The PUMA Roma Weave is going to be one of the most overlooked sneakers of the summer, specifically because it is so versatile. Dropping at Champs Sports on June 24 in four full colors–black, white, grey, and even red–this sneaker might not be as popular as the Nike Roshe Run, but honestly, what shoe is? The Roshe Run has taken the baton from classics like the Air Force One to become this generation’s defining lifestyle sneaker. Still, with so many sneakerheads out there trying to be unique and different in 2015, there’s room for more than just a bunch of wannabes.
That’s where the Roma Weave comes in, one of the game’s most underrated gems.
The Roma is an all-time classic silhouette, coming from an all-time classic brand. It has its roots in 1968 as an athletic shoe for track and field athletes that featured nylon-suede styling. Over the years, the shoe has transitioned from an on-field one to a more lifestyle shoe, one which now features an upgraded padded tongue, more arch support, a new leather upper, and yes, the aforementioned new blocking colors.
While new trends are constantly infiltrating the game, the summer is unique in that it’s the best time of the year to rock retro looks. PUMA just looks amazing when you’re in tank-tops and cut-off jeans, and on your way to the beach.
Before you’re out copping at Champs Sports, though, make sure you know what you’re doing. Get your game right. Get your swag right. Today, we’re Ranking the 4 Champs Sports Exclusive Colorways for the PUMA Roma Weave.
