Puma Roma Texture History

The Puma Roma Texture is based on the silhouette of the 1968 shoe, the Puma Roma. Although the shoe was launched in tribute to Italy’s football team winning the UEFA championship, the Puma Roma was a running shoe. The original had a low-profile cut, “T” toebox design, a leather heel tab, and a rubber mudguard. The stylish look and superior performance of the footwear combined to make it one of Puma’s iconic sneakers.

Puma has reissued several Roma iterations a few times since then including a 2008 release called the Puma Roma 68. The Puma Roma 68 had one colorway, the white/team royal, with a leather upper and suede formstripes. Three other colorways in that same release featured materials from football jerseys as a tribute to the Italia 68 football team. The model also featured in a few collaborations including one in 2017 with German designer, Tomas Maier.

The Puma Roma Texture is another iteration of the popular model. The modified silhouette features a scale-embossed texture on the synthetic leather upper. It has a wedge midsole and cushioning around the collar and footbed.
