We ship all over the world but international shipping does cost more and takes more time. There is usually a 24-48 hour turnaround for international orders at Keeperstop. We ship Internationally by a United States Postal Service shipping partner, which is much cheaper and easier than shipping direct with USPS or UPS. Packages can arrive within 10 - 30 business days, maybe more or less, depending on the time of year and international customs departments. Much of the time delays in delivery are due to local costums issues or delivery methods not that of keeperstop.com or our logistics partners. We want the goalkeeper gloves and equipment in your hands as quickly as possible. At times we are at the mercy of the local postal system. If your order is of an urgent nature, international packages can be sent by USPS International Priority Mail or USPS Express service directly if the additional shipping costs are covered and arrangements made. Shipping direct with USPS priority mail is much more expensive than shipping through our logistics partner. Contact us if alternative arrangements are needed.

Does Keeperstop.com carry women goalkeeper gloves and goalkeeper equipment for girls?
Generally goalkeeper equipment is unisex sizing. Some manufacturers will produce goalkeeper gloves and goalkeeper jerseys for females. If the product is specifically for females you will see women or girls in the title. Goalkeepers come in all shapes and sizes. Goalkeeper companies are making goalkeeper gloves for goalkeepers with narrow hands and long fingers as well as goalkeeper jerseys and other goalkeeper equipment that are more form fitting. We know if adidas goalkeeping products run larger; how Reusch goalkeeper gloves compare with Sells Goalkeeper Products; and if Puma goalkeeper jerseys are more form fitting than another for example. We are here to help you find the perfect fit female or male.
Goalkeeper Glove Questions:
Some goalkeeper gloves have finger protection; do I need it?
Choosing finger protection is a personal decision. Some goalkeepers require finger protection or support due to reoccurring finger injuries or the keeper needs more support due to harder shots from older players.
What is finger protection in goalkeeper gloves?
Finger protection is very popular with concerned parents and youth goalkeepers. Finger protection has different names between the manufactures. Adidas has Fingersaves; Reusch refers to their finger protection as Ortho Tec; Uhlsport has finger support. Sometimes finger protection can be just plastic stays that run up the fingers in the backhand or a one piece systems. Finger protection can be removed to customize or replace in higher priced gloves. Goalkeeper finger protection is supports that allow the fingers to bend forward but not passed the backhand to help prevent hyperextension.
How long should my goalkeeper glove last?
There is no defined life span for a goalkeeper glove. A goalkeeper’s technique, number of shots, playing conditions, playing surface, and glove care all define the life span of the glove. Game gloves with softer tacky latex wear quicker.
Goalkeeper gloves are perishables. Dirt and bacteria eat away at the lining of the glove, make them stink, and dry out the palm latex. The softer palm latex found in higher end game gloves provide better grip. The soft tacky latex is not durable. Durability is achieved by adding synthetics to the latex to make the glove denser. A dense palm, and more additives increase the durability. It is very tough to find a glove with superior grip and great durability. There is a sacrifice between the two. A goalkeeper can find a glove that has both but that means the goalkeeper glove sacrifices a bit of both to achieve this balance.
