The Puma by Rihanna Creeper Cracked Leather comes in men’s and women’s US sizes in Medium width. Women’s sizing ranges from 4 to 11 while men's sizing is offered from 5 to 15. Both include half sizes.
The traditional lace-up closure can be adjusted depending on the wearer's preference for a lockdown and secure fit. The rounded toe box provides ample room for feet with a narrow to normal width. The collar and tongue are both lightly padded for added in-shoe comfort.
The Creeper has done it again and this time in a shiny cracked leather iteration officially named as the Puma by Rihanna Creeper Cracked Leather low-top sneaker. The chunky sole trend continues in this new version of the Creeper, with the original features retained except the eye-catching twist on the upper material. The platform sole alone makes a statement, but the addition of the shiny leather makes it even more deserving of attention and compliments. Wear it with shorts, jeans, leggings, or dresses, day or night, and you're good to go.
The Puma by Rihanna Creeper Cracked Leather is another platform low-top sneaker from the Puma Fenty by Rihanna collection. Like the original Creeper, one could easily spot it from the crowd as the platform sole does not only add a bit of height to the wearer but also a stylish vibe and a fashion statement. However, what makes this version a stand out is its shiny cracked leather upper. Hence, the “Cracked Leather” variation name.
The collaboration between Puma and music icon Rihanna started in December 2014. Rihanna was first appointed as the brand’s global ambassador for Women’s training and eventually as the Creative Director for Puma Women’s. Given the position, she is involved not only in product collections but also in designing and creating new styles for the brand through the Fenty Puma by Rihanna line.
Rihanna’s first shoe for the brand is the Puma Fenty Creeper. It was such a highly anticipated release for sneaker enthusiasts and Rihanna fanatics that its September 2015 launch sold out immediately after only three hours. It was, and still is, in fact, a favorite sneaker choice among celebrities on and off cam. It also bagged the Shoe of the Year award in 2016.
Fast forward to April 2017. Puma released a version of the Creeper that uses shiny cracked, textured leather on the upper for an added fashion statement. Officially called as the Puma by Rihanna Creeper Cracked Leather, this version initially released in two colorways featuring a platform sole, Formstrips on the side, and Puma Fenty brandings. It also comes with an impressive Fenty box and a shoe bag.
- The Puma by Rihanna branding is visible on the tongue, while another Puma branding is shown on the sides just above the signature Formstrip. The Jumping Cat logo is displayed on the heel.
- Perforation details can be found adjacent to the Formstrips.
- The tongue features an extra tab in which the laces could loop through to help keep it from sliding to the sides.
- The shoe laces are flat and waxed.
