When Rihanna first teamed up with Puma for a range of clothing and footwear, we were certain the pairing would result in several killer pieces and that it did. 

And if the thousands of #OOTD posts and celebrity endorsements were proof enough that the collaboration was a serious fashion force, one of the pieces in the Fenty x Puma collection has just been named 'Shoe of the Year' by Footwear News.

The Fenty x Puma creeper took home the top honour, making Rihanna the first ever female to win the award. Kanye West took home the prize last year for his Yeezy Boost 350 sneaker and Adidas won in 2014 for their Stan Smith sneaker. 

The singer will collect her award at Footwear News' Achievement Awards ceremony in NYC on November 29, and she took to Instagram to celebrate the victory:

Rihanna showed her second collection for the label in Paris this year to rave reviews, so we're sure there are plenty more awards coming her way.
