Just in time for 2018’s Sneakerness Paris event, PUMA has joined forces with founder Francky B for a special take on the Thunder runner. Inspiration was drawn from the French city of Marseille, known as “Mars” to locals. Dubbed “Astroness,” the sneaker takes cues from the surface of Mars and NASA’s original orange spacesuits for the pops of color across its muted upper, which primarily sports grey, black and white detailing. Orange panels on the sockliner and midsole pop against the understated leather and suede seen elsewhere, with the tongue tag boasting a complementary Sneakerness graphic.
The “Astroness” is limited to a mere 201 pairs — Only those at the event on September 15 and 16 will have a chance to grab one of the few available pairs for $150 USD.
Recently, the Shoe Surgeon elevated the Thunder with the hot & cold “Elements” pack.
