With the business mission of being “Forever Faster”, PUMA aims to be the Fastest Sports Brand in the World. For over 70 years, PUMA has been developing sports footwear, apparel and accessories such as women’s bag 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 originates 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 are seen wearing Dassler shoes, creating an international breakthrough.
Level Up On The Playing Field
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 letting you incorporate sports into your lifestyle with stylish sportswear that can be worn anywhere.
PUMA’s Business Philosophy
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.
PUMA: Culture of Firsts
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
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 honour the 50th anniversary of Tommie Smith’s Silent Gesture as an effort to stand up against the broken U.S. criminal justice system. Support organisations that inspire real change.
