PUMA: Performance and Sport-inspired Lifestyle Products
Puma is sport. This obsession can be seen by their passion in designing, manufacturing and marketing sports products such as footwear, clothing and accessories. For more than 70 years, Puma is renowned for their ability to create products for the world’s fastest athletes. Their reputation is further enhanced by their ability to infuse performance with sports-inspired lifestyle into their products for sports such as football, running, basketball, golf and motorsports. They also sell basketball shorts for men.
The History of PUMA
PUMA’s long-standing tradition of producing high-quality athletic goods started with the Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory, established by Rudolf and Adolf Dassler in their German home in 1919. 28 years later, the brothers fell out and went separate ways. Rudolf Dassler relocated to a another building that belonged to the family and established PUMA. He converted this storage building into a factory with the aid of 14 workers. And the rest was history.

PUMA’s Sustainability Efforts
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.
Forever Faster, Always First
PUMA aims to always bring better and unique innovations to sports for game changing athletes. Back in 1984, the RS Computer Shoe was created in the PUMA Running Studio where the team leveraged computer technology to create better running shoes. Today, PUMA continues experimenting with digital technology to bring out the best in athletes.
Reform, Equality for All
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.
