The Ambush family strives to build and cultivate the local community and give people an opportunity to do what they love. As stated in the previous Ambush Alumni post with Ryan Dearth, we have been so lucky to have such an amazing group of people come through our doors and work with us. Allow us to introduce another one of them to you!
Meet Juston Tucker. Juston grew up 20 minutes from the shop in the Acworth area, and worked for us between 2000 and 2002. Shortly after leaving Ambush, Juston moved to California and began working in the marketing deprtment for Podium Distribution. Podium Distribution, at the time, was the home of DVS, Lakai and Matix. Juston left marketing and now designs footwear full time. When asked about how he made the switch from marketing to footwear design Juston said:
“I was working in the marketing department at Podium and one of my good friends was the design director for footwear. He asked me to help color up some shoes for the season. Everyone really liked my vision, and my approach, so they offered me a full-time footwear job a few months later.”
