Its chunky, round-toed silhouette alone gives any outfit that sought-after pop.

Also, the CELL Enduras come in surprisingly smooth colorways, such as Puma White/Blazing Yellow, Glacier Gray/High-Risk Red, Puma White/Classic Green, White/Green/Black, and Mita’s “Asphalt.” Because of this, one can pair the Cell Enduras with light-washed colors or khakis.
Aside from its overall beefy structure and bubbly midsole, which the eyes couldn’t ignore, the CELL Endura has still got some exciting details that make it a unique sneaker. These details appear clearer upon a second look. Like the hexagonal outsole pattern, whose cells look like a transparent beehive, and the Puma branding detail on its heel tab, which has some subtle reflective hit to it.
Puma CELL Endura History
Puma first introduced the CELL Endura in 1998, a pinnacle sneaker of the CELL range. The brand had developed the CELL technology to provide stable cushioning when running. The molded TPU in a hexagonal cell pattern delivered this stability, which also gave this model its trademark look and made it an icon.
On October 4, 2018, Puma had reissued the CELL Endura, bringing it back in its OG White/Green colorway while updating it with new materials and production methods, such as digital stitching. In collaboration with Mita Japan, Puma also debuted the “Asphalt” colorway exclusively in Hypefest 2018.
