Puma CELL Viper History

Like it or not, the thick-soled dad shoe trend is growing stronger, almost evolving even. Dad shoes or trainers have become staples in front of our eyes. Brands like Puma are coming up with designs to catch up with this ever-growing trend. Puma rose up to the occasion and brought back the archived CELL range, which perfectly fits into today’s dad and ugly sneaker trend.

The CELL range first saw the light in the late ’90s, in the form of its pinnacle models, the Endura and Venom. These sneakers bore the CELL technology, which was designed to deliver maximum cushioning and stability to runners. The CELL sneakers reemerged in 2018 and aimed to hit the streets and show off their hefty style. Then an entirely new silhouette has appeared alongside them. That is the CELL Viper, a reimagined, updated CELL design to fit the sneaker needs of today.
