In case you haven't heard, everyone is completely obsessed with the Rihanna Fenty x Puma velvet creepers. Not only are they designed by one of the world's most celebrated and beloved artists, they're also just a flat-out great looking shoe. But with huge popularity comes a big downside: the creepers are probably going to sell out A.S.A.P. (Insert the world's saddest emoji face.) So, what should you buy if Rihanna Fenty x Puma velvet creepers sell out?
It's only natural that fans of the shoes have been taking to Twitter to talk about her highly coveted line — and how quickly they're flying off the e-shelves. The good news is that creepers have been everywhere over the last year or two, so lots of designers and retailers have similar pairs that will fit into your wardrobe just as well (okay, almost as well) as Rihanna's gorgeous shoes, which are retailing on Puma.com and Urban Outfitters.
I've rounded up a few options for folks who may have missed their chance at snagging a pair Pumas. A couple of these picks come in similarly festive velvet to Rihanna's most recent design, while other creepers are made from cool matte suede, similar to the originals. Now, here's what you can buy if you can't get your hands on this cult favorite.
1. This Dramatic Deep Red Velvet Design
This luxurious pair of velvet sneakers is pretty close to the burgundy Puma design, making them a perfect pair of shoes to add that extra boost of flair to your outfit. They also come in black for folks who prefer a slightly subtler look.
2. A Pretty Pink Pair Of Velvet Lace-Up Sneakers
If you're obsessed with the velvet aspect of the most recent Rihanna Fenty x Puma creepers, then give this striking option from Steve Madden a try. These come in a beautiful rose gold shade that make a big statement with any outfit, as well as a dramatic navy velvet hue that's a daring option to wear with your holiday outfit. They feature a gorgeous silk lace-up design and a 1.5-inch platform.
3. This Burgundy Velvet Platform Slip-On
With a simple slip-on fit and a 1-inch platform, this Steve Madden pair is a super comfortable and inexpensive way to wear the season's trendiest fabric and hue.
4. These Creamy White Creepers That Go With Any Outfit
If you love the look of creepers in soft, matte shades, give this creamy and wallet-friendly option from Steven Madden a try. And if you're not a fan of white, this pick comes in a pretty pinkish beige color, too.
5. A Comfy Pair Of Creepers That Comes In Four Different Colors
With just a 1-inch platform and a lace-up design, this option from Indigo Rd. is a simple and pretty substitute for RiRi's creepers. Plus, these come in black, pale blue, ivory, and slate, and they're just 50 bucks — might as well stock up!
6. These Chic Velvet Lace-Up Sneakers
This particular pair has one big thing in common with the Rihanna's creepers: they were also designed by some big names. Kendall and Kylie Jenner created these beautiful velvet sneakers that are perfect to wear with all your favorite athleisure outfits, and come in a wide range of sizes.
