Nokona Walnut Series: N80W First Base Mitt
Average Customer Review
My parents gave me this glove for Christmas. My Dad put 2 applications of Nokona condition cream on it 2 weeks before Christmas. It took only 2 weeks to completely break it in. This glove is amazing! I'm 15, and it's the best glove I've ever owned. Joey Chandler, Ft Worth, TX
Got this to replace my trusty Cooper. It's a well-made, heavily-built, and good looking mitt. Substantial wrist strap keeps the glove in place. Superior in every way to the Nokona Buckaroo (which I returned for this model). Thanks to JustBallGloves for make the swap easy.
Very minor. I'd prefer a little padding on the wrist strap and inner-back of the glove. Break-in goes well if you are willing to sit on it all day at work for a week or so â€” which, sadly, I am.

what is the average break in time? my daughter plays National fastpitch softball 14u. practices 3 times a week tourn. anywhere from 2-4 a month.
The average break-in time is tough to tell on the Nokona Walnut Series (N80W First Base Mitt). Really depends on how much time is spent each day breaking it in. Based on your weekly practice I would think you could have this glove formed to your liking within a couple weeks.
Does this mitt come is a left hand thrower? I have checked everywhere and I cant seem to find it, where would be a good place to look if it is not here?
The Nokona Walnut Series (N80W First Base Mitt) is manufactured in a left hand thrower. We do not currently have the left-hand thrower model in stock. I would recommend a broad google search for the left hand thrower model in a 13" model.
Every fastpitch softball catcher's mitt I have tried on is too small for my hand. Would this mitt be a good mitt for catching fastpitch? Do you have any other recommendations?
The Nokona Walnut Series (N80W First Base Mitt) is designed for first base and utility infield usage. It will be difficult to consistently control a softball as a catcher with this glove. Additionally, most fastpitch catcher's mitts are designed for girls with smaller fingerstalls and wrist openings. If the fastpitch catcher's mitts are too small, we would recommend considering a baseball catcher's mitt in a 32.00 inch or larger pattern.
America’s pastime. American madeTM. Since 1934, Nokona has been producing ball gloves for America’s pastime right here in the United States. Made with top-grain American hides provided by American ranchers, our leathers are tanned in the USA to Nokona’s specifications. Nokona gloves are still produced in the very same small town in Texas, where Nokona all started in the 1920s. 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
