More than just being quick, PUMA aims to achieve one thing: to be the Fastest Sports Brand in the World. As a world-renowned sports brand, PUMA has been creating, developing, running shorts and designing quality sports apparel and footwear for all kinds of sports, from football to motorsport and golf, for over seven decades.
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 Sports: Functionality & Leisure
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 is committed to making better products and contributing to a better environment and society. By working with stakeholders on the 10FOR25 sustainability strategy, they aim to do better across various sustainability areas, including Fair Income, Products, Health & Safety, and more — doing their part to deliver better products and contribute to a better world.
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 was designed for the first time. The tiny rows of spikes on the shoes helped athletes maximise traction and minimised resistance, which worked well for athletes at the 1968 Olympic Trials.
PUMA Against Social Injustices
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 running shorts do not tolerate racism, bigotry, or police brutality.
