Purple Rihanna x Puma Fur Slides Are Coming

Faux fur isn't usually a popular fabric in summer, due to its thickness and how it doesn't exactly mesh well with heat and humidity. Unless, of course, you're thinking about Rihanna's Puma Fenty Fur Slides, which are the quintessential and fashion-y summer shoe. Up until now, the slides have come in white, black, blush, and grey. There's a new color joining the Fenty Fur Slide Squad and it's a totally unexpected shade.

The new Fenty Puma Slide is... purple. It's more of a light purple and a lavender hue than it is bright, royal, Prince-like purple. But it's a killer pop of color that will brighten up any monochromatic ensemble, be it black or white. It's a summery pastel.

I am stoked to see this new addition to the Fenty Fur Slide lineup. The jelly slides landed earlier this year and while cute, they aren't as cool or as fashionable as the fur slide. It's all about the fur, which has inspired tons of budget knockoffs.

Only Rihanna could make shower and beach shoes look super glam with a Puma-branded strap of fur over the top of the foot.

The purple fur Puma Fenty Slides by Rihanna arrive on Thursday, Jul. 13 at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT, which is standard for Puma x Rihanna drops. The luxe slides will be available via the Puma site and Puma retailers.

Are you feeling this new sexy shade? Are you already thinking about what outfits you want to pair 'em with? They are the ultimate in luxe athleisure.

The grey slides were the most recent addition to the cozy 'n' comfy line and they dropped last year.

The original trio of Fur Slides is total squad goals. I have the black pair and I live in them. BTW, here's some free but valuable advice. The Puma Fur Slides run big, so buy a size down or you'll regret it.

These, too! Or "two!"

The new Rihanna x Puma trainers are pretty slick and bootie-like.

This juxtaposition shows how sexy and casual Rihanna's style can be. Of course, the Puma shoes are more affordable than the stilettos but all of the footwear slays.

Go ahead and make a note in your calendar to shop on Thursday, Jul. 13 if you these purple Puma Fenty Fur Slides are speaking to you.
