On Friday (Nov. 4), Footwear News -- which hosts the annual "Shoe Oscars" and is considered the industry bible for footwear -- announced that Rihanna will be honored with their Shoe of the Year award for her highly coveted Fenty Puma by Rihanna creepers.

“In my wildest dreams, I never would have imagined an honor like ‘shoe of the year,’" Rihanna said in a press release. "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.”
