Puma Thunder Spectra: Puma’s black dad shoe with colourful accents
A trend in the trainer world that you can’t have missed: everybody’s talking about “dad shoes”, especially as Puma has followed in the footsteps of brands like Nike and Adidas and is now in the running with their latest take on the dad shoe. The Puma Thunder not only takes cues from 90’s aesthetics but is also inspired by a former partnership between Puma and fashion designer Alexander McQueen.
The Puma Spectra is a textbook example of a dad shoe.
“Dad shoe” or “chunky trainer”, whatever you want to call this trend, one thing is clear - we’re referring to this year’s craze. The Puma Thunder Spectra can almost be considered historically important, as it’s the first dad shoe released by the German brand. Those of you familiar with Puma will automatically recognise that these kicks clearly pay tribute to the shoes designed by Alexander McQueen in 2005. The fashion designer attracted attention back then, and now the time has definitely come for his Puma trainers to be revived, with some new details.
Even the colourway on the Puma Thunder Spectra lives up to its name. The black upper is capped off with bold colours, placed sparingly throughout the shoe. At first glance your eyes are drawn to red, yellow and blue tones, but after a second look, you can also spot a little teal. Staying true to the dad shoe style, the trainer features a bulky sole with teal highlights to lend a modern touch, giving the perfect contrasting effect. The Puma Spectra is a trainer that lets you capture vibrant lightning bolts in the night like no other shoe. These shoes will guarantee envious stares from others, thanks in particular to their bulky construction which is a real head-turner.
Puma Thunder – eye-catching design meets pure high-tech innovation
This trendy trainer is chunky and sports an upper made from a combination of mesh, suede and leather. The famous Puma branding is found both on the tongue and the label at the back of the heel. The innovative midsole guarantees ultimate cushioning, whether you are actually wearing the shoe when training or for a casual daytime look. The Puma Thunder Spectra is a modern statement that also promises to be a real treat for your feet.
