Rihanna’s Creeper silhouette in collaboration with PUMA is being honored with the title “Shoe of the Year” by Footwear News.

At the 30th FN Achievement Awards, Rihanna will be taking the crown from previous winner Kanye West, who was celebrated last year for his adidas Originals YEEZY 350 Boost.

Speaking on the shoe’s new title, Rihanna noted “In my wildest dreams, I never would have imagined an honor like ‘shoe of the year.’ It means so much to me to make a mark like this in the shoe and sneaker industry and to have so many people share my love for the creeper.”

The Barbadian pop singer joins the ranks of other winners Paul Andrew (Designer of the Year Award), Iris Apfel (Icon Award), Aldo Bensadoun (Lifetime Achievement Award), fashion maven at Bergdorf Goodman Linda Fargo (Hall of Fame Inductee), and adidas North America president Mark King (Person of the Year Award).
