Adidas And Puma End 60-Year Feud

Adidas
The German sportswear companies Puma and Adidas are to end a feud started 60 years ago by their founding brothers. Adi Dassler (who founded Adidas) and Rudolf Dassler (who founded Ruda, later changed to Puma) started making sports shoes together in their mother’s wash-room in the 1920s.

They fell out during World War II, probably over political differences, and founded firms on either side of a river in southern Germany. On Monday, September 21, employees of both companies will shake hands and then play a football match.
