Last night (November 29) at the 30th annual Footwear News Achievement Awards, Rihanna was presented with the award for Shoe of the Year for the Fenty Puma Creeper.

The shoe has had incredible success since its launch in September 2015, selling out in hours every single time new pairs were released. Rihanna, of course, arrived to the FNAAs wearing a black and white pair of Creepers.

Rihanna is the first woman to win the Shoe of the Year award. Kanye West won the award for the Yeezy Boost 350 in 2015 and Stan Smith won for the Adidas Stan Smith sneaker in 2014.

In her speech, Rihanna said that the award makes her “proud to be a woman and proud to be a young woman from Barbados, especially.”

The singer and designer said she never expected people to love the Creepers as much as she does.

“I didn’t expect people to love it the way I do, and the way they’ve supported it means so much to me.”

She also gave a shoutout to her fans and inspiration: “All the Creeper fans and all the kids in the street who inspire me by doing things their own way.”
