One of the most influential people when it comes to fashion and style is your favourite girl from Barbados, Rihanna. Whether she’s making hits or touring the world we can always count on Rih to deliver some of the most fashion forward outfits. So it is no surprise that a few years ago Rihanna released her trademark Fenty x Puma collection and since then she has shown her collection in New York, and Paris Fashion Week.
In September 2016 Rihanna released her Spring 2017 collection and those shoes hit stores March 9th, 2017. The Fenty x Puma brand has become a favourite for its fashion forward interpretation on slides and “the creeper”. If you haven’t already seen it, here are the new additions to the Fenty x Puma family.
The collection has expanded to include heels, and added new sneakers and boots to the family. The new slides and sneakers both come in pink and olive, the lace-up heels come in a variety of colours including blue and brown, and the boots are also available in white and tan.
The first thing I will say is that the collection is creative and unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. That being said I think the shoes could look good depending on the person wearing them. I personally can’t see myself rocking the sneaker or the boot because I don’t think it is really my style. If I’m being honest, I’m really not a fan of the sneakers because the bow addition really throws me off.
Now let’s talk about what I do like! The slides are super cute, the bow on the slides adds a feminine touch, which I appreciate. The funny thing is that the slides are actually sold under the men’s section on the Puma site but that’s okay, fashion doesn’t discriminate! Finally, let’s discuss the heels. I love a good pair of heels and I love that Rihanna has incorporated heels into her collection. These shoes are both sporty and feminine, plus it doesn’t hurt that there are a good variety of colours to choose from.
