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 athletes were finally met. After his son Gebhard joins the company, 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 with a latex palm in history. A milestone for the world of soccer and Sepp Maier as well, who won the World Cup just the year after.

In 1984, on the eve of founder Karl Reusch’s 85th birthday, Reusch had already established itself as the world’s market leader in the sporting glove industry.

Since 1974, many goalkeepers in the first national leagues all over the world have trusted Reusch Goalkeeper Gloves, bringing home six World Championships, six European Championships, three Copa America, and many more. Since the 80s, alpine athletes wearing Reusch gloves have conquered most of the medals at major alpine skiing competitions, ranging from Ski World Cups to the Winter Olympics. 

Thanks to Reusch’s worldwide presence and distribution channels, the company is now also one of the authorized distributors for major sporting goods brands such as Deuter. In addition, as of January 1, 2023, Reusch became Speedo’s exclusive distributor for Italy and Austria as well as the authorized Italian distributor for Red Bull Spect Eyewear.
