Rihanna‘s Fenty Puma Creeper has been named as Footwear News’ Shoe of the Year.

The Bajan beauty has made history as the first woman to ever receive the honor.

“Shoe of the Year is the most coveted award because it truly reflects industry dominance,” said Michael Atmore, FN’s editorial director. “Like Stan Smith and Kanye West, Rihanna made a statement shoe that drove global excitement and generated huge sales. Rihanna and Puma pushed the market in a new direction with an overnight sensation that has real legs.

In a statement to FN Rihanna said, “In my wildest dreams, I never would have imagined an honor like Shoe of the Year. It means so much to me to make a mark like this in the shoe and sneaker industry and to have so many people share my love for the Creeper.”
