On Friday, February 26th, Rihanna and Puma will launch a new sneaker. It’s the Fenty x Puma Trainer and it is the first truly original design to emerge from the partnership as the Creepers were a re-imagining of an existing design.
Not only were the shoes sported on the Fenty x Puma Fall 2016 runway but Rihanna also wore a pair of the shoes on August 22 last year. Back then there was no info available about the shoes but now we’ve got all the details. Rihanna’s colourway won’t be released on Friday but there are three colours that you will be able to get your hands on. Check them out below.The three colours are “Blackout”, “Whiteout” and “Red Alert”. The Fenty Trainer is a lace-less, high-top design with an elongated tongue. There is Puma branding on the front, the athletic brand’s signature formstripe at the sides and Puma by Rihanna branding down the back. Everyone on Twitter and Instagram has been talking about these shoes for a week so expect them to sell just as well as the Creepers, which sold out quickly with every release. The sneakers will be available from Puma websites and stores as well as select retailers. And by the way, Puma will be setting up booths at some of Rihanna’s Anti World Tour dates so look out for that.
Here are more pictures of the shoes from other angles.
