PUMA: World-Leading Sports Brand
With the business mission of being “Forever Faster”, PUMA aims high to be the Fastest Sports Brand in the World. For over 70 years, PUMA has been developing sports footwear, apparel, Mercedes AMG F1 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. Ever since Jesse Owens sported Dassler spikes and won four gold medals during the 1936 Olympic Games, the brand had gained notoriety. More athletes were seen wearing PUMA shoes and apparel in subsequent world sporting events, crafting a global reputation for the brand.
PUMA put the fun in functionality by supplying a wide selection of well-designed sports apparel fit for sports and leisure activities. From running shoes for track and field to footwear for golf, PUMA boasts a range of comfortable sports apparel and equipment to help you perform on the playing field while letting you incorporate sports into your lifestyle with stylish sportswear that can be worn anywhere.
PUMA’s Sustainability Efforts
PUMA views sustainability in the same way as they consider sports — it’s about figuring out and improving on weaknesses to reach common goals. PUMA strives to create change through fashion and sportswear by improving social and environmental areas where they have the most significant impact, including Plastic & Oceans, Circularity, Biodiversity and more.
PUMA strives to be at the forefront of innovation to meet our athletes’ needs, with adaptive Dynamics as one of the principles that guide 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.
PUMA Against Social Injustices
PUMA does not tolerate racism, bigotry, or police brutality and is committed to using its platform to push for change — this is why PUMA established #REFORM Mercedes AMG F1 to stand up against social injustice. PUMA makes an effort to amplify all Black voices within the workplace and made donations to support organisations and initiatives for the Black Lives Matter movement.
