Puma Roma Basic Summer History

Puma first introduced the Roma model in 1968 to pay tribute to the Italian national football team's victory in the UEFA European Football Championship. Initially created as a running shoe, its upper was constructed from padded nylon-suede that is said to aid in the players' performance and the reason why they garnered medals in the playing field. This kick was first used in sprints before it was utilized for hurdles and other athletic events.

Some years later, the Puma Roma eventually crossed onto the lifestyle scene in the 80s and was deemed to be stylish, but was shelved after a couple of years. In 2003, the brand decided to resurrect the line and reissued the shoe in 2003, dubbed the Puma Roma 68. It features improvements like padded tongue and collar and more arch support.

Today, the classic has been given the summer aesthetic and now comes dressed in fun, vivid colors. The Puma Roma Basic Summer retains its heritage's classic silhouette and materials with an upgrade in its aesthetic.
