Puma will always be connected with Adidas as the founders of both giants are brothers. The stories of how both shoe manufacturers started are pretty much the same until 1948.

After successfully gaining popularity as quality athletic shoes, brothers Rudolf and Adolf Dassler had a falling out and separated ways. Adolf continued on with Adidas, while Rudolf started his own company.

Rudolf initially calling the company Ruda, mimicking Adidas, then later on Puma.

Riding the bandwagon of incorporating revolutionary technologies in running shoes, Puma released the Puma CELL technology. This technology is created from blow-molded polyurethane elastomer (TPU) that is configured in hexagonal cells. Putting these cells allowed for engineer cushioning and stability for runners.

The Puma Cell Endura was initially released in 1998 as a running shoe together with CELL-infused models, Puma Cell Venom and Puma Cell Alien, and was well-received mostly by distance runners.

To mark the 20th anniversary of this technology, Puma released various versions of the Puma CELL models in 2018.

  • Insoles are lined with textile for a softer feel on foot.
  • Puma branding on the tongue pull tab allows for easy putting on.
