Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150IW
Average Customer Review
Great old look and feel to the glove. Break in is easy but the thumb and pinky stay rigid to keep the glove working properly.
It would be nice if the glove had a little more padding. There is virtually no padding in the palm of the glove so if you get the ball in the palm instead of the pocket it is going to sting.

Which models are available for lefty throwers?
Since the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150IW) is a right-handed glove, similar gloves include the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1175IW) and the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150HW).
What would the difference be between the 1150IW & 1175IW? I have a 14 year old that plays most infield positions (Pitcher, Third base, Short Stop & First Base). Between those two which would you recommend?
The main difference between the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150IW) and the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1175IW) is the sizing. The 1150IW is a 11.50" pattern, whereas the 1175IW is a 11.75" pattern. Based on his age and position, our Glove Coach recommends a 11.25" pattern. Sizing is preferential though, so if he would like to go up in size, that is something to take into consideration. Both gloves are great choices, it will truly depend on his preference on sizing.
When broken in, will this glove be floppy like the cheaper A500? Or will it feel like a good A2000?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150IW) will be a solid mixture of both gloves you mentioned. It will not be as stiff as the A2000. But it will hold its shape very well for a glove made from the very soft Tobacco Leather.
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.
