A brand new version of Rihanna’s iconic Puma Creeper is arriving just in time for the holiday season.
Introducing the Creeper Phatty, an oversized iteration of the original sneaker featuring a stacked gum sole and thick laces. The “bigger, bolder and phatter” update, as described by Puma, will be available in sizes for the whole family and offered in classic black and white, plus two eye-catching colorways to choose from.

The bold suede style complete with a padded, debossed formstrip and Fenty stamp on the tongue will come in a vibrant shade of blue and neon green as well as purple and cherry red.
“We took our OG Creeper and made it bigger and badder,” Rihanna said in a statement. “When designing the Creeper Phatty we wanted to reinvent the OG Creeper that was loved by so many. It’s a classic silhouette that has been missed, so its return had to be bigger.”
Rihanna and Puma launched the first Creeper, an elevated version of the brand’s signature Suede silhouette in 2015. The style flew off shelves and would win Shoe of the Year at the FN Achievement Awards the following year.

Earlier this year, Puma CEO Arne Freundt teased Rihanna’s return to the brand in a two-word press release that read: “She’s back.” Puma first tapped the “Work” hitmaker as creative director of its womenswear line in 2014 before she came out with her own Fenty x Puma line.
The Fenty Puma Creeper Phatty will be available to shop via puma.com and global retailers including Foot Locker on Nov. 30 starting at 10 a.m. EST.
