SneakHER Style: Rihanna Pairs Puma Creepers With a LaQuan Smith See-Through Maxi

Rihanna is a big LaQuan Smith fan! The songstress was spied over the weekend in Brazil for her Rock In Rio concert appearance in a braided embroidered Cleopatra maxi dress from Smith’s Spring 2016 collection: Rihannas-Rio-De-Janeiro-Rockin-Rio-Concert-LaQuan-Smith-Spring-2016-Italian-Braided-Embroidered-Cleopatra-Maxi-Dress-in-Money-Green-

Sheer is the operative word for this see-through maxi and Rihanna, always one to take fashion risks, paired the frock with a black string bikini underneath. The singer rounded out the look with a pair of her Fenty x Puma Creepers in wheat.

LaQuan-Smith-Ready-to-Wear-Spring-2016-16-667x1000

The dress, from LaQuan's Spring 2016 collection, was originally modeled in gold with Rihanna rocking a similar design (no doubt custom) in BBHMM green.

Rihanna's Puma x Rihanna WMNS Creeper looks to be a lighter custom shade made especially for the pop princess, but you can nab a similar look in the recently release wheat colorway. Ringing in at $120.00, the sneakers feature a suede classic upper silhouette and a double-wide rubber creeper sole with leather liner and waxed laces,

3-Rihannas-Rio-De-Janeiro-Rockin-Rio-Concert-LaQuan-Smith-Spring-2016-Italian-Braided-Embroidered-Cleopatra-Maxi-Dress-in-Money-Green-

I definitely think Ri looks gorgeous! Personally, I'd have loved to see this dress in a knee length cut to show off the shoes a bit more and perhaps the black and white Creepers would have been a better color selection, but I certainly can appreciate Ri for rocking her own brand no matter the getup.

What do you think?

Wish List: Emmi Teams Up With Asics For a Ladies Exclusive Gel Lyte V

Whenever I see 'ladies-only' in a sneaker headline I feel pretty giddy all over. Emmi, a Japenese Women's retailer, has teamed up with Asics for a ladies-only exclusive Gel Lyte V. The sneaker seems to be completely built for the fairer sex complete with a simple color way and intricate features. Just like us gals, huh? LOL.

A perforated leather toe box, tweed and rope laces combine for a sporty-chic look while a "houndtooth" design (used regularly in women's clothing) lends a femine feel. Women's exclusive or not, hats off to these two brands for a well executed take on a classic model.

This sneaker will be available starting in November in Japan for approximately $158 (or ¥17,000). You can find more details and pre-order now at emmi.jp.

Happy Monday ladies and gents! Can you believe we're already at the end of September? Make sure you bring the good vibes into October!

Check our our weekend sneaker style recap!

cara-delevingne-rock-in-rio-in-brazil-september-2015_10 Brazil was the move for model Cara Delevingne who embraced her inner rock star at Rock In Rio over the weekend. Cara was spotted strutting onto the grounds wearing a Jennifer Meyer Turquoise Inlay and Lapis Center Eye Necklace with Diamonds, Bo.Bo.

Take a look at our picks below.

E-Finds: Yeezy Season For Your Infant With Picasso Babe

I originally peeped this brand back in the spring whilst on an e-peruse session that I remember to be both productive and exhausting. Unfortunately, Picasso Babe got lost in the shuffle of my email reminders and never saw it's very on post. Well, that ends today. Picasso Babe (yes, named after the Jay-Z song "Picasso Baby") is an Etsy retailer specializing in custom knit booties for your tiny human. The company offers a splendid catch, though: knitted booties made in the style of some of our favorite (and most overhyped) sneaker silhouettes. I don't about you, but I've tried buying shoes for my friend's newborn bambinos and it's a no go unless the kid is born wearing at least a 2 or 3.

The Spain-based Etsy shop had a solution for our sneaker obsessed culture (what a world the kids are born into, right?) and released a collection of hyped releases like the adidas Yeezy 750 Boost, Nike Air Yeezy II, and the Nike Air MAG.

il_570xN.781773663_8coh

il_570xN.781774477_4x44

After teaming with a big baller of internet pit-stops (hello, Highsnobiety) the folks at Picasso shifted their focus to sneaker classics including the Air Jordan 1, adidas Originals Superstar, Nike Air Force 1, Vans Sk8-Hi, Reebok Instapump Fury, PUMA Clyde and Converse Chuck Taylor All Star.

il_570xN.781769709_nz4p

il_570xN.779786755_i9ux

Now the Spanish baby bootie supplier has returned with a fresh new version to add to its collection for the smallest of sneakerheads: the Yeezy Boost 350. The sneaker’s seamless upper and rubber sole are exchanged for a handmade crochet knit, fitting babies up to the age of 1 year.

unnamed

I can think of a few new moms who would absolutely love these mini replicas! However, there's a catch. While these mini mocs are nearly as expensive as the real deal, they don't come baby cheap, either. If you're down to spend anywhere from $75 USD to $364 USD for the entire "West Pack", head over to the brand’s online store to cop a pair.

Kicks Of The Week: Lily Aldridge, Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys, Kendall Jenner x More!

Happy Saturday folks! I've been a bit under the weather (sinus infections are no joke, y'all) so, my apologies that this post is coming a bit late - Sudafed will have you schleep! That said, our KOTW rundown couldn't wait another day. Take a look below at a few celeb sneaker style moments we absolutely adored.

vanessa-hudgens-starbucks-md214964 Vanessa Hudgens made a Starbucks run in a pair of magical Nike Flyknit Lunar 3.

Kylie-Jenner-at-LAX-Airport--04-662x978 Kylie Jenner, fresh from NYFW fare, walked tall in LAX wearing Air Jordan 1 Retro High, Gosha Rubchinskiy Logo T-Shirt and Yummie by Heather Thomson Rachel Leggings.

victor-cruz-air-jordan-71 Victor Cruz and his gorgeous fiance Elaina Watley were the picture of couple perfection at a Nike event in NYC.  While Victor and Elaina were busy smiling for the camera we were busy checking out her Nike Air Rift sneakers.

Kendall-Jenner--Marc-Jacobs-Fashion-Show-Spring-2016-NYFW--26-662x993 Kendall Jenner traipsed around NYC looking fab in Adidas Originals Stan Smith sneaks, Solace London Novin Trousers, and a Solace London Parker Top.

Lorde made her way through NYC, pink eye and all, in the adidas Yeezy Boost 350.  Yea...Lorde, you might want to get that taken care of.

SneakHER Style: Gigi Hadid in DVF, Lucy Paris x adidas Originals

With NYFW taking over the streets of NYC, it could have been very easy for some of our favorite sneaker-loving ladies to get lost in the shuffle. Lucky for us, Gigi Hadid and her impeccable sense of style didn't skip a beat as she walked through Manhattan in adidas Originals Superstar Sneakers, a Diane von Furstenberg Secret Agent Leather and Croc Tote, Diane von Furstenberg Resort 2016 animal print trench, Donna Mizani Cropped Mock Top and a very reasonably priced (hello, $65.00!) Lucy Paris Polka Dot Skater Skirt. Sneakherstyle-Gigi-Hadid

980x

Tired of the same khaki trench? Apparently, Diane heard all our cries, and introduced a trench that makes a roar of a statement. Black and white classic zebra print makes this a trench you can use to dress us something casual or accentuate a dolled up look.

donna-mizani-cropped-white-top-pic204812

Gigi's mock turtle neck style sleeveless top Mock featured a stretch, tight fitting silhouette. This top is cropped and includes slightly larger armholes.

lucy-paris-polka-dot-skater-skirt-pic214237

Her skirt is an amazingly cute black and white acrylic/cotton blend is an item that could definitely pull double duty in your closet. The unlined skirt measures approx 16" in length which makes it perfect for work and play.

tumblr_nuop1sweGX1sm8319o1_1280

Gigi, who is definitely a sneaker lover, decided on a comfortable classic with the adidas Originals' 'Superstar' sneaks in white. This white leather version feels modern and minimalist, with the label's tonal '3-Stripe' and 'Trefoil' signatures serving as the only embellishments. Pairing  them with a skirt makes for an unexpected yet chic combination.
