Last month, Rihanna and Puma released a beautiful fur slipper that came in white, black, and my personal favorite, pink. It was only a matter of time before they were sold out, both in store and online. Customers were dropping $80 on the new shoe.

I am a Rihanna fan, but I’m a fan of my bank account even more so. If you’re anything like me, saving money while still being up to date on the new trends is important to you. Since I was not willing to pay the $80 for RiRi’s new shoe, I paid $26 for a simple D.I.Y.

What you’ll need:

  1. A pair of Nike Slides
  2. 1 6ft. boa (in a color of your choice)
  3. Hot glue gun and hot glue gun sticks

Step 1: On a covered surface, warm up your glue gun and cut the boa in half.

Step 2: The boa has a rope in the middle of it, taking that rope, hot glue the boa to the top of the Nike slides. Glue in a ‘S’ or snake like movement so that there aren’t any gaps in between the fur. (Allow each row to dry before moving on to the next row.

Step 3: Once the top of the slides are filled, trim the fur down to your liking. I trimmed the side that would be touching the ground to minimize the chances of things getting caught inside of it. I also trimmed the top down so that it looked even.
