Why it can be a BIG mistake buying cheap goalie gloves!
Parents and Goalkeepers PLEASE read!
Goalkeepers or a parent of a golkeeper who type in the term cheap goalkeeper gloves into a search engine normally tend to get the worst type of goalie glove on the market that wear away too quickly which means in the long run they end up spending more money through the soccer season.
This is because cheap goalkeepers gloves generally have poor quality and poor specifications, which means for the most part they will wear away ALOT quicker.
Also cheap gloves again generally do not perform very well, ie their grip will be very poor!
I understand some goalkeepers might not have a choice because of lack of money in the household so they have to purchase the cheaper goalkeeping gloves. However, did you know if you spent maybe just £5 ($8) more on a pair of gloves this will be a smarter option.
So instead of going through say six pairs of cheap poor quality gloves each season, you might only go through three maybe four pairs if you spend a bit more on your keeper gloves, thus saving you money but more importantly you will have a glove that will perform well for you.
In my experience, if you spend less than £10 ($16) for a pair of cheap goalie gloves, you will have the problems above. But if you can stretch that bit more money to say £12-£15 ($20-$22) you will get a much better performing glove that will last you longer, thus saving you money throughout the season.
So paying that bit more on your gloves are worth it!
