Rihanna stays winning and we’re here for it. Just yesterday it was announced that she’s 2016’s highest paid black female in music, and now she can add “shoe of the year” to her already poppin’ resume.
“In my wildest dreams, I never would have imagined an honor like Shoe of the Year,” she told Footwear News. “It means so much to me to make a mark like this in the shoe industry and to have so many people share my love for the Creeper.”
According to Footwear News, Rih’s Creeper was the “only choice for the 2016 shoe of the year.” Their criteria for selecting shoe of the year is based on retail sales, consumer feedback, social media prowess and the overall buzz surrounding the shoe.
Apparently this particular award has only been handed out two other times prior to Rih’s win. Kanye West won the award last year for his Adidas Yeezy Boost 350’s, and tennis player Stan Smith took home the award the year before with his own shoe with Adidas.
Rihanna will accept the award at the 30th annual Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York on November 29th.
