The PUMA Roma in history

Resurrected from PUMA’s extensive archive, the track shoe PUMA Roma was first released in 1968. It was specifically designed for sprints and hurdles and other track and field sports. The shoe was initially designed with a padded nylon-suede material.

The shoe was re-issued in the 2000s with a padded tongue and better arch support. An added improvement was the use of synthetic leather upper and a more modern color palette from the original all-white when it was introduced.
