Puma is the product of a sibling-rivalry moment between brothers Rudolf and Adolf Dassler, who in 1948 resolved an argument by splitting their Bavaria-based shoe factory into two new companies: Puma, founded by Rudolf, and Adidas, established by Adolf. In addition to creating iconic suede basketball shoes, Puma has outfitted elite athletes such as soccer legend Pelé and was the first footwear company to use vulcanized rubber and foam-free midsoles. These days the globally recognized lifestyle megabrand produces sneakers and stylish sweats for men, women, and children as well as underwear, accessories, sports league uniforms, golf gear, chic outerwear, and watches. Puma’s widely beloved collection of athletic shoes for men, women, and kids includes classic custom black suede sneakers, red polka-dot high-tops, versatile running shoes, and countless other styles — all emblazoned with Puma’s signature leaping cat logo. Sporty, chic and functional, Puma shoes mold to the shape of your feet and leave you feeling light as a feather. You'll be one cool cat with kicks like these.
