UPDATE (August 13, 8:11 p.m.):

Tattoo artist Bang Bang, who is located in NYC, posted a picture of Rihanna's tattoo and also included what is alleged to be her first Puma sneaker. It's unclear if this is actually Rihanna's collaboration or custom work from designer Mr. Completely.

 

@badgalriri like I told you last night- you're my favorite person to tattoo 💙 "1988"

The announcement that Rihanna would be taking over as Puma's creative director was met with mixed reactions from female sneakerheads, but hopefully this first look at her collab is enough to win some of them over. 

Spotted by Footwear News, Rihanna took to Instagram to share the now-deleted image you see above. Accompanied by the caption "pRIHview," RiRi wasn't exactly subtle about the leak, but she was certainly swift to remove it, which is further evidence that this is indeed one of her collaborations with Puma. 

From what we can see in recent paparazzi shots, the sneaker utilizes the recognizable upper of the Puma Suede in a pink base with dark green accents. Down low, a chunky ribbed gum sole sets the collab apart from inline Suede styles. 

Check back for more details on these soon.
