Ever since Rihanna took the reigns in PUMA’s creative team late last year, we’ve loved everything about the feline’s revival.
Her first sneaker design for the PUMA by RIHANNA collection launched in September to a horde of, equal parts RiRi and sneaker-obsessed fans. The shoe, known as the Creeper, sold out within hours and it’s no surprise why.
Paying homage to the iconic Suede, the PUMA Creeper maintains the classic upper construction we all love but has an added touch of RiRi rebel: a punk platform sole. The first drop featured black, black/white and tan however, after months of spotting the star sporting the creeper sneaker in various other colourways, we’ve had word that these fresh hues have finally been made available to the commoners, and we couldn’t be more pleased.
The latest release includes three equally lust-worthy options: peacoat/cool blue, offwhite/gum and coral pink/green, but we have a sneaking suspicion that they won’t last long. Already sold out online in the United States, you may be able to nab one downunder if you get in quick. Try picking up a pair at Platypus Shoes or scour other PUMA sneaker retailers. Can’t decide between cool blue or coral pink to better channel your inner RiRi? Check out the highly coveted sneakers below.
