Rihanna and Puma, let’s just say they’re one of my favourite duos. They’re like PB&J, Oreos and milk, burgers and fries…well you get what I mean. Honestly, every time they come up with new designs and collections, they just nailed them all! Let’s be real somewhere in 2015, we kind of saw a big trend of creepers amongst trendsetters, you know the ones from the UK footwear brand, T.U.K, and then it kind of died down (hello, where’d you go?). Next couple of years, the creepers returned, in the form of sneakers fabulously made popular through the works of FENTY x PUMA.
Fun Fact: The FENTY creepers was crowned Sneaker of the Year at the Footwear News Achievement Awards in November last year!
Since then we’ve been creepin’ (pun intended) up on Rihanna’s and Puma’s IG, hoping to get a glimpse or a tease of perhaps a new design of the highly coveted creepers. Lo and behold, yesterday we got the news that it’s here in Malaysia and they looks so minimally chic. Rihanna has played with suede and velvet materials for the last releases but the new one has a whole new look. Introducing the full on leather creepers *heart eyes*. It comes in two shades, an all over white soft leather upper with the classic PUMA form stripes and a sleek shiny all black cracked leather, sick!

These new versions definitely feel dressier compared to the previous ones. The creepers are priced at RM730 and are available at selected PUMA outlets – Pavilion, KLCC and Sunway Pyramid.
