Nokona Walnut Softball Series: WS1300C
Average Customer Review
I have a version of this glove made with Kangaroo leather on the back. It is a beautiful glove and extremely well made. Plays wonderfully. You never have to worry about a hard-hit ball bending the glove back. I love it when people see it. They've never heard of it but are immediately impressed. I love that it is American made.
No matter how many times you read how stiff this glove is, it will shock you when you pull it out of the box. Take this as a sign of quality. You get the feeling that it is all but indestructible. One issue: My hand gets rather sweaty. If I had to do again, I would choose a pattern with an open back. But it would be a Nokona.
There is certainly a hand-made feel with Nokona. This is the glove I used as a player, and now as a coach it does me good to see my players wearing and taking pride in it. And that's why I still use Nokona. It's simply a quality product, and you can tell from the first moment you hold it.
With this high grade leather it's going to be a battle to break in. But it's worth the love, affection and time to get it there.

What is the best way to break this glove in? My model is WS-1300. Some say to take it to Dick's and have it steamed?
There are many ways to break in the Nokona Walnut Softball Series: WS1300C. Steaming a glove will help reduce the break-in period but can also reduce the durability of the glove. We would recommend looking at the following: http://www.justballgloves.com/glove-resource-guide/
What is the difference between the fastpitch gloves and softball gloves versus the adult baseball gloves? Is the quality of leather the same? I was told that the fastpitch was stronger. Is this true?
All the gloves in Nokona's Walnut series will all be of similar quality. The softball series like the Nokona Walnut Softball Series (WS1300C) use the same grade and quality of leather as the baseball models like the Nokona Classic Walnut Series (WB-1275M).
I play Fastpitch softball and need a 13" glove because I have rather big hands and I play outfield and first base. I would like a glove that I can use at each position. Would this be a good fit?
The Nokona Walnut Softball Series: (WS1300C) would be an excellent glove for multiple positions. This glove is made from a lightweight yet sturdy Walnut Tanned Leather, features basket webbing and a adjustable wrist strap. Due to these features, I would highly recommend this model.
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
