I think it's safe to say 2016 has been the year Bad Gal Riri officially killed the game. Aside from both her chart topping album "Anti" that I still have on repeat each day, and rumored to be dating Drizzy Drake (so jel), she has also completely dominated the shoe game this year.
Since Ri has taken her role as Puma Women's Creative Director, each release of her iconic creepers, trainers, and Fenty slides have sold out almost immediately time and time again. After several failed attempts at getting my hands on these shoes, I was determined that the slides would finally be mine this last drop on August 5th, 2016.
If you too want to add any of the fenty shoes to your collection you'll have to be on your A game. If you're looking to purchase them online, set an alarm and be on your retailer of choice's website a solid 10 minutes before with your card and billing info ready to go. It's not a bad idea to have several backup websites open in case the first of your choosing sells out of your favorite color/size.
If you're interested in buying them in-store, call your local shoe stores the day before the drop to confirm they will be carrying them, or you can use Footlocker's "Launch Locator" online. The day of the launch, I suggest arriving to the store at least 30 minutes prior to them opening and waiting in line. Disclaimer: many of the shoe stores only allow you to buy two pairs and they must be in different colors.
The super plush footbed and the satin strap with the faux fur is the perfect shoe to give any outfit that "bad gal" twist. For me, I envisioned them to be the ideal shoe for those "I'm totally wearing last night's makeup and outfit in public rn, but I'm still extra af" moments as I stroll into starbs wearing my oversized sunnies. Many celebs and bloggers alike have rocked these fluffy summer must-haves in a variety of ways (Some of my favorites pictured below). With four color options including white, black, pastel pink, and the newest addition grey, the outfit combinations are endless.
These are definitely the shoe I'll be rockin' all Summer '16.
