Rihanna was laced with a major honor at the 30th Footwear News Achievement Awards.
Thanks to her FENTY PUMA Creeper sneaker, the ANTI superstar was presented with Shoe of the Year at the “Shoe Oscars,” which were held at IAC Headquarters in New York City on Tuesday (Nov. 29).
“I didn’t really expect people to love it the way I do,” Bad Gal said while accepting the honor. “It means so much to me to be receiving this award tonight.”
Prior to the ceremony, the “Umbrella” star shared a similar sentiment of disbelief. “In my wildest dreams, I never would have imagined an honor like Shoe of the Year,” she said. “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.”
RiRi wasn’t the only star in attendance. Zendaya also obtained the Launch of the Year award for Daya by Zendaya, an honor presented by Michael Kors.

The award caps off an epic year for RiRi. Outside of her work with PUMA, she also released her eighth album ANTI and launched a massive world tour in support of the chart-topping project. She’s also been working on her Hollywood takeover, filming Valerian and Ocean’s Eight.
