Summer, please leave. We need fall now.
Puma recently launched its newest mainstream silhouette, the Thunder Desert sneaker. An addition to the chunky “dad” footwear trend, the shoe has an eye-catching appearance with its mixture of leather, mesh and suede textures. The Thunder Desert comes complete with its chunky sole, which emulates a 1990s cell-system running shoe. I personally love footwear with pull tabs because I’m constantly on the run. The faster I can pull off my kicks, the better.
One aspect that stood out to me upon receiving these sneakers: the lace-up style. Perhaps it’s the thick-roped laces that drew my eyes to the way it’s uniquely threaded. You can choose to either tie a cute bow, or find a way to loop the laces into the tongue. I opted for the Natural Vachetta colorway, although Puma also released this in a Smoke Green tone.
It’s exciting to see how brands cater to the latest fashion trends with different styles that embody each company. You can buy what’s left of Puma’s inventory, or check out suppliers such as Nordstrom, Six02 or Lady Foot Locker to cop in time for leafy season.
Ps. I realized how tan I am while taking these pictures 😂
