Rated 5 out of 5Â by Driftwood Finally brought back a real classic!
I have been looking off an on for years on the Originals site for a pair of ROM's, which were the absolute most classic shoe of the 70s and even early 80s and I finally saw them up here. I have friends who were bringing them back from Amsterdam and other parts of Europe, but I could not find them here until now.
The only knock I have on them is that they are not the original, iconic royal blue stripes. In their time, there was the ROM with the blue stripes, the Vienna with the red stripes, and I cannot remember which had the green stripes.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mr. Topcat Adidas Rom
I bought a pair in the 70's, another in the 80's and the last one 5 months ago. Hey Adidas, CAN you please start selling the white one with blue stripes?
I'll buy two pairs, for sure.

These always take a couple of days to break in, but once they do, they are really comfortable. Like everyone else, I prefer the Blue/White/Gum version. Please re-release them!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by adifanseventhree More narrow than tradional ROM
I compared this shoe's sole with with two previously purchased pairs of ROM shoes. These ROMs are more narrow than previous ROMs. The ROMs I've bought before fit great. These are too narrow, especially in the back. My previous two ROMs have same size sole.
Basically, don't expect these ROMs to fit because previous ROMs fit you.

These are my new favorite Adidas shoes!
I bought 2 pairs of these rad shoes. Usually I rock the Samba, but the Rom won me over this round.
The Rom is a what a Adidas shoe should be& feel like...verry comfortable and stylish.
My feet were at home as soon as I put these bad boys on :D

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BobA. Same great ROM's
I haven't had a pair of these since I was in high school, and they were really great then. Now, I don't notice anything different between my "good-ole-pair" and my "good new-pair."
I have diabetes now and I feared the shoes would be too tight. They fit perfectly. With the diabetic neuropathy in my feet it has been difficult to find comfortable shoes
Our memories always remember things better than they were and that makes me question my feeling that the old ones may have been softer.
The ROM line are great shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kerry Rock the Rom
Got a pair in white and green, these shoes are insane! They have the vintage look that I always rock, look great with a pair of fresh bootcuts and a polo. Plus, they last forever! Buy one pair and you're (basically) set for life...even though you'll wanna buy more. I've had my pair for about a year, put them through gym workouts, running, biking, mountain climbing, took them around the Grand Canyon and they still look great and feel perfect. Adidas always does it right and these are no exception, Rock the Rom.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by GonzoH Reproduction of an old classic ROM
...although its still one of my best shoes ever that i've owned, somehow it seemed more like an under par reproduction of the old classic ROM.
The fit is still good and still looks classy except i would've preferred the blue rather than the green stripes.
The sole has an entirely different feel and looks to it...not as gelly as it used to be and its missing a lot of the 3 feathers feature.
And as usual very comfortable even when i was trying to break in to it.
I'm rating it between an 80 to 90 overall.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Oleandt WHITE WITH BLUE STRIPES IN STOCK
Just kidding, but I hope to stampede the website and get their attention to bring them back.
I begrudgingly got black with green, silver, red stripe - why do this combo???
BUT they still fit LIKE A GLOVE.
If I close my eyes, they feel like they are white with blue stripes!
I wear 12, but got the 11.5 (US). Started a little tight, but after wearing them sans sox, they fit amazing.
If (WHEN) they reissue the white and blue I will get a few pairs, doubt I will wear anything else.

I was kind of worried bout buying shoes online wen i saw adidas ROM i just had to have them. Very light weight shoes, smooth leather, fit very well but most of all they go well with anything. LOVE ADIDAS ROM
