Puma Roma 68 Vintage in black

We have featured these before to a positive response, so we thought we would flag up as new version of the Puma Roma 68 Vintage trainers, this time in black. As we mentioned previously, the trainers were introduced in 1968 to honour the National Italian Football Team winning the European […]

BFI to release The Pleasure Girls (1965)

Another 60s-style trainer has been reissued once more – the Adidas Vintage Gazelle OG, which is here in a gold and black suede finish. Originally seen in 1968, this version of the Gazelle still has the streamlined shape, but also throws in that gold suede upper, contrast black striping and […]
