Size and fit

The Puma CELL Viper is offered in men’s sizing, which ranges from 7 to 13. This chunky sneaker has a low profile, which allows the ankles to have full mobility in each stride. It also uses a traditional lace-up closure in locking in the feet with a custom fit.

Puma CELL Viper Style

A blocky sneaker like the CELL Viper seamlessly fits into athleisure and casual wear. Track pants, joggers, sweatshirts to skin-fit jeans, khakis, shorts, jackets, and plain tees easily match the CELL Viper.

This Puma model comes in a wide variety of colorways, so you can pick what best suits your outfits. Colorways include Puma White/Puma White, Puma Black/Puma White, Puma White/ High-Risk Red, Puma White/Spectra Yellow, Gray Violet/Peacoat, and Puma White/Ponderosa Pine.  

Notable Features

Its upper is streamlined to fit into the minimalistic tastes of today. It looks simple and spare compared to the other models under the CELL range, which is why the CELL Viper stands out among the pack. However, despite the excellent updates, the CELL Viper’s most iconic characteristic is still its massive sole, as it proudly shows off its CELL heritage.  

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.  

Additional Info

  • Puma and CELL branding are detailed in the sidewalls, tongue, midsole, insole, outsole tread, and heel.  
  • An EVA midsole infused with CELL technology cradles the foot and delivers outstanding comfort, support, and stability.
  • It also has a well-padded collar and tongue for an instant-step in comfort.
