As one of the world’s leading sports brands, PUMA has made history as a creator of product designs for outstanding athletes, basketball shoes 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, 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.
Level Up On The Playing Field
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 is a 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.
PUMA: Culture of Firsts
PUMA understands the importance of creation to level up on sports performance and to keep moving forward, grounded by science. At PUMA Innovation, there is five ethos that 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.
Racial and social imbalances have led to skewed criminal justice systems — this is why PUMA supports organisations like REFORM Alliance and the ACLU to advocate for reforms to a broken system. PUMA basketball shoes takes a firm stance against any form of societal injustice, discrimination and inequality and aims to support good causes for a better society.
