As we’ve seen in recent months, the “ugly sneaker” or the “dad shoe” is the new craze. Making a statement is the new PUMA Thunder Spectra, which forms part of the PUMA X McQueen collaboration. The silhouette is a re-imagined pair of kicks from the ’90s with a bulky, unapologetic look and feel.
Tapping into the chunky sneaker trend making waves on international runways, the Thunder Spectra takes an unconventional approach to design that breaks focus and commands attention. The Thunder pays homage to the look of the 90s, with past collabs ahead of their time. Featuring exaggerated tooling, blown-up proportions and loud colour-blocking in red, yellow and blue – reserving a spot for the Thunder on the international runways.
This is a countermovement, a new era of sports fashion. This is Thunder Spectra, which takes an unconventional approach to design that breaks focus and commands attention. Apart from the styling, the material includes various mixes and bright accents.
The PUMA Thunder Spectra is set to drop exclusively at Shelflife on 28 April 2018 and will be available at R2,499. The sneaker will be re-released at PUMA Stores later in May – packing the power of a storm.
