This is not a drill: Shoe store Transit has Fur Slides by Fenty, Rihanna's latest Puma collaboration that basically look like a fancy shower shoe and are sold out everywhere else, in all three colors and in a variety of sizes — but it'll cost you.
Racked editor-in-chief Britt Aboutaleb spotted them this afternoon and confirmed their authenticity with the store owner, who bought the shoes and marked them up from their relatively reasonable $80 retail value (because who wouldn't?). The black and white pairs each go for $140, and the more popular pink ones are $280. But apparently, you can haggle those down to $200.
The store is proudly displaying its marked-up merch in a glass case. If you're serious about scoring a pair, get thyself downtown stat; see more store details below.
