PUMA Sign WNBA Star Breanna Stewart to Long-Term Sneaker Deal
PUMA have just added another strong signing to their female ambassador contingency, with WNBA star Breanna Stewart joining the Big Cat. ‘Stewie’ will become a long-term ambassador for the brand, in a deal that includes the development of a signature sneaker – a significant outcome for women in the footwear industry.
‘I am proud to join the PUMA family,’ said Breanna Stewart. ‘The genuine investment PUMA has shown to collaborate with and activate around women, including the commitment to a signature performance shoe, is something that I hope serves to raise the expectations and standards of the generations of basketball players who follow me.’
Adam Petrick, Global Director of Brand and Marketing for PUMA, said of the signing: ‘[Stewart] embodies what it means to be a PUMA athlete with her on-court determination to her off-court activism for equality in all forms. We are excited to work together in many ways to… also help grow the sport for women everywhere.’
Stewart’s palmares include being the only player of any gender to win four consecutive NCAA Championships, being the first overall pick in the 2016 WNBA Draft, winning a gold medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics, and notching a second Championship and Finals MVP for the 2019-2020 WNBA season.,
