With the business mission of being “Forever Faster”, PUMA aims high to be the Fastest Sports Brand in the World. For over 70 years, PUMA has been developing sports footwear, apparel and accessories such as tote bags for the best athletes. PUMA’s range of sports apparel is designed by incorporating performance and sports inspiration into their products.
From Humble Beginnings to International Breakthrough
Founded by brothers Rudolf and Adolf Dassler in 1919, PUMA originated from humble beginnings 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 have been seen wearing Dassler shoes, creating an international breakthrough.
PUMA Sports Apparel and Equipment
PUMA apparels are designed for both functionality and leisure — they are suitable for all kinds of sports, from football to running. You can also style it as leisurewear and go about your day in comfortable sports apparel because sport is a lifestyle. Discover a variety of sportswear for all ages at PUMA.
PUMA’s Business Philosophy
PUMA views sustainability in the same way as they consider sports — it’s about figuring out and improving on weaknesses to reach common goals. PUMA strives to create change through fashion and sportswear by improving social and environmental areas where they have the most significant impact, including Plastic & Oceans, Circularity, Biodiversity and more.
Better Innovations with PUMA
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 was designed for the first time. The tiny rows of spikes on the shoes helped athletes maximise traction and minimised resistance, which worked well for athletes at the 1968 Olympic Trials.
PUMA Supports Gender Equality
Living without prejudice should not be open to debate. PUMA is working with nonprofit 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.
