Herzogenaurach, Germany, is home to PUMA’s headquarters, and more than 14,000 people work there from more than 120 different nations. PUMA also produces leisure footwear such as sandals.
In 1919, the Dassler Brothers started their shoe factory in their parents’ home, which grew and evolve to be the world-renowed PUMA today. Ever since Jesse Owens sported Dassler spikes and won four gold medals during the 1936 Olympic Games, the brand had gained notoriety. In subsequent world sporting events, more athletes were seen wearing PUMA shoes and apparel, crafting a global reputation for the brand.

Innovating 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 is designed for the first time. The tiny rows of spikes on the shoes helped athletes maximized traction and minimized resistance, which worked well for athletes at the 1968 Olympic Trials.
Reform, Equality for All
Living without discrimination should not be open to debate. That’s why PUMA is working with nonprofits organisations like The Trevor Project and BAGLY to accelerate equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedom of expression for LGBTQ+ communities.
