Puma Speeder Mesh History

Puma is a brand that has a long, famous history, dating back to the late 1940s. Parting ways with his brother, Adi Dassler, after their irreconcilable conflict following World War II, Rudolf “Rudi” Dassler went on his own to launch his shoe company. He named it Puma. The brand immediately began to make an impact on sports such as football, track and field, and running.

On their first year, Puma released their first shoe, the Atom. In 1950, West Germany’s first postwar goal was scored by a player wearing a pair of Atoms, which won them the match against Switzerland. Then on, Puma rose to an elite level when it comes to sportswear.

In 1952, the Super Atom was released. It was the first football boot in the world to have screw-in studs. It was also the first to bear Puma’s first logo: the three Dassler stripes flowing as one, with the animal puma leaping into the hole of the letter D. And thus began Puma’s long-lasting heritage.

Fast-forward into the 1970s fitness boom, Puma released a variety of iconic running shoes, like the Easy Rider, the Cyclone, the Jogger, and also the Speeder Mesh. These silhouettes smoothly evolved into the lifestyle category, creating running-inspired sneakers.

Puma recently dropped a reissue of the famous Speeder Mesh, all packed with its vintage 1970s silhouette, clean mesh-suede upper pattern, and lightweight build. Almost over fifty years since its initial release, the Puma Speeder Mesh still looks fresh as ever.
