Bottom line

It ticks off the boxes in terms of comfort, style, and perfect fit, as attested by most purchasers. It is, however, a bit pricey than the usual fashion sneakers and also bulky and heavy for some purchasers.

The Puma Fenty Suede Cleated Creeper is available for both men and women. Men's sizes range from 7 to 14 in D Medium width, while women's sizes range from sizes 4 to 11 in B Medium width. Half sizes are also offered. It generally fits true to size.

This latest addition to the Fenty line features a low-top structure that allows ankle mobility and a lace-up closure for a more accurate and comfortable fit. The tongue and collar are padded as well for additional comfort.

Trendy, eye-catching, edgy, and chic are just some of the words that best describe the Puma Fenty Suede Cleated Creeper. It is one of those shoes that stand out with its sneaker-meets-stiletto design that adds oomph to any outfit. Strut in athleisure style and pair it with leggings dresses, shorts, mini-skirts, sweats or jeans. 

One feature that stands out the most on the Puma Fenty Suede Cleated Creeper is its thick platform, cleat-style rubber sole. It also features premium leather accents to complement the all-suede upper resembling the Puma Fenty Creeper. Completing the look is the tonal and flat shoelaces with a lace-up type of closure. 

It was in December 2014 when Puma and Grammy Award-winning singer Rihanna announced their partnership as part of the brand's major rebranding. The perfect female face to embody the brand's new sport-with-attitude direction, the pop star was appointed as Puma's global ambassador for Women's Training and later on as the Creative Director for Puma Women's. Such a position allows her to have a say on product collections, take part in designing or customizing existing Puma classic styles, and create new styles for the brand.

One of the collaboration's successful releases was the Puma Fenty Creeper. It was the music icon's first shoe for the brand, and each launch sold out quickly. In fact, its September 2015 release sold out just within 3 hours. It even won the Shoe of the Year award in 2016 and is a favorite among celebrities with the likes of Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, the Weeknd, and Lena Dunham.

The Puma Penty Suede Cleated Creeper released as part of Rihanna's Fall 2017 Fenty Puma Collection, initially on August 31, 2017, in two colorways – black and golden brown. Its general features are similar to that of the original Puma Suede Creeper, but the sole is much thicker and of cleated rubber material. The upper utilizes suede with leather accents and tonal laces that complete the look.

  • This shoe has a rounded toe cap and a plaid fabric lining.
  • The Puma Formstrip is presented on the lateral sides. Some perforation details for breathability are parallel to it.
  • The Puma jumping cat logo can be found at the heel. Other brandings are visible on the tongue and the lateral side.
  • This shoe comes with an extra set of laces and a dust bag.
