Rihanna recently teamed up with Puma to design a stylish suede sneaker with a textured creeper sole. While the pop star is well known for her fashion influence, this latest collaboration puts a retro twist on her signature style.

The new sneakers are completely black, aside from a brown rubber sole. The shoes are adorned with leather laces and the word 'Puma' written in gold. What sets the stylish sneakers apart is the addition of a texture creeper sole. While this kind of sole can sometimes appear heavy, the new Puma's feature a lower platform heel and a more subtle overall look.

While it is common for celebrities to lend a hand in the design process, Rihanna was actually given the title of Creative Director of Puma this past year. Her new role demonstrates the growing influence of celebrities in the fashion world.
