Fuelled by sibling rivalry, Puma was founded by Rudolf Dassler – the brother of Adidas creator Adolf Dassler – and has become recognised worldwide for its iconic ‘jumping cat’ logo and its pioneering selection of athletic apparel and footwear. Having raised the bar with athletic running gear and their spiked running shoes during the 1936 Olympic games, Puma has continued to blaze a trail from the track to the catwalk and the stadium to the street with the help of the iconic 'formstripe' design.
Today, Puma has established itself as an athletic force, developing a range of contemporary sports sneakers and clothing as well as actively collaborating with a range of fashion labels and musicians – from Jil Sander, BAPE and Stampd to Rihanna, The Weeknd and Big Sean.
Some of Puma’s latest releases, including the XT2+ model, Future Rider Ride On trainers and and the Puma Smash V2 trainers, continue to keep Puma one step ahead in the sneaker game, joining all-time classics such as the Puma Suede and the Puma Blaze of Glory. All of their low-tops, high-tops and primeknit sneaker designs are crafted with great care, so you should take equally good care when it comes to finding the most comfortable sneakers for you. Check out the details of our Puma sizing guide below to find out how.
How do Puma sneakers fit?
- Puma sneakers generally fit true to size, which makes the whole process relatively simple.
- Buying your pair of Puma sneakers is made even easier if you know the precise measurement of your feet. Firstly, don’t measure your feet in the morning; feet often swell during the day due to heat and activity. For the best fit, measure your feet at the end of the day. Place your foot on the floor with your heel against the wall and place a ruler parallel to the inside of your foot. Then place an object with a straight edge across the top of your foot, the edge touching the tip of your longest toe. Take the length measurement.
- If you’re in between two sizes, we recommend you go for a size up, rather than the size down. So if you usually wear a 42 go up half a size and buy a 42.5.
- Puma uses European sizing, so use the chart below to convert to EU sizing from US and UK sizes.
