PUMA: Culture of Firsts
PUMA strives to be on the forefront of innovation to meet our athletes’ needs, with adaptive Dynamics as one of the principles that guides 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 the creation of PUMA’s self-lacing Fit Intelligence Training Shoe.
PUMA Against Social Injustices
Over the years, PUMA has partnered with athletes and ambassadors who have raised their voices to support universal equality. In 2018, PUMA established #REFORM to honor the 50th anniversary of Tommie Smith’s Silent Gesture as an effort to stand up against the broken U.S. criminal justice system, and support organisations who inspire real change.
