Puma Roma 68 Vintage History

Going back to 1924, the Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik, translated to “Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory,” was founded by the Dassler brothers, Rudolf and Adolf, in the small town of Herzogenaurach, Germany. The Dassler brothers were the brains of the spiked-soled shoe that Jesse Owens, an American track star, wore during the Summer Olympics in 1936.

Unfortunately, the Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory didn’t last long as the Rudolf and Adolf went on separate ways and pushed on building their own company each. Rudolf Dassler went on to build “Ruda,” which eventually was renamed into “Puma Schuhfabrik Rudolf Dassler,” or simply as “Puma.”

Puma has established quite a reputation throughout the years since its founding as one of the top-leading sports brands internationally, creating shoes for the top athletes in the world. Eventually, the brand embraced the lifestyle side of the footwear industry and expanded its product line, producing silhouettes that are fashion and leisure centric. 

The Puma Roma was initially a track sneaker when it was released in 1968, and the brand resurrected it from its archive to give it a chance in the sneaker industry as a lifestyle shoe. When it was re-issued in the 2000s, the Roma silhouette was enhanced to have better arch support and a padded collar. 

Renditions of the Puma Roma also came out and among these is the Puma Roma 68 Vintage. It features the design structure of the main model with a premium leather upper sitting atop the rubber sole.
