Today, Puma announced that it is releasing three velvet Fenty Puma Creepers on Dec. 8 in gray, black and burgundy.
Details haven’t emerged on a release time on Puma.com or what retailers will be carrying this drop. In its tweet about the release, Puma called it the “must-have shoe of the year,” and here at Footwear News, we happen to agree with that.
On Nov. 29, we’ll be honoring Rihanna and Puma with our Shoe of the Year award at the annual Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York. Over the course of 2016, the Fenty Puma Creeper has churned up incredible demand and excitement for this fashion-forward, wearable sneaker. The rich colors and wintry fabrication of the latest Creepers has us thinking these will sell out in a flash.

Meanwhile, this week Rihanna and Manolo Blahnik launched their second collaboration — a remake of Blahnik’s iconic Timberland-style boots.
