Rihanna’s Puma Fenty Creeper has just won the annual Footwear News Achievement Award for 2016, with the recent Creepers' re-releases selling out within only a few minutes online. Rihanna is now recognised as one of the greats, along with Kanye West who won last year for the Adidas YEEZY Boost 350 and also the Adidas Stan Smith back in 2014.
Rihanna told FN “In my wildest dreams, I never would have imagined an honour like ‘Shoe Of The Year.’ It means so much to me to make a mark like this in the shoe and sneaker industry and to have so many people share my love for the Creeper.”
She’s the first woman to receive the award, making history for the future of women in the sneaker industry. It’s only uphill from here for the honeys and we can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us.
Puma coming to Sole Finess in 2017 so stay tuned!
