PUMA doesn’t simply want to be fast; it wants to be the fastest sports brand in the world. As a well-known sports brand, PUMA has spent more than seven decades developing and manufacturing high-quality black sports shoes and sportswear for various sports, including football, motorsport, and golf.
Birth of a Giant
In Germany, the “Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik” (Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory) was established in 1919. The majority of German athletes wore Dassler spikes during the 1928 Olympic Summer Games in Amsterdam, which marked the brand’s global breakthrough. “PUMA” was formally filed with the German Patent and Trademark Office in 1948.
PUMA apparel are designed for both functionality and leisure — they are suitable for all kinds of sports from football to running. You can also style it as leisure wear and go about your day in comfortable sports apparel, because sport is lifestyle. Discover a variety of sports wear for all ages at PUMA.
Using Sports to Promote Sustainability
Sustainability is a fundamental business value for PUMA. Through the 10FOR25 sustainability strategy for a better world, PUMA works to manage its environmental impact by focusing on 10 key areas, from climate change and biodiversity to human rights, in an effort to achieve shared objectives of producing better products with fewer negative environmental effects.
PUMA understands the importance of creation to level up on sport performance and to keep moving forward, grounded by science. At PUMA Innovation there are five ethos that drive innovation: be a pain, be connected, be brave, be open, be ready. To create a final product, designers talk to athletes, look beyond their scope and adopt a human-centered focus in their designs.
PUMA Against Social Injustices
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 honor the 50th anniversary of Tommie Smith’s Silent Gesture as an effort to stand up against the broken U.S. criminal justice system, and support organisations who inspire real change.
