After a five-year performance hiatus, Rihanna made a stunning comeback, headlining the 57th Super Bowl Halftime Show. Everything about her show was iconic, from the LED-lit, suspended platforms to a sea of backup dancers decked out in white puffer hoodies to her mid-show makeup touch-up (of course, it was Fenty). But I would be remiss if I forgot to mention the outfit that helped RiRi deliver such an outstanding show. The mogul was decked in an all-red ensemble, wearing a belted jumpsuit (hello, baby bump) with a sculpted corset and floor-length blanket coat. Our favorite part of her look, though? Her sporty and functional Maison Margiela sneakers.

Because when one headlines the Super Bowl halftime show, one must be comfortable!

Maison Margiela x Salomon, Cross Low Sneakers — $360.00

Sizes available: 6-11

Rihanna’s footwear of choice for the 57th Super Bowl Halftime Show, the Maison Margiela and Salomon Cross Low sneakers are a playful spin on hiking shoes and drawstring. The shoe boasts a polyester upper that’s both flexible and breathable and a drawstring tie that makes putting on the shoe easy. With a rugged Salomon sole, these kicks are durable on all types of terrain, no matter if you’re hitting the trails or strutting on pavement. While we may never come close to emulating RiRi’s style, these shoes bring us one step closer to her closet.

So, what's all the hype about? Designed in collaboration with French sports company Salomon, Maison Margiela's Cross Low sneakers were made to "perform." The shoe marries fashion and function with its rubber sole. Derived from Salomon's signature rugged pattern, the sole makes the shoe ideal for walking across all types of terrain, be it road, trail, or in RiRi's case, a suspended platform. Beyond these specs, the shoe is extra stylish, representative of Rihanna's effortless aesthetic.

The red polyester outer is contrasted by a pink and ruby red polyurethane, giving these kicks a streetwear and futuristic look that's hard not to swoon over. Instead of laces, the shoe features a drawstring tie that fastens easily and requires little to no time to put on. Plus, it comes in three fun and classic colors: black, dark green, and orange red (the color Rihanna wore at the Super Bowl).

It's no wonder why everyone is swooning over her shoes. Unfortunately, RiRi's actual Super Bowl sneakers may be out of reach for some—no thanks to the $360 price tag—but we did the leg work and found some dupes that are just as comfy and fashionable as the Maison Margiela sneakers. For example, Sorel's Kinetic Impact II Strap Sneaker ($145) has a rugged sole and pointed toe that mimics Rihanna's kicks for a fraction of the price. They're lightweight, stylish, and just as comfy as RiRi's.

Ahead, you'll find more replicas for Rihanna's iconic Super Bowl shoes. Now, let's see you "work, work, work, work, work, work" in them!

Sizes available: 5-12, in half sizes

For a fraction of the price, you can cop the “Umbrella” singer’s Super Bowl comfort and style with Sorel’s Kinetic Impact II Strap Sneaker. The wavy, rugged sole mimics that of the Maison Margiela and Salomon kicks and provides stability no matter what surface the shoe comes in contact with. Lightweight, breathable, and stylish with a burst of bright colors, the Kinetic Impact II is how you’ll get RiRi’s look for less.

anacapa hoka sneakers
Hoka, Anacapa Mid GTX — $184.00

Sizes available: 5-11

Similar to Rihanna’s original shoe choice, the Hoka Anacapa is also a multi-terrain shoe that’s designed for the trails but looks pretty fabulous when worn as an everyday pair of sneaks. It’s got that same chunky look (a design that Hoka is well known for), and has features like waterproof nubuck leather, GORE-TEX footwear fabric, and an ultra grippy Vibram® Megagrip rubber sole with 5mm lugs). It doesn’t come in a brighter red like Rihanna’s shoes, but we did spot a “Hot Sauce” color that’ll make whatever outfit you’re wearing pop.

Pair it with a jumpsuit to complete the look.
