More than just being quick, PUMA aims to achieve one thing: to be the Fastest Sports Brand in the World. As a world-renowned sports brand, PUMA has been creating, developing and designing quality sports apparel, track shoes and footwear for all kinds of sports, from football to motorsport and golf, for more than seven decades.
From Humble Beginnings to International Breakthrough
PUMA was founded in 1919 as the “Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik” (Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory) in Germany. The brand pivoted its international breakthrough during Amsterdam’s 1928 Olympic Summer Games, where most German athletes wear Dassler spikes. In 1948 “PUMA” was officially registered at the German Patent and Trademark Office.
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.
PUMA’s Sustainability Efforts
PUMA chooses to push for change and pave the way with fashion and sportswear. As a business that incorporates sustainability into its operations, PUMA’s 10FOR25 sustainability strategy supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals focusing on ten key sustainability areas by working closely with stakeholders.
Innovating with PUMA
PUMA understands the importance of creation to level up on sports performance and to keep moving forward, grounded by science. At PUMA Innovation, five ethos drives innovation: be a pain, be connected, be brave, be open, and be ready. To create a final product, designers talk to athletes, look beyond their scope and adopt a human-centred focus in their designs.
PUMA does not tolerate racism, bigotry, or police brutality and is committed to using its platform to push for change — this is why PUMA established #REFORM to stand up against social injustice. PUMA track shoes make an effort to amplify all Black voices within the workplace and made donations to support organisations and initiatives for the Black Lives Matter movement.
