With the business mission of being “Forever Faster”, PUMA aims to be the Fastest Sports Brand in the World. For over 70 years, PUMA has been developing sports footwear, apparel, mens basketball shoes and accessories for the best athletes. PUMA’s range of sports apparel is designed by incorporating performance and sports inspiration into its products.
From Humble Beginnings to International Breakthrough
In 1919, the Dassler Brothers started their shoe factory in their parents’ home, which grew and evolved into the world-renowned PUMA today. The brand had gained notoriety since Jesse Owens sported Dassler spikes and won four gold medals during the 1936 Olympic Games. More athletes wore PUMA shoes and apparel in subsequent world sporting events, crafting a global reputation for the brand.
Level Up On The Playing Field
PUMA provides a range of stylish sports apparel and equipment for athletes, from comfortable football jerseys to durable golf clubs. PUMA apparel is designed for team sports, track and field, basketball and more — you can also wear PUMA apparel when taking a time-out. Explore clothing for all ages here at PUMA.
Practising Sustainability Through Sports
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.
Innovating 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 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
Over the years, PUMA has partnered with athletes and ambassadors who have raised their voices to support universal equality. In 2018, PUMA mens basketball shoes established #REFORM to honour the 50th anniversary of Tommie Smith’s Silent Gesture as an effort to stand up against the broken U.S. criminal justice system and support organisations that inspire real change.
