A bit of history… This German sportswear company was established in 1948 by Rudolf Dassler, after his previous partnership with his brother, Adolf, broke down. With the split, two separate companies were formed, Adidas and Puma. In its first year, Puma released its first football boot, the Atom, further creating the Super Atom in 1952, the first boot with screw in studs. With a growing presence of the jumping cat logo, designed by cartoonist Lutz Backes, one of Puma’s defining moments was the sponsorship of Tommie Smith and John Carlos, the African American Athletes that made the 1968 Olympic Black Power Salute. By the 90s, it wasn’t just Olympians wearing Puma, but consumers worldwide wore their tracksuits as fashion statements
Puma tracksuits and sneakers were a real must-have in 90s fashion, worn by singers, including Gwen Stefani and Britney Spears, and seen to collaborate with ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ to create a vibrant tribute line to the 90s show. Endorsed further by athletes, such as Serena Williams, in 1998, who was famous for sporting eccentric tennis apparel, Puma was promoted on and off the sport pitches, making it a hugely diverse brand.
