When PUMA first revealed the Thunder Spectra earlier this year, the sneaker community instantly took note; the brand was clearly doing something undeniably PUMA but also undeniably new all at the same time. Despite liking it in the first place, the chunky silhouette has grown on us since its initial release and we’re excited to have spotted the new PUMA Thunder Desert cropping up over on the ‘gram.
While the Thunder Spectra debuted in bold colors reminiscent of the early ‘90s, the Thunder Desert is a more subdued tonal pack, its colors allude to the hues of the desert at dusk. The sneaker’s signature shape remains with a material mix of suede, textured leather, and mesh.
Drawing on the label’s history of performance models and in particular its work with the late Alexander McQueen on the McQ range and the Tech Runner Low, the Thunder is a bulky shoe that feeds our current craving for chunky silhouettes and divisive fashion statements.
Thanks to its minimalist color palette, the Desert pack has plenty of styling potential and Instagram’s fashionistas have already been featuring it in their unique ‘fits. Check out the looks below and tell us which is your favorite in the comments at the bottom.
