Are Rihanna's Fur Slides Waterproof Enough To Actually Wear To The Pool?
Fuzzy fur and summertime heat don't usually go together, but Rihanna isn't here to play by anyone's rules. The Puma Fur Slides by FENTY are bound to be summer's hottest accessory — literally. But if you're wondering "are Rihanna's fur slides waterproof?" here's what we do know about the unconventional take on a cult classic.
Rihanna has teamed up with Puma for her second shoe collaboration with the brand, and on April 22, the new kicks are up for grabs. These funky slip-on sandals will cost you $80. For that price, you hope they're waterproof! Luckily, Riri designed these shoes for you to wear anywhere, from poolside to patios. According to a press release, Rihanna "designed these slides with comfort and style in mind, having to travel extensively as part of her busy lifestyle." See ya, rubber flip flops.
The edgy, urban sliders with a touch of couture come in black, white, and shell pink, featuring a single, faux fur-topped strap with the Puma logo and a satin foam backing. They're still the classic shower shoes beloved by college athletes and street chic fashionistas, with soft tooling on the soles. While the FENTY version is a little more luxe, you don't have to walk lightly in these. They're made to take you anywhere.
As far as being totally waterproof, it's safe to say you won't want to be submerging the faux fur upper in the pool. But if you're walking down the street after a light summer shower, the satin foam backing will surely stand up to the elements. Oh, and as the press release notes, "the Fur Slide by FENTY is great to rock with socks or without." Thank goodness for that.
