Goalkeeper Gloves Review

Goalkeeper Gloves Review

Is it important, to get a glove review before you buy?

My answer is, Yes and no!

The reason I say yes is it obviously good before you buy anything to try and get other people’s views on the product you ant t buy. Especially if these people have worn the gloves for goalkeeper matches or goalkeeper training sessions and in particular its a keeper glove you are thinking about buying. Because, you can see if the grip is good (in both dry and wet weather), the glove is durable etc etc.

The reason I say no, is you also have to be very careful!!!

 As there are so many goalkeeper gloves on the market now, with different palm cuts, for example, negative cut, flat palm and roll finger glove palms. Also not forgetting finger save keeper gloves.
Now most goalies do not know this but the shape of your hand will determine what goalie glove palm cut is ‘Right for YOUR hand”

Which Glove palm is best for you?

This is not set in stone, but generally goalkeepers with broad hands will best suite, negative cut or flat palm goalie gloves, were keepers with thin hands generally best suit roll finger.

So for example when keepers go onto goalkeeper glove review websites they sadly do not realise how important knowing what glove is right for the shape of their hand. So if they have a thin hand and read all great comments about a flat palm or Negative cut gloves, even thought the comments might be great and they buy, they probably are buying the wrong glove for the shape of their hand!

So before you get comments on gloves for yourself, and you even think of buying a pair of goalkeeping gloves, please make sure its the right palm/glove for your hand!!!

You can then search keeper glove reviews for gloves that fir your hand shape.

I hope this goalkeeping tip helped?

Best of Goalkeeping
