2016 Nokona Classic Walnut Softball Series: WS-1250C
Average Customer Review
Excellent Leather quality, construction and workmanship. What you would expect from an American Made product. The 12.5" pattern has a perfect pocket and finger design for softball. Compared to 12.75" baseball gloves it was superior in design for a softball. As a utility glove this is the perfect size to be used at any position, not too big, not too small, and suitable for first base. I tried the 1300C and that glove is huge in comparison, requiring people with smaller hands to put two fingers in the pinky finger to be acceptable for use given the massive size of the palm and fingers. If you were to have only one glove for Slow Pitch Softball, this is the perfect one. Break-in took about two weeks, playing catch for 20min twice, working it in on the couch with a ball for about 10-15min per day, and wrapping it tight with a ball in the pocket when stored. It doesn't get as floppy as the open back models with the walnut leather. Buy American Made and you won't be disappointed.
Unfortunately the joint piping is felt, something I guess manufactures are doing to save money and is the only drawback compared to other gloves. The price point is not bad however given the quality and leather. This model surprisingly has been removed from the Nokona 2015 catalog, and in my opinion doesn't really have a suitable replacement. I tried the 12.25" buckaroo utility model (the closest alternative in the new catalog), but thought the 1250C was superior in design for slow pitch softball (bigger pocket, and better finger design.

(1) Do you guys have this exact glove, but in left hand thrower? (2) If not, where could I find it in left hand thrower?
(1) Unfortunately, we have sold out the the left hand thrower option of this 2016 Nokona Classic Walnut Softball Series (WS1250C) and do not plan to re-stock in that thrower option. (2) After an internet search, I am having trouble finding a location that carries the left hand thrower option.

As of right now, the 2016 Nokona Classic Walnut Softball Series: WS1250C is on back-order (for RHT; seems like the LHT may possibly be discontinued). As for when we may get this item back in stock for the RHT option we do not know that expected delivery. We do not have pictures of the used items on our site but this item will be in excellent condition. Basically, this means the glove may show some light break-in from previous owner, slight leather discoloration from oil/conditioner that was applied and possibly minimal scratches on the leather (if customer did more than play catch with it). This used glove would come with our 100 day guarantee so it is a great option to save money on a high quality glove.
America’s pastime. American madeTM. Since 1934, Nokona has been producing ball gloves for America’s pastime right here in the United States.

They are made by Americans who carefully cut, stamp, stitch, lace, and embroider each glove by hand. Each Nokona has its own unique identity and feel, based on the careful selection of leather per.... read more
