Puma Adela X History
Puma has been a leading sportswear brand since its launch in 1948. Rudolf Dassler, the company’s founder, was the brother and former business partner of Adidas founder Adi Dassler. They ran a successful footwear business together, the Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory, for many years before having a final falling out and never speaking to each other again.
During its early years, Puma used a logo consisting of a letter “D” for Dassler, with a square and a beast jumping through it. These days, Puma's shoes and apparel bear the Puma Cat logo, signifying the brand's strength and performance. The brand's footwear also carries the iconic Formstrip on the sides.
Over the years, the brand has evolved from offering sports shoes to including Puma lifestyle sneakers into its line-up. The brand takes inspiration from various sports to create high-performing casual kicks that deliver comfort in addition to vast amounts of style. As a result, Puma has become a favorite in the lifestyle department.
One of the brand’s modern offerings is the Puma Adela X. It is an updated model that follows in the footsteps of the Puma Adela, a timeless sneaker with a smooth leather upper and a unique lace-up system. The Adela X, on the other hand, has a full mesh upper. It also has an innovative elastic lacing with a Velcro strap that keeps the foot in place.
