Having recently been honored with the "Shoe of The Year" award, the Fenty x Puma Creeper has reached true unicorn status. The cult-favorite sneaker has been highly coveted from the start, selling out faster than the blink of an eye with each release. That's why there is no doubt in my mind that the latest creeper launch will be just as popular. Twitter reactions to the new Fenty x Puma velvet creepers show that fans are still totally obsessed with the star shoe.
Ever since Rihanna teased the latest drop of her signature kicks on Instagram, dedicated fans have been in a major frenzy in anticipation of the re-release. This time, however, the restock was a little more special. Rather than making the classic suede style available again, the brand is launching a velvet version that is just perfect for the holiday season. The super luxe fabric is offered in three colors: all-black, charcoal gray, and deep burgundy, all with matching sole shades. If the OG creeper was in high-demand, this stunning new style will definitely be off the charts.
The velvety new sneaks officially launched on Thursday Dec. 8 at 10:00 a.m. EST on puma.com, and if you're thinking about shopping, you can definitely expect the website to crash due to the high volume of customers frantically trying to cop a pair.
Some people were actually successful.
Some are still saying their prayers.
Others haven't had much luck.
A sell-out was inevitable.
The all-black creeper is better than no creeper.
The velour kicks clearly make the perfect gift for the holidays.
The red colorway feels especially Christmas-y.
All the colors are a hit.
Still, it seems the burgundy shade was the most popular.
A moment of silence for all those who couldn't snag a pair.
Here's to hoping for a restock soon!
