PUMA‘s next collaborative release comes in the form of a gleaming CELL Venom model. Dubbed “Radiant Venom,” the silhouette is tweaked by Berlin’s Overkill and inspired by conspiracy theories surrounding Y2K. The retailer shares the fictional tale of Berlin’s aftermath following a computer failure on New Year’s Eve which led to all nuclear missiles being launched on the planet and skipping ahead to the year 19100.

Overkill takes the PUMA CELL Venom and applies a mix of blue, toxic neon yellow and white throughout its layered upper. In addition, the combination of suede, mesh and smooth leather are also spread throughout the sneaker’s base. Lastly, reflective hits join the collaboration alongside Overkill insignias on the lateral and medial sides. The result is a post-apocalyptic, semi-futuristic trainer that’s not unfitting of our current trends of chunky sneakers with vibrant color choices.

The Overkill PUMA CELL Venom “Radiant Venom” will release in-store and online on March 29 for approximately $160 USD.

In related PUMA news, the collaborative Jannik Davidsen x PUMA Alteration PN-1 sneaker takes on a more distressed, minimalistic approach.
