Early this year, Puma burst onto the scene with the announcement of a new silhouette. Titled the Thunder Spectra, the chunky runner was a surprise hit, but hard to get. Now, Puma has disclosed that the stellar sneaker will return later this month.

Puma has made a strong comeback in recent years. Their extensive archive of classic silhouettes is reaching some serious milestones, like the Puma Suede’s 50th Anniversary last year. However, Puma is still looking to push themselves into the future, and with the current trends looking into the past, what better time than now to create some beautiful retro-inspired models?

The Puma Thunder Spectra is a very serious shot at tackling the oversized sneaker market. First introduced earlier this year, the initial response from consumers was overwhelming. Citing inspirations from their own archives as well as collaborations with Alexander McQueen, Puma’s new over-designed runner is gaining traction with the sneaker community. The Thunder Spectra begins with a plain mesh base for the upper, though the shoe is anything but understated. Building upon the mesh, Puma chose a smooth suede in yellow, red, and teal to cover the mid and heel sections of the new silhouette. Next, a smooth black leather protects the toe box and showcases the classic Puma arch across the quarter panels. Finally, the Thunder Spectra is finished off by a space-age midsole. Using jagged lines and a mix of black, white, and hits of light blue, the wild midsole design gives the Spectra a retro-future look.


The original colorway of the new Puma Thunder Spectra will return on May 25th, 2018. Sizes will be restocked both at Puma and select retailers for $120, so keep your eyes peeled.
