Following the triumph of the “Creeper” debut, Rihanna has teamed up with PUMA to release The Fenty Trainer. Available in “Whiteout”, “Blackout” and “Red Alert” colourways, this creative collaboration brings forth what might be the world’s highest tongue sneaker (too high, if you ask me). Paired with a lace-less construction, over-extended heel and futuristic aesthetic, the arrival of these high fashion kicks after New York Fashion Week is way too perfect.
Disguised as a hybrid performance and lifestyle kick, the Fenty’s perforated materials lend to its breathability, comfort and smooth look. Given PUMA’s reported Q4 sales spike credited to Rihanna’s last sneaker release, this distinctive design sets the bar high. But really, how high is too high when it comes to tongues? We’ll have to wait and see. Cop them February 26th at select retailers for $180.
