Rihanna, Puma’s new creative director, has designed a new sneaker for the German athletic brand. Dubbed, the Trainer, the stylish sneaker is the first original shoe by the renowned  Barbadian singer.

Designed to be worn without the laces, Rihanna’s Puma Fenty Trainer features a high top profile complete with an extra long tongue, a subtle heel along with a neoprene finish. The Fenty Trainer also stands out with a breathable mesh upper with perforated plastic overlays at the sides.

The style of the shoes may not be the best choice for hitting the gym but it will certainly up the in-vogue quotient on the streets.
