There’s no denying that shoes are the stars of the show when it comes to Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma collection. You can find those creepers — in suede, velvet, or ribbon-sandal form — just about everywhere since they first came on the scene in 2015, and the infamous faux-fur (and now jelly) slides are, well, infamous.
The latest release, out today, includes two new colors of the Fenty x Puma trainer ($190) — an update of the slip-on sneaker that debuted last summer with an extended heel and exaggerated tongue. This update first came onto the market earlier this month in cypress (an olive green) and sesame (a tan, almost-peach color), but now you can you can get them in black and white, too.
The trainers are way more wearable this time around: They’re shaped more like a bootie rather than an intimidating high-top, with a suede-like fitted sock upper and mesh-middle lining. (Yes, there are some definite Yeezy vibes.) For fans of the earlier version, you’ll still get that same sculptural aesthetic with the Velcro straps laying across the top with the Fenty x Puma branding.
