atalasport is an italian sports brand founded in Padua in 1952

For three decades atalasport developed technical and leisure footwear with exclusive workmanship and aesthetic innovation for football, cycling, running, athletics, tennis and indoor sports
For about twenty years (from '59 until the end of the 70s) atalasport collaborated as technical sponsor with the best italian teams in serie A, including Juventus and "Grande Inter", and supported the Italian National Team during the World Cup in Mexico in 1970 and West Germany '74.
Some of most important athletes were Helenio Herrera, Sandro Mazzola, Mario Corso, Jair da Costa and Tarcisio Burgnich.
In those years atalasport was one of the few Italian companies that had a significant presence in the United States.
Even the atalasport marketing always had a vision of avantgarde for its time. Like the collaboration established with one of the most successful clothing brands in the United States Abercrombie & Fitch. The result of the collaboration was a wooden tennis racket selected then by the United States Lawn Tennis Association.
