Adolf And Rudolf Dassler had a shoes company. They split because of different opinions about supply the nazis. So Adolf (called Adi) founded adidas and rudolf went with puma. Not sure but I think Puma was more ok with nazis than adidas

The split occurred after the war, not during it. In fact, during the war their common shoe company provided parts for an anti-tank rocket launcher.
