An ultimate star of track-and-field, PUMA's low cut retro Roma sneaker gets a re-release in a washed-out plush rose suede, complemented by a unique Paisley print lining. We shot the sneaker exclusively in Berlin for the German sportswear label and for Finish Line, the prominent U.S. sneaker store who'll be dropping the sneaker soon as part of their continuing collaboration with PUMA.
First introduced in 1968, the Roma was the label's signature athletic shoe, with its padded nylon-suede styling giving support and helping it secure medals and award for athletes pretty much the moment it was introduced. For Fall/Winter 2015, however, the shoe gets a comfort upgrade with thick padded tongue and orthopedic arch supports. With a solid rubber outsole and an EVA midsole, lightweight durability and a bit of bounce is the name of the game here.
As standard, the now thoroughly retro sneaker features the label's signature Formstrip on the medial and lateral flanks, with brand and sneaker-model gold call-out on the lateral for a fancy finish. Finish Line stocks it soon.
PUMA’s Roma is just another sneaker that continues to join the sport and style worlds perfectly, with many more now stocked and showcased at PUMA’s new stores located at select Finish Line locations. Have a look at our exclusive shots of the Roma before heading direct to Finish Line to cop. Find you nearest store here.
