First Impressions

First impressions were that they were a great looking glove. Nice design keeping it simple but effective with no gimmicks. I opted to drop to a size 9 in these as the website states that they do feel slightly bigger on our hands and the fit was superb. One of the best fitting gloves I have had. Very snug on the hand but not causing any discomfort to my fingers. I would say I’m normally a 9.5 but usually opted for a 10 as I preferred a slight bit of room in my gloves, but since having these on I now go for a more snug fit when buying my gloves. Straight out of the bag they were tacky, but I wouldn’t have used them right away without a pre wash. I gave them one pre wash and they felt fantastic and the grip really came to life.

 

Use

I’ve used these around 20 times now, they were initially bought in April 2017 so have been used on and off for almost a year now and the latex is still in great condition and is showing no signs of drying out. The majority of these uses were in matches, with a small handful (maybe 3-4 max) were in training. Right after that first pre wash the grip was outstanding. My first use actually brought me my first clean sheet of the season. Coincidence… Maybe. I have used the gloves in a mixture of wet and dry conditions, mostly on astro but with some uses being on grass. The grip has never let me down and I have had full confidence in the gloves no matter what the conditions were. One of the uses was on a grass pitch where the goalmouth was particularly sandy. This had no effect on the gloves whatsoever and they are still going strong. I would still have the confidence to wear these in a match to date. Due to dropping a size and the gloves having a snugger feel to them, it has changed my view on how a glove should fit and like mentioned before, I now like my gloves to be snug rather than roomy. This has given me a really natural feel on the ball and I think that this had really improved my handling having a glove that fits better. The 4mm palm gives great shock absorption but like mentioned, still allows a very natural feel on the ball. These have been used on and off for a year now and I still carry them in my match day bag to date. The durability on them has been excellent considering most games have been on astro.

 

Ratings (out of 10)

 

Looks 8.5

 

Fit  9 (I’ve given this rating as it is stated on the website they are large fitting and by following this have personally found it the best fitting glove I’ve had in a long time)

Dry Grip 9

 

Wet Grip 8.5

 

Durability 8.5

 

Overall 8.6

 

 

Conclusion

I have thoroughly enjoyed using these gloves and still do a year down the line. I would have no issues getting these out of the bag to use in a match day. I have been really impressed with the build quality and loved the fit of the gloves, which has completely changed my outlook on how I like my gloves to fit. Performance wise these have never let me down, even in the most challenging wet conditions and also in unnaturally sandy conditions. I would definitely recommend these gloves to anyone.
