I've never liked sneakers. Probably because I've always associated them with sports, which I've never been particularly fond of either. Coupled with the fact that I still haven't fully recovered from the sneaker heel movement, my disdain for sneakers has remained steadfast over the years. Not even the meteoric re-emergence of Converse could sway me. As far as I was concerned, pairing sneakers with jeans was a style violation I wasn't ready to commit. Until Fenty x Puma happened.
I had seen photos of Rihanna's infamous Creeper Sneakers floating around the fashion blogger-sphere before, and I was surprised at how much I didn't hate them. Perhaps it was personal bias, since Rihanna is one of my idols/style icons. I recently had the opportunity to attend the latest Fenty launch party at Six:02 in Times Square, and after trying on literally every single article of clothing in her collection (and realizing only Rihanna herself could pull them off), I retreated to the shoe section. Within moments of slipping on the White Leather Creepers, I experienced a minor Cinderella moment and knew I couldn't leave the store without them.
Not only are these sneakers super comfy, they're versatile as well. Jeans, leggings, skirts, shorts, I have yet to find a combo that doesn't work with these babies. It's safe to say that I'm a reformed sneaker-hater and dare I say lusting after another pair?
