I am stating more than the obvious when I state picking the correct keeping glove is important for a goalkeeper!
However did you know that most keepers get this wrong!
Actually its more the parents who buy for their child who normally get this sadly wrong.
Goalkeepers and or their parents basically pick the same gloves their favourite professional keeper wears, or they see a glove sale and cannot resist paying the discounted sale price.
But the problem is here guys, if you buy the wrong shape keeper glove for the shape of your hand, this is obviously not going tobe good no matter how good the glove deal was or how much you love your favourite keeper!
If you buy the wrong glove, not only could it severely affect your goalkeeping performance but the glove may actually wear away much faster or even rip!
But if you pick the right goalie glove, not only can it help your performance (as you will obviously play and train better if the gloves feels more comfortable!) but also, your gk gloves will probably last longer… so it is worth finding out the best gk glove shape for your handshape! And the great news is.... it will not cost you any more money to find a glove that best s fits your hand shape.
there will be a keeper glove shape to fit your shaped hand because there is now sooooo many different types of gloves cuts on the market from Flat Palm, Roll Finger, Hybrid to negative cut.. so you have options
So here is the $1million dollar question?
how do YOU buy the correct goalkeepers glove for your hand shape??
