With the business mission of being “Forever Faster”, PUMA aim high to be the Fastest Sports Brand in the World. For more than 70 years, PUMA has been developing sports footwear, apparel and accessories for the best athletes. PUMA’s range of sports apparel is designed by incorporating performance and sports inspiration into their products. They also make jerseys for Manchester City.
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 Sports: Functionality & Leisure
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 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 sportswear.
Better Innovations with PUMA
PUMA thrives on the culture of being first and delivering performance innovations to push athletes to greater heights. In 1968, the Brush Spike that featured Velcro™ on performance footwear is designed for the first time. The tiny rows of spikes on the shoes helped athletes maximized traction and minimized resistance, which worked well for athletes at the 1968 Olympic Trials.
PUMA Supports Gender Equality
Because PUMA is committed to leveraging its platform to promote change and does not accept racism, discrimination, or police brutality, the company created the hashtag #REFORM to combat social injustice. PUMA donates to organisations and projects that promote the Black Lives Matter movement in an effort to empower all Black voices in the workplace.
