The Puma logo stands for the third largest sportswear manufacturer in the world behind Nike and Adidas. The Germany-based multinational company’s primary focus is the manufacturing and marketing of a colossal line of products such as footwear, apparel and accessories within the well recognized and highly established sports-lifestyle industry. Puma dispenses its product lines in more than 80 countries, and sponsors more than 30 national football teams worldwide. International soccer stars such as Pelé, Johan Cruijff, and Enzo Francescoli are among those athletes who have worn the Puma logo. In the year 1948, Rudolf Dassler left Adidas, which he owned with his brother Adolph, and created his own shoe company called Puma, along with the hugely famous logo – a leaping Puma, otherwise known as a cougar, panther or mountain lion. Puma is also the main producer of driving shoes and racing suits used by Formula One and NASCAR professionals.
