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.

How good is the quality of these gloves? Which glove would it compare to and will it hold its shape?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150IW) is a nice quality glove. It has good durable leather but is designed to be softer and have a more worn feel. It is hard to compare it because most gloves with this quality of leather will not be as soft by design. If taken care of it should how its shape well.
I have a 10 year old who currently uses an Akadema AZR95. He complains that the glove is too small for his hand. He plays both infield and outfield and would like a glove that is a bit larger than the AZR95. Recommendations here are to go with a youth model but I don't want to be in the same situation if we go with something like the ARC88 or the ATM92 - 12. Thoughts?
If the youth model glove like the Akadema Prodigy Series (AZR95-12 Youth) is fitting too snug, it may be that your player's hands are getting too large for that smaller fit. It may be good to go with a more transitional style glove like the Wilson A1K or Rawlings Pro Taper line.
