Rihanna and Melissa Forde were spotted out shopping in NYC’s SoHo neighborhood on Friday. The BFFs for life were twinning once again in matching sporty street-style ensembles. Mel borrowed from the boys an ASSK wrap logo sweatshirt and shorts, while RiRi showed the San Antonio Spurs some love in the basketball team’s jersey and flared pants. The two added touches of chic through heavy metal jewelry, femme fatale nails, and designer handbags.
How are these pictures not a fashion shoot or a hair commercial? Peep Mel and bad gal RiRi looking flawless while taking a stroll in NYC:

RiRi’s sneakers, on the other hand, are also PUMAs but they have been custom-changed by Mr. Completely. A ridged platform was added, turning the flat sneakers into very trendy, punk-inspired creepers.
RiRi owns a number of these sneakers-turned-creeper including an all-white pair that she wore when she was named new creative director/brand ambassador of PUMA.
