Rihanna told FN:
“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.”
FN selects the shoe of the year based on retail sales, consumer feedback, social media prowess and overall buzz.
The award has been handed out just three times: Kanye West took it home last year with his Yeezy Boost 350 sneaker with Adidas.
In 2014, tennis legend Stan Smith was on hand to accept the prize for his own hot signature shoe with Adidas.
