As one of the world’s leading sports brands, PUMA has made history as a creator of product designs for outstanding athletes and sports teams — be it football, running and training, golf, basketball or motorsports. The designs are incorporated across many apparels including cap, shirt and shoes. PUMA’s headquarters is in Herzogenaurach, Germany, with more than 14,000 employees in more than 120 countries.
The History of PUMA
In 1919, Rudolf and Adolf Dassler founded the company “Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory” in their home in Germany, launching PUMA’s long-standing history of crafting quality sporting goods. The brand gained notoriety in the first few years as athletes who wore Dassler spikes at various international sporting events won gold medals, including the renowned Jesse Owens.
PUMA Sports: Functionality & Leisure
PUMA put the fun in functionality by supplying a wide selection of well-designed sports apparel fit for sports and leisure activities. From running shoes for track and field to footwear for golf, PUMA boasts a range of comfortable sports apparel and equipment to help you perform on the playing field while incorporating sports into your lifestyle with stylish sportswear that can be worn anywhere.
Practicing Sustainability Through Sports
PUMA is committed to making better products, and contribute to a better environment and society. By working with stakeholders on the 10FOR25 sustainability strategy, they aim to do better across various sustainability areas consisting of Fair Income, Products, Health & Safety and more — doing their part to deliver better products and contribute to a better world.
PUMA: Culture of Firsts
PUMA strives to be at the forefront of innovation to meet our athletes’ needs, with adaptive Dynamics as one of the principles that guide PUMA Innovation. This principle is the pursuit of creating products that adapt to human body movement and the environment based on thermoregulation, movement or fit, which led to PUMA’s self-lacing Fit Intelligence Training Shoe.
Not only known for apparels such as cap, tees and shoes, PUMA is also involved in supporting organisations and movements. Over the years, PUMA has partnered with athletes and ambassadors who have raised their voices to support universal equality. In 2018, PUMA established #REFORM to honour the 50th anniversary of Tommie Smith’s Silent Gesture as an effort to stand up against the broken U.S. criminal justice system and support organisations that inspire real change.
