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 track shorts 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 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. The brand gained notoriety in the first few years as athletes who wore Dassler spikes at various international sporting events won gold medals, including the renowned Jesse Owens.
PUMA apparel is designed for both functionality and leisure — it is suitable for all sports, from football to running. You can also style it as leisurewear and go about your day in comfortable sports apparel because sport is a lifestyle. Discover a variety of sportswear for all ages at PUMA.
PUMA’s Sustainability Efforts
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: Culture of Firsts
PUMA understands the importance of creating to level up on 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
Living without prejudice should not be open to debate. PUMA works with nonprofit organisations like The Trevor Project and BAGLY to accelerate equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedom of expression for LGBTQ+ communities. PUMA track shorts do not tolerate racism, bigotry, or police brutality.
