Rihanna x PUMA Eskiva: A Boxing Shoe Gets an Update

Barely a month after Rihanna released her debut collection with PUMA, she follows it up with the Eskiva women’s sneaker, a sleek update of the Gong boxing shoe from the 70s.

While keeping true to the original silhouette, the PUMA Eskiva utilizes a soft leather upper that results in a stylish finish, and an easy lacing system for an improved fit.

You don’t even have to wear them to look badass, as evidenced by this poster of the Eskiva slung around Rihanna’s neck:

The PUMA Eskiva shoe comes in mid and high cuts, and will retail for S$159 and S$179 respectively. Available at Limited Edt and Leftfoot stores from November 1st.
