As one of the world’s leading sports brands, PUMA has made history as a creator of product designs for outstanding athletes and sports teams — football, running shoes for women and training, golf, basketball and motorsports. PUMA’s headquarters is in Herzogenaurach, Germany, with more than 14,000 employees in more than 120 countries.
From Humble Beginnings to International Breakthrough
In Germany, PUMA was founded in 1919 as the “Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik” (Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory). 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 Apparel and Equipment
PUMA put the fun in functionality by supplying a wide selection of well-designed sports apparel 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 Sustainability Efforts
PUMA is committed to making better products and contributing to a better environment and society. By working with stakeholders on the 10FOR25 sustainability strategy, they aim to do better across various sustainability areas, including Fair Income, Products, Health & Safety, and more — doing their part to deliver better products and contribute to a better world.
Better Innovations with PUMA
PUMA understands the importance of creating to level up on sports performance and keep moving forward, grounded by science. At PUMA Innovation, there is five ethos that 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 Against Social Injustices
PUMA does not tolerate racism, bigotry, or police brutality and is committed to using its platform to push for change — this is why PUMA, running shoes for women, established #REFORM to stand up against social injustice. PUMA makes an effort to amplify all Black voices within the workplace and made donations to support organisations and initiatives for the Black Lives Matter movement.
