Public Royalty, a men’s sneaker line, was officially launched in 2004 at Pomona, California. The brand was launched in response to the lack of funky men’s sneakers. The label is owned by Nunez and Rothman Enterprises Inc.
The footwear line was built upon the success of the edgy women’s sneaker line, Punkrose. It is inspired by different elements including music, surf, skate, art, fashion, snow and everything else in between. The Public Royalty collections feature innovative foot fashion that breaks away from traditional sneaker design.
Public Royalty has a wide array of urban footwear to choose from, including:
The Retro Pinstripe hi-top has a pinstripe outer design, patent trim décor, hi-top design with padded ankle, embroidered brand logo on heel, padded foot bed for comfort, and embossed tread for traction and ease
