If you're a fan of the radically bold design of the Rihanna Fenty Trainers, then you're in luck. A new color is dropping your way. You can now add grey to your collection, much to the delight of neutral-palette lovers everywhere. So when will the grey Fenty trainers be available? You won't have to wait as long as you'd think.
When Rihanna became the creative director for Puma, she brought forth edgy and urban designs that might seem intimidating at first, but challenge fashion lovers everywhere to flew their styling muscles. According to InStyle, the trainers have "exaggerated shin-high tongue, futuristic finish (made of ariaprene—a next-level breathable version of neoprene—and reflective detailing), and monochrome color palette. It's a design that's unapologetically bold, that commands attention, and that's definitely not for the faint of heart." But for those that love a good challenge, this was a dare irresistible to take.
When they first came out, the Trainers came in shades of black, red, and white, and now we could add the color grey into the option smorgasbord. They're the perfect choice for those that don't feel quite ready to pull off the boldness of a red punch or edge of a dark trainer, but don't trust themselves with the white of a sneaker.
So when can you get your hands on them? According to a Puma press release, they are "available June 15th on PUMA.com and at select lifestyle retailers worldwide for $180." As in, two days people. In just 48 hours, you can have this grey version of Rihanna's futuristic take of a work out sneaker. Just imagine the appreciative nods of fashion lovers everywhere as you kick back and eat brunch or run errands in these bad boys. Now all you have to do is scrape together enough cash in two days time.
But now let's talk shop: Just how can you wear these futuristic kicks?
Taking a peek at the Rihanna x Puma lookbook can give you ideas, suggesting that you could wear them with everything from summer minis to tough and baggy leather jackets.
Rihanna is known to play with fashion and not take rules too seriously, so it doesn't seem like a too-far leap that she'd want you to take the same approach with these trainers. Pair them with unexpected pieces and keep in mind that in two days time, you'll have a whole new color to work with!
