One of the latest brands to challenge Balenciaga’s current chunky sneaker reign is German footwear giant PUMA with the END x PUMA Thunder Shadow Rise Black. Paying homage to ’90’s running designs and collaborations from the late Alexander McQueen, more specifically the PUMA McQ Tech Runner Lo of 2005, the END x PUMA Thunder Shadow Rise Black flawlessly fuses sports and fashion to create a sneaker that is unlike anything else currently on the market.
Made in collaboration with UK retailer END Clothing, this chunky shoe combines black nubuck and leather with a stacked white sole underfoot. The perfect setting for dual-branding, the pull tab and cork footbed find light in the shadows, with earthy wooden suedes and concrete leather overlays wrapping around the heel. An extension of the IMEVA cushioned midsole, a semi-translucent gum rubber outsole takes the sneaker to new heights.
If you’re interested in trying out the dad shoe trend without going too crazy, then the END x PUMA Thunder Shadow Rise Black is the sneaker for you. Unlike any other model currently on the market, this sneaker will surely get you noticed. We recommend you go true to size for the perfect fit!
