Puma has been releasing plenty of new heat all year long, but one pair we’re really excited about is the Puma Thunder Spectra. We’ve known about the shoe for a few months now, but this is the first time that Puma themselves give us an official look.

The Puma Thunder Spectra is a shoe for the new era of sports fashion. The Thunder pays homage to past collaborations and silhouettes ahead of their time. Inspired by 90s running silhouettes and the PUMA x McQueen collaboration, the style is a reimagined pair of kicks with a bulky, unapologetic look and feel. The exaggerated tooling, the blown-up proportions and the loud color blocking really allow the Thunder to stand out among its competition. Simply put, the Thunder Spectra takes an unconventional approach to design that break focus and commands attention.

The Puma Thunder Spectra comes with features such as mesh and nubuck  on the upper done in Black, Red, Yellow and Blue paired up with a moulded TPU system. Puma vibes are present by way of the Puma formstripe that runs parallel along the lateral sides of the shoe. The medial sides opts for more a fashion-like finish. A wavy chunk midsole utilizing three colors and minimal Puma branding on the heel and tongue complete the look of the Puma Thunder Spectra.

The Puma Thunder Spectra in the colorway you see above will release at select retailers on April 28th for $120. Don’t sleep on these!
