Rihanna pays tribute to Bob Marley in Custom Timberland Boots.

While Rihanna may be one of the hottest Caribbean exports since Scotch bonnet peppers (look it up!), the Bajan singer has never forgotten her roots. Whether dedicating her MTV Video Vanguard Award last year to her tiny island home, or propelling her patois-inspired hit 'Work' to chart-topping success, retaining a sense of proximity to the rhythms of her home are wildly significant. Hence, the custom Bob Marley Timberland boots the singer broke out in New York City. In her red-, yellow-, and green-paint-splattered boots, adorned with a hand-painted portrait of the reggae legend, Rihanna made a swift exit from her Soho apartment.

In addition to Marley's visage, the boots also feature images of two of Rihanna's other loves-a pot leaf and a Puma logo-a perfect way for the shoe designer to salute her creative influences. She dressed up the Donnell McFadden Brooks-customised pair with a slouchy cool laced-up fleece Fenty x Puma sweatsuit from her sold-out collection. Even in the dead of winter, Rihanna brings the island vibes to the rest of the world.
