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, football shorts and accessories for the best athletes. PUMA’s range of sports apparel is designed by incorporating performance and sports inspiration into its products.
The Brand Story of PUMA
In 1919, Rudolf and Adolf Dassler founded the company “Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory” in their home in Germany, launching PUMA’s long-standing history of crafting quality sporting goods. In the first few years, the brand gained notoriety as athletes who wore Dassler spikes at various international sporting events won gold medals, including the renowned Jesse Owens.
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 letting you incorporate sports into your lifestyle with stylish sportswear that can be worn anywhere.
Practising Sustainability Through Sports
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.
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.
Turning Intent Into Action
Living without prejudice should not be open to debate. That’s why 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 football shorts do not tolerate racism, bigotry, or police brutality.
