To say that Rihanna has had a successful run with her FENTY collection for PUMA is an understatement worthy of a bitch-betta-have-my-money slap across the face. The singer and the sportswear brand have churned out singular pieces of footwear like a factory of fabulous, delivering one win after another. This summer alone has seen the futuristic Trainer, a camo-laden Creeper sneaker, and ultra-chic furry pool slides in multiple colors. And now the latest entry in this series has arrived: an uber-cool sneaker boot that is ready for both the club and the runway.
This unisex sneaker-boot is not for the faint of heart. It has been adorned with enough zippers and studs to make even S&M-Rihanna swoon. Everything you see is stacked on to a platform midsole, though the eye is of course drawn to said zipper (worn exposed on the side) and studs (padded on hiking-boot style). The boot also sports a thick padded tongue, and the upper is created entirely from a super-soft nubuck material. And for those of you that are adhering to the policy of “no white after Labor Day,” get over yourself hunny. These bad-ass tootsies are only available in white. But buyer beware, these shoes are dangerous. As far as footwear goes, it doesn’t get more bad-girl-RiRi than this.
The Rihanna x FENTY PUMA Sneaker Boot is available now via footwear retailer Feature Sneaker Boutique.
