German brand Puma, since it was established, in 1948 has been manufacturing athletic performance shoes. Founded in the Bavarian town of Herzogenaurach by Rudolf Dassler, The company was first called Ruda.
However, Dassler then changed the name of the company into Puma, a shortened version of the Puma Schuhfabrik Rudolf Dassler. Initially making soccer shoes, the company diversified its shoe manufacturing and produced other shoes intended for various sports.
All these shoes carried the recognizable branding which Dassler introduced, the Puma sans-serif typeface with a picture logo. A Formsrip, which was initially intended to stabilize shoes, was later on presented as a typical trademark of Puma shoes. In 1967, a jumping cat logo was created by cartoonist Lutz Backes completing the recognizable mark of the brand.
In the succeeding years, Puma has taken pride in itself as a leading shoe manufacturer creating shoes meant to perform as well as influence style. One of these designs is the Puma Roma which was first introduced as a running trainer in 1968.
Manufactured using the padded nylon-suede material, the Puma Roma was resurrected from the brand’s extensive archive. The shoe which was then designed for running sprints, hurdles and other track sports was transformed into a stylish classic sneaker in varying colors.
The first reissue of the Puma Roma shoes started some 40 years later since it was launched in the early 2000s with an updated padded tongue and better arch support. The Puma Roma OG Nylon released in 2016 retained the original Nylon material to take back wearers into memory lane and feel the moment when the running trainer was at the peak of its popularity.
