The BADGAL is back at it again.

From iconic creeper sneakers to faux-fur slides, we’ve consistently raced to purchase the performer-turned-designer’s adored footwear styles. Cherry-picking from the ingenious and wondrously unconventional emerging trends, and infusing them with her one-of-a-kind panache, Rihanna continues to push boundaries as PUMA’s Creative Director.

Thursday, March 9th marked the pre-release for Rihanna’s SS17 Fenty x Puma collection. The latest collaboration introduces four new styles of Fenty x Puma shoes, including the “bow collection” — satin bow slides and sneakers — plus two additional styles.

Influenced by the extravagant 18th century Parisian days of Marie-Antoinette, RiRi blends contemporary sportswear with the rococo flair of neoclassical France. The collection is done in two striking colorways – Silver Pink and Olive Branch. Of the four, it’s the “bow” releases that rank highly as favorites based on comfort, price and appeal.

The Bow Slides up the ante on the classic athletic aesthetic. Taking things to an irrefutable luxe level, they exude a feminine swagger that any fashion-forward lady can appreciate. The slide sandals feature a satin foam backing for comfort, ‘FENTY PUMA BY RIHANNA’ emblazoned footbed and a satin midfoot strap with a beautiful bow décor.

Continuing to transcend the traditional, Rihanna hits everyday street-wear with an innovative punch. She’s reinvented PUMA’s old school Trinomic style into something much more modern and lustrous. The once totally sporty sneak now oozes with girly embellishments. A satin upper, tonal outsole, logo tongue patch and a knotted satin bow are all part of the allure.

These shoes are simply a taste of a wider spring collection. So as you eagerly await RiRi’s next drop, shop the fresh Fenty x Puma slides and sneakers at shopakira.com. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for new releases to come!
