It is not a secret Bad gal Ri Ri is the female MJ of sneakers.
Rihanna is the first woman to win the Shoe of the Year award. Kanye West won the honor for the Yeezy Boost 350 in 2015.
Last night, Rihanna accepted her award. Read her acceptance speech below.
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.”
She continued, “I didn’t expect people to love it the way I do, and the way they’ve supported it means so much to me,” Rihanna said.
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.”
