Solange Knowles-Designed Sneakers? Thank You, Puma Gods

Ready for an understatement? Solange Knowles has great style. And, it seems like any medium she touches, whether it's music or fashion,or hairstyles or even Instagram, becomes the coolest thing on the planet. It makes perfect sense, then, that Puma would want her on its team. Last night, the singer announced that she would be the new art director and creative consultant at the shoe company.
Says Knowles, "It is in my new role that I am able to express my love for not only design but the conception of creative ideas, and the execution of them by curating amazingly talented teams. I’ve had so much fun producing special content, ad campaigns, events, and working alongside the awesome Puma team with some of my favorite emerging artists, photographers, graphic designers to create activations that really celebrates both mine and PUMA’s approach and philosophies."

Knowles tapped a few friends with wicked style, including Saada Ahmed and Jill Martinelli Wimberly of Lady Grey, to show off four of her sneaker styles on Who What Wear. And, trust: These definitely aren't your average trainers. With a hodgepodge of prints, colors, and textures, these are basically everything we love about the singer's style, boiled down to a shoe you'll want to wear every single day.
