Puma’s humble beginning began in 1948 when Rudolf and Adolf Dassler, who together founded the Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory, parted ways over an argument. Rudolf went on to start a new company, which he named Puma. The company’s first shoe was a soccer cleat called the Atom. It was launched successfully with several athletes who were convinced by its performance.  

For 7 decades, Puma has been successfully creating successful shoes and gears for the world’s fastest athletes. In 1968, the company incorporated the now-famous Puma Cat logo to their sneakers. 

The company has had several innovations added to their shoe lineups. They have also released shoes that are in collaboration with other famous brands and personalities. Today, Puma not only manufactures shoes for men, but they also have a long list of shoes for women. One such shoe is the Puma Vikky Ribbon Patent under the Puma Vikky collection.

With its wide satin bow closure, it will surely add a touch of glam to an otherwise boring outfit. Likewise, the Puma Vikky Ribbon Patent is inspired by women’s basketball. Therefore, it is not only suitable for dressing up, but for being active as well.
