Rudolf Dassler has been in this industry long before the Puma brand was born in 1948. It all started in 1924 when they, together with his younger brother, Adolf Dassler, opened the Gebruder Dassler Shuhfabrik in Herzogenaurach, Bavaria, Germany. They became well-known for their spiked shoes. 

However, it was short-lived, and the two went separate ways. When the two split, Rudolf Dassler changed his company name to "Sportschuhfabrik Rudolf Dassler (RUDA)". Not long after, it became known as what we call it today, Puma and two brothers became rivals.

Today, Puma is among the world's leading sportswear brands, designing and manufacturing apparel, footwear, and accessories.
