Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma creeper has recently been named Shoe of the Year by Footwear News!

Last year’s winner was Kanye West for his Yeezy Boost 350 sneaker. Rihanna took to Instagram to share her excitement. It’s pretty huge news considering she is the first woman to receive the award. Her caption reads, “To God be the Glory!!! What a blessing to be honored with this prestigious award, and to be the first woman receiving “SHOE OF THE YEAR” at#FNAA !! Never could I have imagined the amount of support and love we got from around the world for #THECREEPER !!! Thank you to everyone who represented and made the movement!!! One Love. #FENTYxPUMA

She’s pushed the boundaries within the  sneaker culture, having broken into what Harper’s Bazaar calls a “fairly male-dominated”area, and has come out on top. Rihanna’s Fenty creeper hit the runway for the first time in her debut collection Fenty x Puma during NYFW.

Looking back at my #FENTYXPUMA show. Paris was so much fun!!!

The highly anticipated collection was followed up with a second range during Paris Fashion Week. Once the sneaker went up for sale online, it sold out in just three hours.
