Sneakers with collars that go above the ankles for optimal hold and support are some of the most sought-after models in lifestyle shoes. Most of these shoes take their roots from basketball and have easily or fashionably crossed to mainstream wear.

The Puma Fenty Trainer Hi is a women’s silhouette. It has a very stylish and flexible look that can easily be worn by men as well although men should make sure they remember the 1.5 difference between men’s and women’s shoe sizes.
This slip-on sneaker has a high-cut leather upper that provides a more secure and supported fit. The opening can be narrow for some, though, which makes the heel tab all the more useful. A TPU strap and cage on the quarter panel and a lace closure system for the ankle part give the shoe a customizable fit.
Go training in style. Take your Puma Fenty Trainer for a walk outside or to the gym for a quick workout. Pair it with yoga pants and a tank or tee for days when you want to work those muscles or wear an oversized hoodie with shorts for kicking back with friends.
What makes the Puma Fenty Trainer Hi so outstanding is how seamlessly it blends functionality and style into one. A mix of premium leather and mesh in remarkable colorways quickly captures the attention. But once you put these sneakers on, you’ll be surprised at the comfort. The upper sits on an Ignite foam midsole that offers superior cushioning and energy return. Neoprene collars add breathability while an Ignite outsole gives excellent shock absorption.
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 fully functional footwear that guarantees comfort no matter the activity.
- Each shoe weighs about 311 grams.
