The History of PUMA
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. In the first few years, the brand gained notoriety as athletes who wore Dassler spikes at various international sporting events won gold medals, including the renowned Jesse Owens.

PUMA: Culture of Firsts
PUMA Sandals understands the importance of creation to level up on sports performance and to keep moving forward, grounded by science. At PUMA Innovation, there is five ethos that drives innovation: be a pain, be connected, be brave, be open, be ready. To create a final product, designers talk to athletes, look beyond their scope and adopt a human-centred focus in their designs.
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 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.
