Puma Fenty Trainer Hi History
Back in 2014, the Puma brand was facing a major rebranding process. They already had Usain Bolt on board but wanted a strong female presence to be the face of the company. Rihanna, with her daring style, embodied the brand’s values and in December of that year she signed on to become Puma’s creative director for their women’s line.
Her first design for Puma, the Fenty Creeper, was released in September of 2015. This spin-off of the iconic Puma Basket was so highly anticipated that the model sold out within three hours. Further releases were mostly the same, and sales for the company grew 16.4% thanks mostly to the Fenty line.
In February of 2017, Rihanna and Puma released yet another highly popular silhouette—the Puma Fenty Trainer. The model came out in monochromatic colors of black, white, and red. The shoe had a unique profile with a long tongue and heel but with a low cut around the ankle. A neoprene material covered the foot while perforations throughout added breathability.
In June of 2017, a completely new spin on the Puma Fenty Trainer was dropped. The Puma Fenty Trainer Hi got a more daring and aggressive tooling and bolder appeal. The shoe blended lifestyle and sporty aesthetics to come out with a fully functional footwear that guarantees comfort no matter the activity.
