Having won fashionistas over with their Thunder Spectra and Thunder Electric silhouettes, Puma have added another member to the widely-acclaimed series with the Thunder Desert. The design takes elements from ‘90s Cell System technology and Puma's previous Alexander McQueen collaborations, fusing them into a brand-new silhouette. While it seems like every high-end designer is heading into the sneaker game in 2018, Puma's joint venture with McQueen began way back in 2005, and was hugely influential on the fusion between luxury and sportswear. Now, the legacy of McQueen continues in the Thunder Desert, which takes a similar-minded approach by tip-toeing into high-fashion territory, without the hefty price tag.

  While its siblings in the Thunder family rely more on colour pops and metallic zaps, the Thunder Desert takes a much more subdued approach, championing neutral tones in nonchalant fashion. The colours are inspired by desert at dusk, channeling the vast energy of Mother Nature onto your feet. A quality blend of leather, suede and mesh makes the upper a textural wonderland, while a chunky and exaggerated midsole has layers that dip, dive and twist at every turn. Moreover, the midsole features TPU pieces for durability, while a midfoot stabiliser ensures a comfortable wear. 

Puma's iconic Formstripe reminds you that the Thunder Desert comes from a sportswear brand, but they've pounced headfirst into fashion territory for a shoe that'll outlive the chunky sneaker trend.
