Rihanna’s Fenty Trainer has been quite the topic of conversation since its unveiling. Better known on social as FENTYxPUMA The Trainer, I wasn’t sure about the shoe’s design. The exaggerated tongue offers an almost futuristic silhouette, it struck me as “interesting”.
I still don’t know how I feel about these 🤔😪 https://t.co/P6AiC66vhX

I thought on it, studied the neoprene laceless design up and down and finally decided I’d buy them. The universe heard me and the opportunity to snag the shoes four days before release appeared.
The packaging plays at luxury with a velour dust bag embroidered with the Fenty logo included. After wearing the shoe, it’s everything I’ve been wanting in a sneaker. Something I can slip on, that still has a stylish silhouette I can get away with wearing out. Thanks Rihanna. If anyone is feeling generous and wants to send the Whiteout and Red Alert colorways my way; I won’t be mad at ya.
Shoutout to Uptown in the Aventura Mall for the hospitality. They will have all three colorways in stock when they release this Friday, the 26th. So curious to see if these fly off the shelves like the Fenty Creepers.
