Black suede set on white platforms, with ribbons laces: creepers. No, they aren’t the Fenty ones, but they come pretty close and will save you some cash. This pair was recently put on the market and as soon as I saw them, I knew that they’d be my splurge purchase of the month (they call it retail therapy for a reason).
Overall, the shoes are amazing and I’m so happy to have gotten them. If you’re considering getting a pair, do it! They’re comfortable, good quality and more than easy on the eyes. The shoes come in different colour-ways, namely red, blue, all black or cream with a metallic toe box. Mine are black and white, the perfect neutral combination. We shot the photos while out late one night, on a rooftop somewhere in the city.
Not only am I petite, but I’m pretty short too, hence my obsession with platform’s; I need all the height I can get. I’ve wanted to get something from Puma for a while now (I was, in part, inspired by the iconic red Puma’s worn by Shaolin Fantastic in my favourite series of the year, The Get Down) and this seemed like the perfect purchase. When it comes to investment pieces, I opt for shoes. Not only because I love them (it was one of my first spoken words as a baby), but because I know I’ll use them often and get my money’s worth out of each durable wear.
You can find the Puma’s at a variety of stores. I got mine from Superbalist (look out for discount voucher codes!). Keep an eye out for ‘Run The Streets,’ a campaign by Puma x The Weeknd, launching in November.
