Are Rihanna's Puma Slides Real Fur? Here's What Animal Lovers Should Know

Leave it to Rihanna to go and reinvent a basic shower shoe and turn it into something everyone wants to wear. She recently released her next shoe to hit Puma stores, and of course — it’s the one pair you’re going to want this summer, even though it’s covered in fur. Only Rihanna could sell fur shoes in the summer, you know? But, are Rihanna’s fur slides for Puma real or faux? According to PeopleStyle, those furry straps are indeed faux. Which would make sense because while the shoe does have an $80 price point, they’d be much more pricey if they were covered in actual fur. Bustle has reached out to Puma to confirm what the shoes are made out of.

With athleisure trending so hard, it’s easy to see why these shoes are going to be must-haves. I mean, you can wear them with anything. They can be worn with or without socks, with sweats or even with a cute dress because when it comes to versatile, comfortable footwear, Rihanna clearly knows what she’s doing. The creepers and trainers she designed as part of the Fenty x Puma collection were big hits, and this third shoe is sure to be the same. You know what they say, “third time’s the charm.” Of course, it didn’t take your girl RiRi three times to get it right. No way!

Real or faux, my guess is, there are a lot of people who are going to want to slip into these sliders.

These slides are the epitome of sporty-chic.

Especially in this baby pink.

Be on the lookout for that April 22 launch date. You're definitely going to want to snag these before they're gone!
