When an accessory receives Rihanna’s seal of approval, we all sit up and take note. Amina Muaddi’s Ursina pumps are one such product. Rihanna knows a great heel when she sees one, and she’s rarely parted from her Ursinas.
The Ursinas have been a permanent fixture in Rihanna’s wardrobe for some time. It was Muaddi’s heels that she turned to for her pregnancy announcement portraits. Barely visible beneath her baggy Vetements jeans, Rihanna wore the stiletto pumps in a deep Bordeaux hue, with a diamanté strap buckled around her ankle. Comfort to Rihanna is a heel she can rely upon for the most important occasions. The fact that she’s worn them on repeat, even in her final trimester, is proof that she holds them dear.
More Muaddi highlights from Rihanna include the look she wore to the latest Gucci show: a patent crop top, trousers sitting beneath her growing belly, a chainmail headpiece and pink pixelated snakeskin Ursinas with a citrine-adorned ankle strap. Testament to the shoe’s versatility, she wore them again for an outing in LA with a terry Bottega bralette, pastel Vetements jeans and an R13 workwear jacket.

The pristine white and camo satin colourways are other favorites. Rihanna sported the former at her Savage X Fenty Vol. 3 show, and the latter on multiple night outs, often with one of her many head-turning miniskirts.
Models Anok Yai and Hailey Bieber have fallen for Amina Muaddi’s Ursina heels, too. Like Rihanna, Hailey has worn hers with bare legs to show off their full potential. Anok, meanwhile, wore hers with a scene-stealing LBD to the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party last month.
Take their word for it, Amina Muaddi’s Ursina pumps are an investment worth your while.
