Viva Italia

Launched in 1968, the Roma was released as an all round training shoe. This Limited Edition is a 1-1 re-issue back in its original spec and color-way. The upper is a clean silhouette of white team royal in a plush leather with super soft suede overlays. Subtle attention to detail appears with the addition of old school cotton laces as well as the original Puma gold sticker of authenticity in the sockliner.

The Roma, much like many other styles released during the 60’s and 70’s is a style that continues to stand the test of time. A terrace favorite back then, Puma pays tribute with this release to the Roma fans and Azzuri European Champions of 1968.

The other 3 colorways are a more direct tribute to the Italia 68 football team.

All shoes feature the Italia blue football jersey material on the lining referencing Italy's 2 World Cup victories at that time.

The collection is now EXCLUSIVELY available at Sole What?
