Rihanna put on a real deal fashion show at NYFW for her Puma line, and she's following that up with a sneaker drop tomorrow. The Trainer by Fenty is the first original shoe from Puma's creative director Rihanna. Her previous shoes for Puma, including the constantly sold-out creeper, were all tweaks on existing Puma sneakers.
Retailing at $180, The Trainer by Fenty features an exaggerated (and polarizing) tongue, and it's made of ariaprene, an advanced form of neoprene that's breathable. The sneaker will come in three colors: black, red, and white.
Want to get your hands on Rihanna's latest sneaker design? First of all, your best bet is Puma's website. Puma will carry both women's and men's sizes of the shoe and the shoe is launching at 10am EST.
If that fails, here's a list of boutiques that will carry the The Trainer by Fenty tomorrow:
Rise (will carry women's sizes only, set to launch at 12:01am online)
Six:02 (will carry women's sizes only)
Nordstrom (will carry women's and men's sizes)
Bloomingdale's (will carry women's sizes only)
Sheikh (will carry women's sizes only)
Villa (will carry women's sizes only)
Madison Style (will carry women's sizes only)
