Puma is sport. This obsession can be seen in their passion in designing, manufacturing and marketing sports products such as footwear, clothing and accessories. For more than 70 years, Puma is renowned for their ability to create products for the world’s fastest athletes. Their reputation is further enhanced by their ability to infuse performance with sports-inspired lifestyle into their products for sports such as football, running, basketball shoes, golf and motorsports.
The History of PUMA
In 1919, the Dassler Brothers started their shoe factory in their parents’ home, which grew and evolve to be the world-renowed PUMA today. Ever since Jesse Owens sported Dassler spikes and won four gold medals during the 1936 Olympic Games, the brand had gained notoriety. In subsequent world sporting events, more athletes were seen wearing PUMA shoes and apparel, crafting a global reputation for the brand.
Leaders On And Off The Field
By offering a large assortment of well-designed sports gear suitable for both recreational and competitive activity, PUMA has added pleasure to practicality. PUMA offers a variety of comfortable sports apparel and equipment to help you compete on the playing field while enabling you to incorporate sports into your lifestyle with fashionable sportswear that can be worn everywhere, from running shoes for track and field to footwear for golf.
PUMA’s Sustainability Efforts
Similar to how they see athletics, PUMA sees sustainability as a process of identifying and strengthening areas of weakness in order to achieve shared objectives. By improving on social and environmental issues where they have the largest influence, such as Plastic & Oceans, Circularity, Biodiversity, and others, PUMA aims to bring about change via fashion and sports.
PUMA strives to be at the forefront of innovation to meet our athletes’ needs, with adaptive Dynamics as one of the principles that guide PUMA Innovation. This principle is the pursuit of creating products that adapt to human body movement and the environment based on thermoregulation, movement or fit, which led to the creation of PUMA’s self-lacing Fit Intelligence Training Shoe.
Over the years, PUMA basketball shoes have collaborated with athletes and ambassadors who have spoken out in favour of equality for all. By encouraging activities that result in real change such as learning about the problems, and contributing to and supporting groups and initiatives, PUMA leverages their platform to assist in bringing about change.
