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 — be it football, running and training, golf, basketball or motorsports. PUMA’s headquarters is in Herzogenaurach, Germany, with more than 14,000 employees in more than 120 countries.
The History of PUMA
In 1919, the Dassler Brothers started their shoe Sport Attire factory in their parents’ home, which grew and evolved into the world-renowned PUMA today. Ever since Jesse Owens sported Dassler spikes and won four gold medals during the 1936 Olympic Games, the brand had gained notoriety. More athletes were seen wearing PUMA shoes and apparel in subsequent world sporting events, crafting a global reputation for the brand.
Today, the playing field is more diverse than ever. Be it on the running tracks, golf courses or the football field. PUMA supplies athletes with the right equipment to perform, from golf clubs to running shoes. Even when you are not doing sports, PUMA sports apparel are versatile wear that you can style in various ways.
Paving The Way For A Greener Earth
At PUMA, sustainability is a core value of the business. PUMA strives to manage their environmental impact through the 10FOR25 sustainability strategy for a better world by working on ten key areas, from climate and biodiversity to human rights, to reach common goals of making better products that have a less environmental impact on nature.
Better Innovations with PUMA
PUMA Sport Attire 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
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 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.
