It’s no longer a surprise when a killer, limited-edition clothing collaboration sells like crazy — we’ve seen it time and time again, with Balmain for H&M being one of them.But nothing could have prepared us for the frenzy that surrounded Rihanna’s creeper collection for Puma (the first for the celeb in her new role as the brand’s womenswear creative director and global ambassador for women’s training) — and it’s partly because they’re not quite like anything we’ve seen before.
While the stacked platform sole has been a popular trend for a while now, combining it with all the comfy benefits of a sneaker (and in some pretty sick colors, too) is what makes this shoe genius. Shoppers definitely agreed: According to Bad Gal RiRi herself, the first drop of the shoe sold out in just three hours. And when more became available last month, they were completely wiped from Puma’s website by the next day.
While Puma told Refinery29 there won’t be any more restocks of the current creeper collection (heartbreaking, we know), there’s definitely more exciting product to come. And even though the shoe is sold out on the brand’s site, it’s still available HERE — for now.
