Model: Thunder Electric
Key Features: The sneaker’s chunky but athletic shape and bold ’90s-esque color pops fuse sporty elements with a fashion-forward aesthetic.
Giving the shoe its heavyset appearance, a molded TPU midsole sits beneath a premium mesh and nubuck upper. A black PUMA formstrip along the side provides subtle branding amid the multi-colored panels.
Release Date: June 21
Buy: PUMA & select stockists worldwide
Editor’s Notes: After the first iteration of PUMA’s Thunder line, the Thunder Spectra, found huge success, the German sportswear brand is releasing two new colorways of the popular model.
Dubbed “Thunder Electric” because of how the sneaker’s design apparently “reflects the electrifying power of lightning,” the new colorways look set to be as popular as the first. Perfectly on-trend with its overblown tooling and exaggerated silhouette, the $120 price point makes it perfect for those looking to get in on the chunky sneaker trend but not looking to rinse their savings in the process.
