The sandal of the summer is on its way, courtesy of Rihanna and Puma! The latest Rihanna x Puma footwear drop isn't a new sneaker color or texture, like the black, cracked patent leather Creepers that arrived earlier this spring. Instead, it's the Rihanna Puma Creeper Bow Sandal and it boasts a bow, ankle straps, a soft leather texture, and that signature platform gum sole. It's a hybrid of the Rihanna Puma Creeper and an espadrille — an espadrille Creeper and it slays all day.
The sandal is a twist on the Creeper that only Rihanna could execute successfully. It's not often that a super popular kick can be reimagined in sandal form, but this is RiRi and Puma and there is nothing they can't do.
When do the Rihanna x Puma Creeper Bow Sandals, which are offered in pink, nude, and oatmeal colors, come out?
You can buy the sexy shoes on Thursday, May 11 on the Puma site and at select global Puma retailers, according to the press materials that Bustle received. Most Puma drops happen at 10 a.m. ET, so you can expect the same here. Bustle reached out to Puma for price info and to inquire if the shoes are limited edition or not.
Update: Puma PR confirmed the 10 a.m. drop time via email.
How adorbs! You can wear these shoes with a denim mini, with cutoff jean shorts, capri leggings, or a t-shirt dress. You can also wrap the straps high or low on the leg, as well. The Fur Slides have been featured in this blushed pink hue.
It's such a creative, effective, and pretty reinterpretation of the insanely popular Creeper. This sandy shade is also reminiscent past Creeper drops.
The silhouette can dress up any summer ensemble, thanks to the bow and the ankle straps. These shoes join the Creeper and the fur slides as another quality style from Rihanna and Puma.
These sandals totally capture the brand's athleisure x Marie Antoinette vibe.
I love how cyclical the sandal is, since the Creeper provided inspo for another Puma shoe.
It's the best way to be self-referential.
