As one of the world’s leading sports brands, PUMA has made history as a creator of product designs for outstanding athletes, mens basketball shoes and sports teams — football, 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.
Today, the playing field is more diverse than ever. Be it on the running tracks, golf courses or the football field. PUMA supplies athletes with the right equipment to perform, from golf clubs to running shoes. Even when not doing sports, PUMA sports apparel is a versatile wear that you can style in various ways.
PUMA’s Sustainability Efforts
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.
Better Innovations 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 creating products that adapt to human body movement and the environment based on thermoregulation, activity or fit, which led to the creation of PUMA’s self-lacing Fit Intelligence Training Shoe.
PUMA Supports Gender Equality
Racial and social imbalances have led to 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 mens basketball shoes take a firm stance against societal injustice, discrimination and inequality and aim to support good causes for a better society.
