The Thunder wave continues to disrupt as PUMA releases the latest instalment in the sports fashion chunky sneaker range – the Thunder Desert. While the debut Thunder Spectra took on a bold statement with its retro colour blocking and neon pops, the new Thunder Desert comes in a subdued look with a tonal colour scheme that mimics the hues of the desert at dusk.
Still very expressive, it retains the signature exaggerated tooling, blown-up proportions and a material mix of premium suede, textured leather and mesh. The Thunder pays homage to past collabs and silhouettes ahead of their time. Inspired by 90s Cell System running silhouettes and the PUMA x McQueen collaboration, the style is a re-imagined pair of kicks with a bulky, unapologetic look and feel.
