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, running, basketball, golf and motorsports, such as BMW shoes.
From Humble Beginnings to International Breakthrough
In Germany, the “Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik” (Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory) was established in 1919. The majority of German athletes wore Dassler spikes during the 1928 Olympic Summer Games in Amsterdam, which marked the brand’s global breakthrough. “PUMA” was formally filed with the German Patent and Trademark Office in 1948.
By offering a large assortment of well-designed sports gear suitable for both recreational and competitive activity, PUMA has added pleasure to practicality. PUMA offers a variety of comfortable sports apparel and equipment to help you compete on the playing field while enabling you incorporate sports into your lifestyle with fashionable sportswear that can be worn everywhere, from running shoes for track and field to footwear for golf.
Practicing Sustainability Through Sports
PUMA is dedicated to producing better goods and making a positive impact on both the environment and society. They strive to improve in a number of sustainability categories, including Fair Income, Products, Health & Safety, and more, by collaborating with stakeholders on the 10FOR25 sustainability plan. In this way, they can produce better products and contribute to a better society.
PUMA thrives on the culture of being first and delivering performance innovations to push athletes to greater heights. In 1968, the Brush Spike that featured Velcro™ on performance footwear is designed for the first time. The tiny rows of spikes on the shoes helped athletes maximized traction and minimized resistance, which worked well for athletes at the 1968 Olympic Trials.
PUMA Supports Gender Equality
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 honor 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 who inspire real change.
