PUMA: A History in Brief
This multinational giant began in a German town in Bavaria in 1924 as a shoe factory owned and operated by the Dassler brothers, Adolf and Rudolf. Over the years, their relationship frayed, and by 1948, they split the company, with Adolf forming Adidas and Rudolph eventually naming his company PUMA. Over the years PUMA has attracted the top-rated athletes from every sport to wear their logo and out-perform their competitors, just like PUMA does.
A few sports stars who have worn the PUMA cat are Pelé, Eusébio, Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona, Clyde Frazier, Lothar Matthäus, Hristo Stoitchkov, Rudi Völler, Boris Becker, and Martina Navratilova, among many others. The Jamaican track star, Usain Bolt, considered the fastest man on the planet, is under contract to PUMA. Football clubs Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal FC are sponsored members of the PUMA family, and PUMA endorses the national football teams of Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Ivory Coast, Ghana, and Uruguay. In Track and Field, PUMA sponsors the Jamaican, Cuban, and Barbados Athletic Associations. Most recently, in 2016, PUMA named Virat Kohli as a new Cricket brand ambassador and creative collaborator in India. These are only a few of the many athletes, clubs and associations PUMA has supported.
Almost since its beginning, PUMA has been developing new materials and technologies in their products, and this innovative approach has given them a decided edge in the footwear market. As early as 1952, Rudolf Dassler invented a football boot with screw-in studs. He called it the “Super Atom,” and he followed up this bit of brilliance the next year with the “Brasil.”
Always on the cutting edge of technology, PUMA was the first sports shoe manufacturer to “vulcanize” their rubber soles, making the rubber less sticky and tougher. Their improvements have always been targeted at specific needs for each sport. Golf shoes, for example, were enhanced by stormCELL waterproof materials and SmartQuill traction technology for greater grip. For those who play outdoors in cold climates, there is PWRWARM technology to keep your feet from freezing, while IGNITE™ cushioning enables greater rebound. For kids, PUMA developed INSPECTOR, a growth control system for children’s shoes. And for those involved in motorsports, the year 2000 saw production of fireproof footwear, developed in partnership with Porsche® and Sparco®.
The innovations don’t stop with shoes; even sports bras have been designed to retain heat and provide comfortable support with PWRWARM and PWRSHAPE technology.
- In 2008, PUMA paid tribute to their “King” model of football boot with a special anniversary edition, the King XL, commemorating the Portuguese player Eusébio, who won the 1968 Golden Boot Award as Europe’s leading scorer with 42 goals.
- In 2009, the company released the PUMA King XL Italia, honoring the double World Cup winning coach Vittorio Pozzo.
- The following year, 2010, saw the release of the PUMA King Diego Finale football boot, honoring the 50th birthday of Argentine Diego Maradona. PUMA designed the boot in the colors of La Albiceleste, the Argentine National football team.
- In 2017 PUMA introduced “Money in the Bank” sneakers, a tribute to World Wrestling Entertainment’s (WWE) pay-per-view of the same name.
