Puma Roma Patent History
The Puma Roma Patent is based on one of the most iconic shoes of the brand—the Puma Roma. The original model was launched in 1968 to honor the Italian football team which hosted and won the UEFA championship. The Roma was a low-cut running shoe which combined style and performance in one.
The classic had a T toebox design, a rubber mudguard, and a heel counter made of leather. The silhouette came out in different versions throughout the years, one of which is the Puma Roma Patent. Instead of the nylon and suede upper of the original, the Roma Patent features a shiny synthetic leather.
