Satin sneakers are now a thing. They made appearances on recent Gucci, Vetements, and Miu Miu runways; and — perhaps more important than all of that — they have Rihanna’s stamp of approval. Her latest Fenty x Puma release was a satin, slip-on sneaker whose girlish bow and running-shoe silhouette managed to cheekily toe the line between extravagant and loungewear, athleisure, and designer fashion. They hit stores last week, and like the creeper and fluffy slides before them, these sneakers sold out fast. (Note: The slides are still available.) Here are some other satin sneaks that haven’t sold out — yet.
The originals, which are now sold out.
Satin high-tops! In your choice of millennial pink or navy blue.
A great 50 percent off deal on slip-ons with a preppy stripe.
A stark black-and-nude contrast that’ll also add some height.
Elegant and affordable navy on navy on navy.
Not fully satin, but these Pumas also have a big satin bow similar to the original Fenty.
Jil Sander’s minimalist, cool-girl-pink pair use a ribbon for laces.
Your fancy Velcro option.
These do double duty as platforms and runners for the not-so-tall athletic type.
