Got $180 and a desire to absolutely slay when it comes to athleisure footwear this spring and summer? Well, you need to scoop up a pair of the new Rihanna x Puma Trainers. Yes, these fashion-y sneakers are again available in women's sizes on the Puma site. While that's shocking, wide avails are not likely to last long. Remember, the Rihanna x Puma Creepers sold out super fast but are shoppable via third party sites and that's pretty much it. Plus, when these edgy, somewhat geometric, and super desired high-tops do sell out, whether or not they will be restocked (and when) is anyone's guess and a waiting game. And let's not get started on those fashion unicorns known as Yeezy Boosts, since those Kanye West-designed kicks have achieved cult status and are hard to get. So what colors are the Rihanna x Puma Trainers available in?
You have a three options, actually.
They come in all-black, all-white, and all-red. Yes, these sneakers have a very athletic and casual look to them. They are the epitome of athleisure. But they also look like wrestling sneakers and they are cool. You can also dress them up with a pair of leather leggings or rock them with a pair of destroyed, dark wash skinnies.
The options for what to wear them with are pretty endless. You can go black-on-black or black-on- white. The black pair is my favorite, since the silhouette and shade are classic and simple. You don't see as much of the detail in the black version but there is still a subtle chicness to this version.
But check out the Rihanna x Puma Trainers in red. They add a serious pop of color to whatever you wear 'em with. They become more of a trendy, statement shoe in this expressive hue. Try rocking the red pair with an all-black outfit, along with red lips and tips.
To my eyes, the white version looks a bit futuristic. It's the high tongue x top hybrid thing. Maybe add a white pair to an all-black outfit? That's totally fashionable.
I don't recommend delaying or going back and forth inside your own brain for too, too long when choosing a color. Just do it, to borrow a phrase form sneaker giant Nike. If you want to spend almost $200 on cool kicks, these are the ones. Recent celeb x sneaker collabo history tells us these Trainers are bound to be hard-to-find sooner than later.
