Puma’s New Take on the Thunder Silhouette is Worth a Look

Ever seen a woman wear stilettos but carry flats in her bag just in case she can no longer bear the discomfort of walking in high heels? In other instances, a man will get rid of his tie immediately on arriving home because he feels it was chocking him. Yes, comfort is essential, and it applies to every area of our lives, not just in clothes and footwear. Maybe it is this realization that has prompted Puma to release yet another iconic dad shoe for those who are all about utility and less about making a fashion statement. Here is a look at the new Thunder Silhouette.

Why a ‘dad shoe”?

When the dad sneaker craze began, everyone thought why anyone in their right mind would choose an “ugly-looking” shoe to have in their shoe closet. Well, sometimes not everything is about fashion, and there are those times you want to kick back and get comfortable. For this reason, fashion experts define a dad shoe as one that you wear because of its utility rather than style. Consequently, we can say that the Adidas Stan Smith pioneered the dad sneaker phenomenon. Therefore, when it comes to comfort over style, you would not expect women and teenagers to wear such footwear. Hence only our dads could sport these shoes. As a result, they came to be known as dad shoes.

Puma’s dad shoes

For Puma, it caught up late in the dad shoe craze yet it has been a significant player in the sportswear products. Still, it decided to give it a try. Therefore, they came up with the Puma Thunder Spectra which was to calm down the public’s outcry for an excellent dad shoe. With its release on April 2018, it premiered the Puma Thunder collection. The Thunder Spectra has several colors including hints of white, teal, blue-green, yellow, red and black. Later other silhouettes have come up; the Thunder Electric and Thunder Desert.

The latest Thunder silhouette is the TZ Metallic which is in two colorways. One of the colorways that enhances the uniqueness of these shoes is the “black/pale pink” while the other is “white/ blazing yellow.” While each silhouette has brought with it a few changes, none of the previous three have made quite a retouch of the features as the Thunder TZ Metallic.

Zipper instead of laces

Almost every sneaker has shoe laces which help to fasten the shoes when they are a size bigger or if you prefer your feet to have a little breathing space, you can loosen up the laces. As for the trailblazer, the most notable thing you will notice is that the shoe does not have laces. Instead, it comes with a medial zipper which makes it a worthy addition to any collection of a woman’s sneakers. Besides, if you are worried about being unable to wear your shoes without a struggle, the hell pull tab ensures that you can easily slip in and out of the silhouette.

Size

Puma has taken into consideration almost all sizes with its range of measurements specific to the Trailblazer metallic silhouette. For as long as your feet are within 5.5 inches (22 cm) to 11 inches (27.5 cm), then you can rest assured that you will find a sneaker perfect for you.

Branding

Of course, Puma has to let you distinguish between the knockoffs that someone might try to sell you from the real deal. This distinction is made possible through the branding they have put across the top of the sneakers. The inner soles also have the Puma branding both in the wordmark “Puma” and the image of a leaping puma.

Rubber outsole

The Thunder Trailblazer has a rubber outsole which enhances the shoe’s traction. Since it is a dad shoe, comfort is of the essence, and with rubber soles, the shoes offer the wearer immediate comfort, full waterproofing as well as the convenience of being slip-resistant. Besides it is much lighter which adds to its usefulness as a dad shoe.

Midfoot stabilizer

Most people have the misconception that a soft inner sole is better than a hard one, thinking it cushions the feet much better. With the TZ Metallic midfoot stabilizer, you can not only stabilize your feet, but it offers you shock absorption failure to which you would suffer heel pain or a bruised heel.

Price and release date

The Thunder Trailblazer was released on February 8, 2019, at a retail price of $ 120.
