PUMA Thunder Spectra | Launching 28.04.18

Combining McQ's rebellious design heritage with Puma's legacy of performance innovation.

The Thunder Spectra is Puma’s latest trend-relevant bulky silhouette Inspired by Puma's 90s running archive and Alexander McQueen Collaborations.

Back in 2005 when PUMA by Alexander McQueen was launched, The legendary late designer himself had form, he might have been best known for his extraordinary runway extravaganzas and exquisite craftsmanship, but McQ was often always spotted in sneakers.

As an innovator in the world of sport PUMA praised McQueen for his ability to juxtapose creative influences and push boundaries. McQueen's vision enabled the brand to break rules in future orientated sportswear, mixing the theatrical world of McQueen with the complexity of PUMA's performance engineering.

In fusing sport and fashion, the new Thunder Spectra's athletic shape is given additional structure with the use of a moulded TPU system atop premium mesh and nubuck to create an unequalled rib-cage effect in stark, contrasting colours. The PUMA form-stripe runs parallel along the lateral sides of the shoe whilst the medial sides portray more a fashion-like aesthetic.

The PUMA Thunder Spectra is launching online on Saturday 28th April (available online at 8:00AM BST). Sizes range from UK6 - UK12 (including half sizes), priced at £110.
