Puma Roma Anniversario Style

Proven to be a timeless sneaker, the Puma Roma is a classic shoe that is made into a hybrid iteration that fuses together the Puma King’s stitched toe and leather upper with Puma Roma’s famed tooling. True to the Roma OG shoe, this leather version presents an almost quilted-looking toe with the signature white Puma branding stripe on the sides. This iteration is a mix of classic and athletic colorways and gives off a street style, classic vibe.

The Puma Roma Anniversario is made in several colorways such as the all-white, all-black, and pomegranate. Given that this sneaker has a classic and minimal design, it matches with literally any outfit or occasion. For a street style ensemble, one can wear this with baggy pants, jeans, ripped denim over any street style-inspired tops. When going for a more casual ensemble, one can style this with jeans, cuffed joggers,  and straight-cut denim topped with casual pieces. 

Notable Features

From the Puma archive, the Roma Anniversario is built on the regular Roma tooling while the all-leather upper mimics the iconic stitched toe of Puma King for a clean look and feel. Equipped with comfort-enhancing features, this iteration of the Roma is a lightweight training shoe that is created with a thick, padded tongue and orthopaedic arch supports. 

The two-toned EVA midsole provides perfect cushioning and is perfect for shock-absorbing support and comfort. With a padded collar, it delivers comfort around the ankle. Also, the toe cap and heel are strengthened for more durability. To further intensify the Roma Anniversario’s look, the Puma wording in gold and Roma logo on the side panels add a dash of class along with a non-marking, gum rubber outsole with a special tread pattern that delivers slip-resistant traction which really sets the rest of the shoe off.
