For years, Puma has been a trusted brand among world-class athletes. This, however, is not enough for them to lead the market. Lagging behind, they were open to the idea of change and were willing to try something new. Fresh and unique ideas finally came about with the entrance of Barbadian songwriter, singer and actress turned fashion designer Robyn Rihanna Fenty.

Popularly known as Rihanna or RiRi, this multi-talented artist helped turn the business around when she landed a job as Puma’s brand ambassador and creative director in 2014. Their partnership led to the creation of the Fenty x Puma collection. A line that showcases a wide array of athleisure footwear and apparel.

Smart, creative and chic, RiRi was able to impress both men and women with her creations. Women, in particular, were pleased. Happy to see new footwear designs that actually meet their feminine taste and style.

The Puma Prevail Heart does just that. Making a debut in May 2017, its release was welcomed with much gusto. Inspired by RiRi’s Fenty special edition releases, the Prevail, a classic ‘94 runner has been updated with oversized satin laces and gold accents to meet modern-day women’s needs and demands.

Other classics have also been blessed with extra-large laces. This includes the renowned Puma Suede and Puma Basket. All of which are part of their Heart collection that is currently and steadily gaining a loyal following.

  • The extra-large laces also help improve this street-ready sneaker’s fit.
  • In-shoe feel is further improved with the addition of the lightly padded collar and tongue as well as the textile lining.
  • This low-top casual shoe’s rubber outsole provides adequate grip and traction.  
  • The Trinomic logo can be found printed in gold on the Prevail Heart’s tongue, heel, and lateral side.
  • For further branding, the Puma and Trinomic logo can also be seen embossed on the shoe’s undersole.
