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.
