As one of the world’s leading sports brands, PUMA has made history as a creator of product designs for outstanding athletes and sports teams — football, mens running and training, golf, basketball and motorsports. PUMA’s headquarters is in Herzogenaurach, Germany, with more than 14,000 employees in more than 120 countries.
In Germany, PUMA was founded in 1919 as the “Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik” (Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory). The brand pivoted its international breakthrough during Amsterdam’s 1928 Olympic Summer Games, where most German athletes wear Dassler spikes. In 1948 “PUMA” was officially registered at the German Patent and Trademark Office.

PUMA’s Business Philosophy
PUMA views sustainability in the same way they consider sports — it’s about figuring out and improving 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, activity or fit, which led to PUMA’s self-lacing Fit Intelligence Training Shoe.
Turning Intent Into Action
Living without prejudice should not be open to debate. PUMA mens running works with nonprofit organisations like The Trevor Project and BAGLY to accelerate equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedom of expression for LGBTQ+ communities. PUMA do not tolerate racism, bigotry, or police brutality.
