To coincide with the release of Marvel’s new Venom movie starring Tom Hardy, BAIT is joining forces with Marvel and Puma for an extra-special pair of Puma Cells inspired by the legendary black and white villain/hero. The new Cells feature black silicone prints on the upper, with a special drip-down effect that nods to the symbiote creature taking control of its host — just like in the movie. The remainder of the shoes are made up of white reflective material, butter-soft suede, and thick mesh. For a finishing touch, classic Venom artwork and Bait x Marvel co-branding appears on the insoles. No punches are pulled on the shoe’s packaging either, as each pair comes with a special set of custom-made bio canisters designed to “contain” the symbiote kicks. The capsule collection also consists of a reversible bomber jacket that features a silicon print on one side and a comic-style Venom graphic on the other. The shoes retail at $250 USD and will be available for pre-order with a December delivery at New York Comic Con starting October 4th — before the same pre-orders open up at BAIT’s retail locations starting October 6th. Enjoy a look at both the kicks and the jacket below, be sure to stop by BAIT’s booth if you’re at Comic Con and let us know what you think of this special comic collab as well.
