When it comes to fashion, Rihanna can do no wrong. Case in point: The R&B singer’s third footwear design for her Fenty x Puma line, a pair of furry slides that will be inhabiting our thoughts and dreams until their April 22 release date.
#THEFURSLIDE, an update of Puma’s classic Leadcat silhouette, is sure to join the ranks of its recurrently sold-out predecessors, the punk-meets-hip-hop gum-soled platform creeper and the bold-tongued, high performance trainer, for those who sweat with style.
True, their cozy, luxurious faux-fur trim and satin-foam backing may not be the most practical beach attire, but pair them with a flirty tennis dress or loose-fitting pants and a crop top and you’ll give new life to the athleisure trend.
At $80 a pair and in three colorways (black, white and shell, a soft pinkish hue and our personal favorite) the slides are, by today’s standards, pretty affordable and a breath of fresh air to the summer slide market.
They (almost) make us forget those original furry beauties, the Gucci Princetown loafers. Good work, Rih.
