Puma by Rihanna Creeper Cracked Leather History

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.

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.
