The big day is almost here. Thursday, May 26 marks the next drop of new Rihanna Puma Creepers. Previous editions of the RiRi Creepers have sold out quickly. The new drop features an all-white leather version, an all-black suede version, and a green and maroon edition, all of which feature that sick silhouette and thick sole. Information about the price and about where to buy the shoes has been somewhat conflicting. Racked reported that the shoes would carry the usual $120 price tag, while Women's Wear Daily indicated that the new kicks would be $150 and exclusive to the Puma site, even though the sneakers were previously available via a variety of retailers. Also, some online retail outlets are now advertising on-sale times. What time can you buy the new Rihanna Puma Creepers?
Well, two sites are promoting a 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT on-sale time. That falls in line with the morning drop of the Rihanna Puma Fur Slides, which sold out pretty much instantaneously. I snagged a pair via the Nordstrom site and hoping to do the same for the Creepers. Bustle reached out to Puma PR reps to ask about the on-sale time, as well as for a list of stockists. We'll let you know if and when we hear back.
Update: Puma PR reps got back to us via email on May 25 to confirm that the price of the sneakers is $150. Additionally, Puma.com will begin sales at 10 a.m. EST while Puma stores will open at 9 a.m. Retailers include PUMA.com, select PUMA Stores, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, and, Opening Ceremony.

The Rihanna x Puma Creepers really are the coolest kicks. If I don't get a pair, I am going to be inconsolable. No sneaker shaming here. I totally love these shoes and want to wear them daily.
This profile shot of the Creeper shape in the sand reminds me of how the information regarding this sneaker drop is somewhat inconsistent and very loose... like grains of sand.
Since the Creepers are coming tomorrow, I expect further nuggets of information to make their way to the surface throughout the day or overnight. I promise to keep you totally posted.
