Following her successful New York Fashion Week debut, songstress Rihanna has unveiled her latest footwear collaboration with PUMA, the Fenty Trainer. Unlike the duo's affluent Creeper shoe, the Fenty Trainer features an avant-garde aesthetic.

Rihanna's role as Creative Director at PUMA has brought a lot of the singer's eccentric style to the brand. While the Creeper shoe elevated a sleek PUMA silhouette, the Fenty Trainer is seen as a dramatic version of a lifestyle shoe disguised as a performance sneaker. The collaborative trainer is available in three tonal colors which are described as Blackout, Red Alert and Whiteout.

With an exaggerated tongue, TPU Kurim cage and fully reflective underlay, the Fenty Trainer is the perfect fusion of both sport and fashion.
