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, sport short pants 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 incorporating sports into your lifestyle with stylish sportswear that can be worn anywhere.
PUMA’s Sustainability Efforts
At PUMA, sustainability is a core value of the business. PUMA strives to manage their environmental impact through the 10FOR25 sustainability strategy for a better world by working on ten key areas, from climate and biodiversity to human rights, to reach common goals of making better products that have a less environmental impact on nature.
PUMA understands the importance of creation to level up on sports performance and to keep moving forward, grounded by science. At PUMA Innovation, five ethos drives innovation: be a pain, be connected, be brave, be open, and be ready. To create a final product, designers talk to athletes, look beyond their scope and adopt a human-centred focus in their designs.
Turning Intent Into Action
Living without prejudice should not be open to debate. PUMA is working with nonprofit organisations like The Trevor Project and BAGLY to accelerate equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedom of expression for LGBTQ+ communities. PUMA sport short pants do not tolerate racism, bigotry, or police brutality.
