The Roma is the stuff of PUMA Archive legend with its sport-turned-street style. The original, which debuted in 1968, was geared for sprints, hurdles, and sweatbands with its padded nylon-suede styling and knack for collecting medals. It's reissued here, in all its glory (less the tube socks) and is fully equipped with a padded tongue and arch support.
PUMA serves up a laid-back retro classic with this sleek sneaker.

My only complaint is that they take on a permanent odor after about 4-6 months. Maybe the issue is with my feet and not the shoes, maybe I wear the shoes tighter than they are meant to be worn. My workaround is I got some Odor eaters replacement inserts, makes them feel like brand new. Highly recommend these shoes.
Overall recommended as they are good build and very light. However make sure you get a size up, I wish I would have, but I'm making them work.
I liked these so much I purchased another pair in black. I went for a 1/2 size larger than usual and they fit better, however still seem a lit too narrow. But they look great and I get complements on them. I really like the fact that they are light and seem pretty tough. I do notice that whatever the black pair are made of (pleather), they seem to be very noisy and squeak as I bend and flex them.
Over-all, a great pair of shoes as long as you get at least a 1/2 size larger and give them time to be worked in.
The Romas were some of my least favorite. They are more comfortable than most pumas and have a softer insole. They run true to size which is larger than what Pumas run because usually they fit small.
My beef with this shoe is the fact that I need my white shoes to stay clean. I take good care of the shoes and usually some warm water does the color well. That said, this particular style is made of a different material than the usual synthetic leather. The texture almost has a semi-suede feel to it and they just would NOT stay clean. The material looked faded and off-white after just a few days, I was never able to get back that pearly white shine.
Comfort, as mentioned above is good. Size is little larger than usual. But the fact that these shoes would not stay white made me decide that I don't wish to purchase these again -- there are plenty of other styles I will continue to explore. My usual winners are the Puma G. Vila and the Drift Cat. The Drift Cat are my favorite but may be too sleek and somewhat slim for some. The G. Vila are the best casual everyday sneaker although they lack the fashionable look of the Drift Cat. I just ordered the Redon slip-ons and am very excited. They look like they have the fashionable appeal of the drift cat but are a slip on with a more unique color pattern.
Hope my review helps those that like their white pumas crisp and clean. Those people should stay away from the Roma.
In all, Puma sneakers offer a casual comfortable shoe that is athletic in its general feel but can be pulled off with most outfits and look fashionable.
