PUMA Astro Cup Leather History

PUMA was launched in 1948 by Rudolf Dassler in Herzogenaurach, Germany. He was the brother of Adidas founder Adi Dassler, with whom he had a bitter rivalry that lasted throughout both of their lives. Initially named Ruda, the company was renamed into PUMA after the large American wild cat.

The company’s earliest logo was a square and an animal jumping through the letter “D” for Dassler. Today, PUMA’s Leaping Cat logo is highly recognizable around the world, signifying quality and performance.
