PUMA is no stranger to revisiting the classics, having re-released its 1980s-bred Ralph Sampson OG sneaker earlier this week. The lifestyle brand has quickly followed up with more goods from its archival vault, announcing the revival of its ROMA 68 OG, a model created in 1968 in tandem with Italy’s first-ever Euro Cup Victory that year.
Decades later, the classic silhouette is making its return for 2019 with its signature details intact. Its simple low-top silhouette sets the foundation, while the soft “Whisper White” and “Blue Yonder” colorway recalls the original edition. PUMA has strapped the kicks with a premium leather upper, gum outsole and reinforced heel to retain the sporty elements of the archetype. For branding, a metallic gold “PUMA Roma” logo rests on the side panel, while the brand’s trademark leaping cat sits on the back heels.
