Update: Have a look at how good the Puma Suede Platform look on foot. The crew at Mate just sent over a bunch of great photos, check them out then head over to Mate's web store to pull that trigger.
PUMA's partnership with Rihanna has been a huge success. Their Creeper silhouette has been blogged about, retweeted and hyped to the extent that it has been a hard pair to get your hands on. For those who’ve missed the RiRi edition, the Big Cat has a welcome addition to the family – the PUMA Suede Platform.
The initial drop comes with a black and a white colourway, both with high-shine gold toe boxes. As bright and shiny as the toe might be, when we look at the shoe our eyes are instantly drawn towards the chunky platform sole they sit on, the part that most resembles the aforementioned colab. On paper it sounds like a crazy shoe but when you look at it you can see how PUMA have worked these details together in perfect harmony to create a beauty of a shoe.
