Sneaker pimps who are pop music fans must be legit bummed lately. Kanye West’s Yeezy Boosts sell out on the quick and remain super hard to find. Now, Rihanna’s Puma Creepers have attained the same cult, hard-to-get, and much-desired status as the fashion unicorn known as the Yeezy Boost 350s. The Rihanna x Puma Creepers are totally sold out on the brand's official site, leading fans and coveteurs to seek the sneaks at higher prices on third party sites, like eBay. But what about Amazon? Can you get Rihanna’s Puma Creepers on Amazon?
Yes, you actually can. You have to do a little searching, but seek and ye shall find. More like "sneak" and ye shall find. There aren't as many pairs available on Amazon as there are on eBay, though.
You also have to roll up your sleeves and do a little research, checking back regularly. But yes, the Rihanna x Puma Creepers have made their way to Amazon, with a price tag that far exceeds the $120 suggested by Puma.
As always, I encourage spending a little time investigating the seller and confirming the authenticity of the shoes in writing. When you don't purchase an item directly from the brand or official retailers, you can expose yourself to fakes.
So take the time to make sure you are getting what you want and what you pay for.
Both West and Rihanna have a serious side hustle in the fashion world, specifically when it comes to footwear. Their shoe shenanigans almost eclipse their music careers. Each offers super cool kicks under a major shoe brand's umbrella. No, that was not an intentional reference to one of Rihanna's earliest hits, either! Both are major street style stars who have created shoes that have become really difficult to obtain, due to their popularity and seemingly limited production.
There isn't a clear indication of if or when Rihanna x Puma Creepers will be restocked online. If you have patience, wait and see. Sign up for the mailing list so you can be alerted when more will be made available. Or take a chance and shop eBay or Amazon for these killer kicks.
