Matt's Guide to buying a pair of goalkeeping gloves.

My Guide to buying a pair of gloves.

There is a range of different goalkeeper gloves out there with different cuts and different companies to try and use when playing in football matches and training but which company is the best?

There are a variety of different cuts of gloves out there which can be used, for me, this is of personal preference. Now this may take some time to really get the glove that suits you but eventually, you will find it. Me personally I find the ‘negative cut’ glove best suited for me, I find there is lots of grip with this glove and allows me to make a variety of saves comfortably with this.

I get asked a lot by goalkeepers ‘do these gloves last?’, ‘do I have to treat the gloves?’

Gloves are made with a latex material which endures well dependant on how much care you give them. Do you want a pair of gloves that you have bought to last? Make sure you take care of them.

My personal preference when glove buying is ensuring I am able to get a 4mm latex covering around the finger and palm, this is enough coverage for me to ensure I am able to get a comfy set of gloves with a comfortable save which can stick to the glove, I have tried fingersave gloves but the experience for me was not great.

The company to really look at when buying gloves are One Glove. This company provides a range of goalkeeper glove styles which look good and do a great job with durability and quality. The variety of different cut that this glove company offer caters for all.
