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 — be it football, running and gym training shoes, golf, basketball or motorsports. PUMA’s headquarters is in Herzogenaurach, Germany, with more than 14,000 employees in more than 120 countries.
From Humble Beginnings to International Breakthrough
PUMA was founded in 1919 as the “Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik” (Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory) in Germany. 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 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.
Innovating with PUMA
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, movement or fit, which led to PUMA’s self-lacing Fit Intelligence Training Shoe.
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 gym training shoes takes a firm stance against societal injustice, discrimination and inequality and aims to support good causes for a better society.
