Puma Thunder Surf The Web
The Men’s Thunder sneaker collection is a fitting tribute to one of Puma’s greatest collaboration. It features an unapologetic feel that is made more pronounced by its bulky look. The silhouettes may be that of the 90s, but the Thunder still has the form that can shake up today’s ultra-modern sneakers.
In the 90s, Puma introduced the revolutionary CELL cushioning system. The Thunder still has the same technology but is several notches more advanced. It now features the IMEVA midsole, a technology that is unique in itself. Following in the tradition of the CELL system, the IMEVA provides lightweight comfort. It is a feature that will benefit everyone today. Given that the once-lowly sneaker is now everyday wear, the IMEVA puts comfort well at par with performance.
What is interesting in the Thunder is that it has an upper that features a blend of three different materials. It’s a very unusual design composition, but one that surprisingly works. The mesh upper guarantees more breathable comfort while the leather and suede overlays give the material something more unique to talk about.
Puma also redesigned the Thunder’s outsole, making it more robust, beefy, and stocky. The shoe’s exaggerated outsole also comes with bold color block styling. It is as if it wants you to look at it. This is a footwear that is never shy to scream for attention. And it does so in style. There are humongous side walls that protect the shoe from the elements. The midsole features a number of reliable TPU pieces that work well with the midfoot stabilizer system.
The Thunder sneaker is one of Puma’s Futro designs. Hence, you can always expect the successful marriage between the brand’s glorious past and its envisioned future. This is a sneaker that’s steeped in history and allowed to mellow for the future.
