Puma Pacer Next Cage ST2 History
Puma’s roots could be traced all the way back in 1924 via the Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik (or Dassler Brother Shoe Factor in English.) This company was founded by Puma’s founder Rudolf Dassler and his brother and Adidas owner Adolf “Adi” Dassler. They were the brains behind the winning spike-soled shoe of American track star Jesse Owen, which he wore in the Summer Olympics of 1936.
However, trouble was brewing between the brother and had ultimately led them to part ways and establish their own footwear brands. Rudolf created Puma in 1948 and is recognized today as one of the most successful sports brands in the world.
The Jumping Cat brand now houses countless merchandise including apparel, casual footwear, bags, and accessories. One of its casual sneaker designs is the Puma Pacer Next Cage ST2, a women’s exclusive model that displays a modern silhouette bathed in fun colorways. Check it out in Dusty Coral/White, Peach Bud/Puma Silver, Silver Gray/Metal/Lavender, Black/Whisper White, and Puma Black.
