PUMA is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Cell Alien by bringing back the retro sneaker in the coveted OG black and blue colorway. To commemorate the release, UNDEFEATED has tapped Compton-born rapper Buddy to model the sneaker for its Castro Clifton-photographed editorial.
The return of the Cell Alien follows the Cell Endura and Cell Venom from PUMA's Cell line. The silhouette features a mesh-based upper with leather overlays including the Formstripe on the sides. The brand's Cell cushioning technology is of course still present, as the hexagonal cells at the heel provide the wearer with added protection.
The Cell Alien returns in OG form exclusively at UNDEFEATED stores and online on May 4, followed by a wider release on May 16. Retailing for $110, expect other colorways to launch soon.
