Puma Carina History

Puma has been considered one of the most successful brands in the footwear industry. It was formed in the 40s when Rudi Dassler left Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory after he feuded with his brother, Adi Dassler, the founder of Adidas. The rivalry has been consistent between the two brands, which persisted for several years. 

Puma experienced its early success with the Puma Atom silhouette. This iteration was the first soccer cleat of the brand and was worn by Germany's national team during the 1950 Olympics. Since then, Pum has been unstoppable in achieving its mainstream popularity. Several athletes and celebrities showed value for Puma and worn several Jumping Cat's footwear on various occasions. 

In 1983, Puma launched tennis footwear made for Argentinian world-class tennis player Guillermo Vilas. Because of its comfort and style, Puma reworked this model into casual footwear and renamed it into Puma California because of its popularity in the streets of California. The Puma California quickly made its way to the history of sneaker world as it featured a timeless look perfect for various generations. 

In 2019, Puma revamped the upper of California and added an elevated sole to it. This style conceived the Puma Carina trainers, which are exclusively offered in women`s sizing. This model is made of rich suede upper, creating a plush look while the stacked rubber sole enhances this pair's eye-catching appeal.
