Returning in its original form, the Puma Cell Alien features a white mesh upper that's accented by black leather overlays along with a blue Formstripe on the sides, which sits atop a white midsole and a yellow hexagonal Cell air bubble on the heel.
The Cell Alien is not to be mistaken as part of the "dad shoe" trend still looming in the sneaker space. "The dad shoe is trying to be offensive and chunky. The Cell Alien came from an era where you really wanted to show off, while dad shoe tried to be conservative. The Cell franchise always tried to be innovative with new shapes, new aesthetics, and a new design language," according to Erman Aykurt, Creative Director of PUMA Sportstyle.
