailers for $190 USD in men’s sizes. With their classic colour scheme and unique silhouette, these sneakers are sure to make a statement in any sneaker collection.
