Puma was founded in the year 1948. The company has been operational for almost 71 years now. The founder of the company was Rudolf Dassler. His brother, Adolf Dassler was responsible for establishing the Adidas brand. During the earlier days of the company’s operations, both the companies were into fierce competition. In the year of the company’s founding, the first football match after WWII was organised, in which several players of the West Germany National Team wore boots made by Puma, including the first goal scorer of the post-war regime. In the year 1952, the company had designed footwear with screw-in spikes. The same year, Josy Barthel won Puma the first Olympic Gold Medal, at the 1952 Summer Olympics.
