Puma is sport. This obsession can be seen by their passion in designing, manufacturing and marketing sports products such as footwear, clothing and accessories. For more than 70 years, Puma is renowned for their ability to create products for the world’s fastest athletes. Their reputation is further enhanced by their ability to infuse performance with sports-inspired lifestyle into their products for sports such as football jerseys, running, basketball, golf and motorsports.
Birth of a Giant
PUMA’s long-standing tradition of producing high-quality athletic goods started with the Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory, established by Rudolf and Adolf Dassler in their German home in 1919. 28 years later, the brothers fell out and went separate ways. Rudolf Dassler relocated to a another building that belonged to the family and established PUMA. He converted this storage building into a factory with the aid of 14 workers. And the rest was history.
From team sports, like football and rugby, to individual sports, PUMA supplies athletes with the best equipment on the fields, tracks and courses. Off the field, PUMA’s belief that sports is a lifestyle is seen in their stylish sports apparel designs that can be worn anywhere, anytime.
Practicing Sustainability Through Sports
PUMA choose to push for change and pave the way with fashion and sportswear. As a business that incorporates sustainability into their operations, PUMA’s 10FOR25 sustainability strategy supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals focusing on 10 key sustainability areas by working closely with stakeholders.
Better Innovations with PUMA
PUMA strives to be on the forefront of innovation to meet our athletes’ needs, with adaptive Dynamics as one of the principles that guides 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 the creation of PUMA’s self-lacing Fit Intelligence Training Shoe.
PUMA Supports Gender Equality
Living without discrimination should not be open to debate. That’s why PUMA is working with nonprofits organisations like The Trevor Project and BAGLY to accelerate equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedom of expression for LGBTQ+ communities. PUMA do not tolerate racism, bigotry, or police brutality.
