— PUMA (@PUMA) March 2, 2017
While little is known of the release, Footwear News — which recently named Rihanna’s eternally sold-out creeper Shoe of the Year — reports that new Fenty-fied slides are on their way. Spring 2017’s slip-ons are (slightly) more pool-friendly than their fuzzy predecessors: this time around, the Barbadian designer swapped fur for silky bows. On the runway, the slides came in olive and pastel pink. At present, the website’s banner imagery touts the former, but if Puma’s sticking to tradition, we expect both colorways will be available and will cost around $80, as they did last season.
Harper’s Bazaar reports that Rih’s stilettoed sneaker booties, lace-up pink heels and silky bow sneaks will also make an appearance, though Puma’s site does not explicitly reference these styles. Harper’s also claims that Puma will roll out new pieces from the Fenty spring collection each month from now until June. We assume they know better than to toy with our Rih-motions. (Sorry.)
