The Brand Story of PUMA
Founded by brothers Rudolf and Adolf Dassler in 1919, PUMA originates from humble beginings as a small factory in Germany. In 1936, Jesse Owens won four gold medals at the Olympic Games in Berlin, all while sporting Dassler spikes. Since then, more world class athletes are seen wearing Dassler shoes, creating an international breakthrough.

PUMA’s Business Philosophy
As a sports company, PUMA recognises the importance of sustainability in sports. They recognise shortcomings and strengthens them towards the goal of sustainability. PUMA believes in integrating sustainability into every aspect of the manufacturing processes for all products – from sourcing raw materials to the manufacturing stage, both socially and environmentally.
PUMA: Culture of Firsts
PUMA strives to be on the forefront of innovation to meet our athletes’ needs, with adaptive Dynamics as one of the principles that guides 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.
Reform, Equality for All
Criminal justice systems are skewed as a result of racial and social inequities; as a result, PUMA supports groups like the ACLU and REFORM Alliance who fight for systemic changes. PUMA is firmly opposed to all types of social injustice, prejudice, and inequality and works to promote worthwhile activities that contribute to a more just society.
