Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1125CW
Average Customer Review
A really neat glove. Feels great and is also very light. I'm not sure it would hold up to everyday use for an entire season, but for anyone who needs a glove just for playing catch or as a backup, this would be a great one.
Needs more padding in the palm. But it's no big deal if you catch the ball square in the pocket.
High-quality, well-softened leather made this glove easy to close right out of the box. It has a wonderful vintage look without looking worn-out (lighter color than the pictures reflect). I would expect this to be a highly effective infielder's glove for players of all ages, or a great multi-purpose glove for women or kids. I have absolutely no concerns about longevity or durability. It looks like it will last a lifetime, no matter how frequently used. I got this as a gift for my wife, and I am envious. I am counting the days until I can afford my own Shoeless Joe glove.
The specific glove that we received created a little discomfort inside the palm due to the way one of the laces was pulled through (possibly the only potential drawback to it being handmade). I put a small band-aid over the one tiny spot of abrasive, pinching lace, and the discomfort went away. The palm of the glove does lack padding, so I would not recommend this glove for anyone who values a well-padded palm.
I'll compare this to my Primo. Well first things first, the padding is almost none. After a while of using padded palms you forget what the ball really feels like. Yes, the leather is pre-broken-in but still feels solid. Break in is an hour of long toss. I turned some heads when I brought this to practice. The felt brand tag is the perfect accent and the Primo feels big and heavy compared to the lighter, more shallow Shoeless Joe.
Just remember what every coach has yelled, two hands! I bought this as a backup and the Rawlings as a game day. Yeah, that changed.

Would the 11.25 be too large for a tall 8 year old who needs a glove that would be used in the outfield and also be used at first base occasionally?
While an 11.25 inch pattern could be appropriate for those positions, the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1125CW) would be an adult model that might be too big for the players hand. Most 8 year old players would still need a youth model glove with smaller hand opening and finger stalls.
Since the 10" Shoeless glove is your largest youth size, would this glove be too large for a youth 10-11 years old? Thank you. Fred
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1125CW) is an adult glove. However, the 11.25" size would work for a 10-11 year old player.
You had another 1125 model that appears to be discontinued. I want to purchase it. I don't recall the two letters following the 1125, but it had nice lacing on the outside coming off the web. Please advise if available.
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series came in a 1125SW as well, but that model has been discontinued, so unfortunately we will not be getting anymore of them back in stock.
Shoeless Joe gloves give a player the feeling and quality of gloves used by professional ball players over the last 100 years. The Gloves are individually hand-cut and sewn from Special Aged Antique Tobacco Leather Hides. Our gloves are then hand-rubbed with old time ingredients to soften the leather before they go through our breaking in process that leaves the Glove with a beaten up and “Game Worn™” look and feel, of a broken in glove.
