The slides — offered in black, white and shell (a light pink) — were first released in April on Puma’s website, in Puma stores and in select global retailers. The $80 slide sandals were offered in women’s half sizes 5.5 to 10.5.
The sandals are a new take on Puma’s classic Leadcat slides that are worn by soccer players off the pitch. The faux fur strap has a satin-foam backing and has the Puma logo embroidered on the top.
About 30 minutes after the slides went live on the Puma website, they were sold out and were subsequently listed on eBay for up to $1,000. Those who were left empty-handed will have another opportunity when Puma restocks the shoes on July 1 at 10 a.m. EDT.
Puma and Rihanna released a gray colorway of the trainers today, available for both men and women. Puma also quietly restocked the white colorway for women on its site today, too.
