Puma Roma Reflective Style
When it's bright outside the Puma Roma Reflective is a minimal and sleek pair that could be dressed up for casual business gatherings or down for a laidback day. At night the shoe illuminates whenever hit by light, which can add style and aid in visibility. Pair it with shorts, jeans, or joggers for a casual day or dress it in chinos or slacks for a night out.
Puma Roma Reflective History
First released in 1968, the Puma Roma shoe was launched as an homage to Italy's national football team who won in the UEFA European Football Championship. Initially manufactured by Puma as a training shoe, its upper was crafted from padded nylon-suede material that is claimed to aid in the players' performance in the field.
Years passed, and the Puma Roma shoes crossed to the lifestyle arena and became the go-to casual footwear in the 80s. After being shelved for a couple of years, Puma decided to bring the Roma range back in 2003 by introducing the Puma Roma 68 in the Italian soccer team Lazio's colorway. Since then the shoe has been released in a multitude of colorways and reimaginings.
Today, the Roma is available in a reflective upper that serves a dual purpose: visual and functional. Aptly named the Puma Roma Reflective, this kick retains the original design with a dash of modern day style.
