PUMA doesn’t simply want to be fast; it wants to be the fastest sports brand in the world. As a well-known sports brand, PUMA has spent more than seven decades developing and manufacturing high-quality sportswear and footwear for various sports, such as football jerseys.
The History of PUMA
Founded by brothers Rudolf and Adolf Dassler in 1919, PUMA originates from humble beginings as a small factory in Germany. In 1936, Jesse Owens won four gold medals at the Olympic Games in Berlin, all while sporting Dassler spikes. Since then, more world class athletes are seen wearing Dassler shoes, creating an international breakthrough.
The playing field is more varied than ever today. whether it be on the football field, golf course, or running track. PUMA provides athletes with the equipment they need to succeed, from running shoes to golf clubs. PUMA sportswear is versatile clothing that you may style in many different ways, even when you are not participating in sports.
PUMA’s Business Philosophy
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.
PUMA: Culture of Firsts
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 Against Social Injustices
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.
