Puma’s golf shoes were a big part of the company’s comeback strategy in the early 1990s, when the company was struggling to compete with Nike’s ubiquitous sneakers.
The company went from selling its Puma line of shoes to making them available at select retailers like Nordstrom and Wal-Mart.
In 1995, the company introduced the Puma PX4, a pair of golf shoes that looked exactly like the Pumas famous Puma shoes, only in Puma fashion.
The shoes were the start of a trend that saw Pumases iconic shoes become so popular that they became the first-ever footwear brand to earn a cult following.
The Puma brand took off, and Puma started a comeback in the late 1990s.
The company’s popularity was so great that by 2000, it was producing a new line of golf footwear every six weeks.
The Puma 3-4, for example, was released in 2001.
By the mid 2000s, Pumaseas sales had hit record highs, and it had expanded to include a range of other Puma footwear, including shoes for women, children and seniors.
But while the company has had plenty of success in the past decade, its sales have stagnated in recent years.
“In the past five years, the Punex brand has lost about 30 percent of its market share,” says Nikhil Gupta, the founder and CEO of online retailer GoShop.com.
Gupta says that as the company focuses on its core business, its business is losing market share to other footwear companies.
In a statement to Forbes, Puma said that it is committed to its customers, and believes that the best way to grow our business is to be focused on delivering the highest quality products and services.
“We are constantly working to evolve our footwear business and are always looking to improve our product offerings and services,” the statement said.
We’re going to continue to invest in the brand, Patea CEO Gopal Prakash said in an interview with Forbes.
“I think our customer is our customers.
We’re not going to be content with that.”
