Puma Fenty Pointy Creeper Patent low-top sneaker is covered with glossy leather upper that’s thinly glazed with a plastic coating that mimics a dress shoe. This sheer synthetic layering makes the Fenty Pointy Creeper inflexible especially when taken out of the box, while the sharp toe may cause troubles with the ball of the foot or the widest section of the foot.

Many buyers cited that it tends to be narrow and tight, and others opted to size up. Another way to loosen up this shoe is by wearing thick socks during the first week of use. The Puma Fenty Pointy Creeper Patent is available in women’s sizes 4 to 11 US and men’s sizes from 5 to 14 US.

Fashion-conscious junkies, both male and female, are given another dose of high-street fashion with the arrival of the unisex Puma Fenty Pointy Creeper Patent, a reflection of Rihanna’s daring fashion appetite. By cherry-picking from a broad selection of weird gears, casual wardrobes, to fashion-forward outfits, one can find cuts and colors that will easily camouflage with this pointy Creeper. This includes parkas and fleece pants, oversized coats and slim pants, turtlenecks and trousers, fleece coats and leggings, and tight-fitting dresses.

Puma and Rihanna have done it again in coming up with a highly-fashionable Fenty Creeper silhouette that’s workable and comfortable. Called the Puma Fenty Pointy Creeper Patent, its unique façade which is a combination of highly reflective glossy leather and cleated elevated sole commands a style that befits the unflinching, brave, and fashion-forward crowd. These men and women won’t let substandard design get in the way of their looks, which is why this pointy Creeper is made with liberally cushioned lining and footbed and a long-lasting, thickset sole.

Rihanna and Puma continue to nurse their love for patent leather and platform soles, and just in time for the autumn-winter season, they created another show-stopping release combining those elements but using a tapered front. This is the stunning Puma Fenty Pointy Creeper Patent, which caused a stir among loyal Fenty and RiRi followers.

The arrival of the low-top Puma Fenty Pointy Creeper Patent wasn’t flashy or flamboyant, but quite elegant since the initial designs came in modest Black and grayish Dove colorways. The sharp front, glossy patent leather cover, and nearly two-inch thick cleated sole did all the talking. This sneaker is part of the University Collection which consists of designs that fuse varsity sport and high-end fashion.

Rihanna has propelled the sportswear giant to greater heights since she landed a gig as its creative director in 2014. Her fearless attitude towards fashion became the groundwork of the Fenty Creeper segment, putting a new name to sporty flats. The initial salvo, which consists of suede uppers and full-length elevated soles, was a runaway success, garnering a heightened appeal among Rihanna’s die-hard fans and style-conscious sneaker lovers.

The chart-topping success of Rihanna and Puma’s first collaborative venture was their ticket to generate more items to fill in the Fenty portfolio, which later led to the release of the Puma Creeper Patent Leather, Basket Glo Creeper, Puma Fenty Suede Cleated Creeper, and a bunch of other Puma by Rihanna sneakers.

For the 2017 offering, the proportions and dimensions of Rihanna’s earlier platform Creepers were fine-tuned using an even chunkier and more pronounced cleat sole, giving birth to design concepts that not only tap the female crowd but the male too, such as the unisex Puma Fenty Pointy Creeper Patent.

  • The Puma Fenty Pointy Creeper Patent was unveiled on October 12, 2017.
  • On its initial drop, this shoe retailed at $160.
  • It has a lace up closure that offers a comfortable, adjustable fit.
  • It offers moderate cushioning on the footbed.
  • Puma by Rihanna appears on the tongue and insole.
  • Puma Formstripe branding is stitched on each side of the shoe.
  • The jumping cat image is debossed on the heel.
