More than just being quick, PUMA aims to achieve one thing: to be the Fastest Sports Brand in the World. As a world-renowned sports brand, PUMA has been creating, developing and designing quality sports apparel, basketball shorts and footwear for all kinds of sports, from football to motorsport and golf, for more than seven decades.
The Brand Story of PUMA
Founded by brothers Rudolf and Adolf Dassler in 1919, PUMA originates from humble beginnings as a small factory in Germany. In 1936, Jesse Owens won four gold medals at the Olympic Games in Berlin, all while sporting Dassler spikes. Since then, more world-class athletes are seen wearing Dassler shoes, creating an international breakthrough.
Level Up On The Playing Field
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.
Practising Sustainability Through Sports
PUMA chooses to push for change and pave the way with fashion and sportswear. As a business that incorporates sustainability into its operations, PUMA’s 10FOR25 sustainability strategy supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals focusing on ten key sustainability areas by working closely with stakeholders.
Better Innovations 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 Supports Gender Equality
Racial and social imbalances have skewed criminal justice systems — this is why PUMA supports organisations like REFORM Alliance and the ACLU to advocate for reforms to a broken system. PUMA basketball shorts takes a firm stance against societal injustice, discrimination and inequality and aims to support good causes for a better society.
