Size and fit

The low-top Puma Roma Suede is offered in men’s size. Some have shared that a longer than average break-in period should be expected. Also, a few complained that it felt too narrow. While these potential issues are not absolute, being knowledgeable of the return policy will definitely help buyers to have peace of mind when ordering online.

As the name suggests, this version of Roma has a suede upper that gives proper comfort and a lightweight feel. Its lace-up enclosure could be utilized to have a snug or loose fit.

Puma Roma Suede Style

Vintage is the operative word when describing the Puma Roma Suede. The Puma Roma sneaker and the suede material have been among the brand’s proud trademarks because of their unwavering appeal. This running-inspired sneaker may not be fit for doing sports, but due to its design, many could see it as an outstanding casual footwear.

Bearing the same silhouette but in a suede upper, the Puma Roma Suede is relatively consistent with what the original model is offering - a lightweight sneaker that delivers comfort. Pairing the Puma Roma sneakers in Suede with casual clothes will never be an issue. A mix of retro vibe and elegance is what this footwear is all about.

Notable Features

While the retro aesthetic and suede upper is the Puma Roma Suede’s main selling point, its other aspects are nothing to scoff at. The soft midsole allows a sufficient amount of cushioning that helps during standing up or walking for extended hours. Arch support is also expected with this sneaker, which is a bonus for those who are flat-footed.  

Puma Roma Suede History

Rudolf Dassler, the co-founder of Adidas, decided to separate himself from the shoe company by establishing his own. Dassler finally did it in 1948. Aiming to compete with his brother’s company directly, he started manufacturing soccer cleats for various soccer clubs in Germany. During the initial decades, Puma experienced steady growth because of its product expansion into other sports such as running and basketball.

Fast-forward to modern times, Puma has a respectable catalog of lifestyle sneakers. A large percentage of its casual shoes come from its elite selection of performance footwear that gained notoriety in the sporting world. Its most famous footwear, the Puma Suede was initially made for running, but due to its revolutionary upper material, it found its way into an integral part of street-style fashion. To a lesser degree, another model that managed to be among the revered classics is the Puma Roma.

The Puma Roma was introduced in 1968 and was designed to be used for different types of activities and sports such as hurdles, sprints, marathons, and track & field. Since then, subsequent Puma Roma shoes have been released. One of its contemporary versions is the Puma Roma Suede. Made available in 2015, this iteration features the iconic suede as its upper in multiple colorways.
