As one of the world’s leading sports brands, PUMA has made history as a creator of product designs for outstanding athletes, soccer boots and sports teams — football, running and training, golf, basketball and motorsports. PUMA’s headquarters is in Herzogenaurach, Germany, with more than 14,000 employees in more than 120 countries.
The History of PUMA
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 have been seen wearing Dassler shoes, creating an international breakthrough.
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.
Paving The Way For A Greener Earth
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 understands the importance of creating to level up sports performance and 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.
Turning Intent Into Action
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 soccer boots made an effort to amplify all Black voices within the workplace and donated to support organisations and initiatives for the Black Lives Matter movement.
