HOW IT STARTED
In 1934, Karl Reusch manufactured his first pair of gloves in the attic of his home. After developing and improving glove engineering for decades, in 1972 the needs of professional alpine athletes were finally met. Together with his son Gebhard, Reusch entered the industry with a collection of specially designed winter gloves and started expanding its market activities. One year later, in close cooperation with the German goalkeeper legend Sepp Maier, Gebhard Reusch developed the first goalkeeper glove in history. A milestone for the world of soccer and Sepp Maier as well, who won the World Cup just one year later.

HOW IT CONTINUED
Since 1972, alpine athletes wearing Reusch gloves have conquered 75% of all available medals at major alpine skiing competitions, ranging from Ski World Cups to the Winter Olympics. Since 1974, many goalkeepers in the first national divisions all over the world have trusted in Reusch Goalkeeper Gloves, bringing home six World Championships, six European Championships, three Copa America, and many more. 
After celebrating Rausch’s 70th anniversary in 2004, Reusch got back to its roots and has been concentrating on what it knows best ever since: delivering professional alpine and soccer gloves for amateurs and professionals.
