Ever since Rihanna became a part of Puma’s team, she’s brought nothing but success to the brand. It’s safe to say, Rihanna is one of the most influential celebrities in the game. How influential is she? Footwear News just awarded the Rihanna x Puma Creeper as the “Shoe of The Year”. Yea, that’s a pretty big accomplishment considering all the shoes that came out this year.
Rihanna will officially be accepting hew award during this year’s 30th FN Achievement Awards. Who did she happen to dethrone? None other than Kanye West and his Yeezy 350 Boost that happened to take the trophy home last year.
Rihanna had this to say in regards to winning shoe of the year, “In my wildest dreams, I never would have imagined an honor 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.”
