When Rihanna launched her new Puma Creepers during New York Fashion Week, the world went crazy. So crazy in fact, that Rihanna's Creepers sold out almost instantly, which isn't exactly surprising. If you're wondering where to buy Rihanna x Puma creepers look-alikes, you came to the right place. Because while you probably won't be able to get your hands on a real pair of Puma Creepers for a while, you can buy sneakers with a similar aesthetic to get you through until the day finally arrives where you can have a pair of the singer's shoes on your feet (I'm still waiting for Yeezy Boosts though, if we're being honest).
Rihanna partnered with Mr. Completely to design these Puma kicks, but there are several alternatives you can find online that mimic the black and white design — even a couple pairs from Puma themselves! Luckily the shoes are black and white, not some weird color combination, because otherwise, it would probably be tricky to mimic Rihanna's edgy athleisure style.
As if you needed another reason to buy a look-alike version of the Creepers (obviously you have to buy a look alike version, since they're sold out), the look-alikes are going to be more affordable! Rihanna's Puma Creepers cost $120, while most of these look-alikes cost around $55. How's that for flipping a negative into a positive?
Here are six pairs of Rihanna x Puma Creeper look-alikes that will tide you over until you get your hands on the real deal.
1. Vans Old Skool
These vans probably bear the closest resemblance to the real Rihanna Creeper. If only the soles were black. (Vans Old Skool, $55, vans.com)
2. Puma Suede Classic Mid Jr. Sneaker
These Urban Outfitters-exclusive Pumas are like the Rihanna shoes but with a high-top. Pretty cool, if you ask me. (Puma Suede Classic Mid Jr Sneaker, $55, urbanoutfitters.com)
3. Nike Internationalist
These Nike kicks are a sportier version of the Puma Creepers. (Nike Internationalist, $69.97, nike.com)
4. Puma Vikky Women's Sneakers
What a better look-alike shoe to buy than one that is made by the same company? These are a little more sporty than Rihanna's, but they are still cool. (Vikky Women's Sneakers, $55, puma.com)
5. Vans Sk8-Hi Slim
These Vans are just really cool and rock a color scheme similar to the Rihanna Creepers. (Sk8-Hi Slim, $55, vans.com)
6. Puma Suede Classic Women's Sneakers
These Pumas have a flat sole like Rihanna's Creepers. One step closer to the real thing. Boom. (Suede Classic Women's Sneakers, $65, puma.com)
