Rihanna & Puma’s Creepers overtakes Yeezy to become shoe of the year

Rihanna’s shoe line for Puma, Creepers is the shoe of the year. According to Footwear News, the Creeper was sold out  in 3 hours when it first debuted last fall .


The Fenty Puma Creeper was the only choice for the 2016 Shoe of the Year: The sought-after honor will be presented at the 30th annual Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York on Nov. 29.

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.
