Converse Thunderbolt Ultra – Woven Comfort

Retro inspiration, re-designed for comfort you want now.

Born in running, the original Thunderbolt was designed for speed. We took that essence of lightweight comfort and combined it with our focus on modern design, with the end result being the Thunderbolt Ultra. Inspired by our track and field history, this is a sneaker that firmly focuses on what’s possible for today’s comfort.

 

 

The Thunderbolt Ultra is what happens when modern design gets a hold of a classic running sneaker. It features a tightly woven upper and internal neoprene bootie for an easy, comfortable fit. The injected unit sole with a Nike Lunarlon drop-in provides comfort that you wouldn’t expect from a five star hotel, let alone a sneaker. This is comfort you want right now, inspired by the past.

Features: 

Tightly woven upper for breathability and comfort

• Internal neoprene half bootie for an easy fit

• Injected unit sole with Nike Lunarlon for cushioning

• Nike Hyperfuse construction and overlays for durability and support.

 

The Converse Thunderbolt Ultra comes in Casino Red, Blue Soar and Black and is now available at Converse Menlyn, Gateway Mall, Mall of Africa and Sandton City stores as well as selected retailers.
