Brand: PUMA

Model: Thunder Spectra

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 amidst the yellow, blue, red, and grey panels.

Release Date: The shoe is re-stocking for Black Friday on November 23. This follows the original launch on April 28, plus an initial re-stock on May 25, 2018.

Price: $120

Buy: PUMA online, as well as physical PUMA retailers, Foot Locker, Shoe Palace and other select retailers to be announced shortly.

Editor’s Notes: Since images leaked online back in February 2018, PUMA’s Thunder Spectra, the brand’s entrant into the chunky sneaker market, has been a definite hit among mainstream sneakerheads as well as tastemakers.

Now, finally, we are blessed with another re-stock of the Thunder Spectra. Arriving on November 23 (that's Black Friday), the chunky sneaker comes in at a very affordable $120. Considering it’s been touted as the wallet-friendly competitor to the likes of Gucci, Balenciaga, and other high-end chunky sneakers, the price point and the sneaker’s already incredibly popular design could be indicative of a successful future.

In addition, the model pays homage to PUMA’s collaborations with the late Alexander McQueen, as well as old-school ’90s running silhouettes.
