Pros: This glove is legit. Great feel and amazing quality. It has a ton of character. Hands down the best glove I've ever owned. If you are looking at a new glove, don't waste your money on a poorly crafted glove made with inferior materials- buy an American made Nokona! You won't be sorry.

Cons: Absolutely none!

Pros: This is one fine piece of leather for a slowpitch middle infielder. The deep pocket design with shorter fingerstalls is a great combination to allow a quick release after you look in a rocket shot. I was always a Rawlings during my baseball and younger softball days but after Rawlings ceases making gloves in the USA, I tried Nokona. Nokona matches the quality of the original made in USA Rawlings gloves. All I can say is buy one and break it in the right way. You will not regret it!

Cons: Really? There are no cons.

Pros: No doubt this is a well-made glove with a great feel and plenty of thickness where it counts. Just the right size for an infielder.. but -

Cons: This glove is heavy; about 28 oz. - too heavy for an infielder in my opinion. It took a little longer than expected to break in. Just can't give it 5 stars

Pros: Gorgeous material, clearly very well made.

Cons: Quite heavy, and if your fingers aren't particularly long the pinky slot can be a stretch. If this glove were lighter it'd be perfect, but think long and hard about the weight.

Highest Quality Peter Other

Pros: I own three Nokona gloves and they are made to the highest quality possible. I read one review where the reviewer thought the glove was heavy. Lift some weights and it will feel just like all the other gloves. I had a custom made first baseman's glove and it is perfect. The stitching of my name on the thumb really sets this glove apart from any of the off-shore gloves. Nokona is the best and it is American made. I almost forgot I had a glove made for my five-year-old grandson with his name and birthdate on the palm. Grandpa became a hero that day.

Cons: None.

Have a question about the Nokona Classic Walnut Series Glove: W-1300? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Is there any big difference between this glove and the 2015 Nokona Generation Slow Pitch Series (G-1300)? I figure that the other one is just newer. They also mention in the video that the other one is a quick break-in. Can I expect a similar break-in time period with this one?
Eric
The Nokona Classic Walnut Softball Series (WS-1300) and Generation Slow Pitch Series (G-1300) are made from different leathers which gives each glove difference characteristics. The Generation Series has a slightly lighter feel and will be easier to break-in. That said, the (WS-1300) is made from the Classic Walnut Leather which will take a little longer to break-in, but it should hold it structure well over time.
Mac
Could this glove be used for high school baseball by a pitcher?
Calvin's mom
This Nokona Classic Walnut Softball Series (WS-1300C) could technically be used on the mound by a high school pitcher. However, I think that a pitcher might prefer a model that has a smaller 12.00" length like the Nokona Classic Walnut Series (WB-1200).
Ben
Is this a good glove for a 16U fastpitch outfielder?
a
I would not use this Nokona Classic Walnut Softball Series (WB-1300C) for a fastpitch softball player as it is made with a fit for an adult male slow pitch player. I'd recommend viewing the Nokona Buckaroo Fastpitch Series (BKF-1300) as it will have a 13" length and a fit for a female player.
Ben
Would you recommend this glove for a pitcher / OF in high school?
Smitty
Yes, The 2016 Nokona Walnut Series Glove: WB-1300 would be good for a pitcher/OF. It features a 13" pattern, which is beneficial for outfield, while also containing a closed web. A lot of pitchers like the closed web because it hides the grip that the pitcher has on the baseball.
Nick
I saw the WB-1300 at a sporting goods store and it looks great! Does it come in a 14 or 15 inch size?
RG
The 2016 Nokona Walnut Series Glove: WB-1300 features a 13.00 inch pattern. Unfortunately, it is not offered in a 14.00 or 15.00 inch pattern.
John P.
Does this glove have a pinky loop as well as the thumb loop?
m
The 2016 Nokona Walnut Series Glove: WB-1300 does have a pinky loop and thumb loop on the inside of the finger stalls.
Cameron
Do you recommend this glove in the outfield for softball, or is it just a hardball glove?
Alex
The 2016 Nokona Walnut Series Glove: WB-1300 features a pattern that is designed to work for baseball and softball. The 13" size and the bigger pocket make it a great option for a softball outfielder.
Jason
What is the difference between the Nokona Classic Walnut WS-1300 and the Nokona Walnut WB-1300?
Red
The 2016 Nokona Walnut Series Glove (WB-1300) is designed to be effective for both baseball and softball whereas, the WS-1300 is just designed for softball. Additionally, the WB-1300 has an open back and the WS-1300 has a closed back.
Jake
Does the WB1300 have a deep pocket?
Ragu
This 2016 Nokona Classic Walnut Series Glove (W-1300) has a 13.00" length and a subsequent large pocket. It would function for use in baseball or slow pitch softball.
Ben
Is this glove the same as the Nokona WB model?
ragu
No, the 2016 Nokona Classic Walnut Series Glove: W-1300 is a 13'' glove and the WB-1150 is an 11.50'' glove.
Tori
What is the difference between the W-1300 classic and the w 1300 that does not say classic?
dan
The Nokona Classic Walnut Series Glove: W-1300 is just referring to the Classic Walnut Crunch Leather used to make the glove. It is considered to have more stability, flexibility, and durability.
Dan
My question is: I watched a video review by Craig Ship on the Nokona AMG 600K CW Kimera 12.50" American Legend Series ball glove. Beautiful glove. Is this glove discontinued? If not, where can I order one? Thank you.
none
The Nokona Kangaroo Kimera Series: AMG600KCW Fastpitch is discontinued. However, the Nokona X2 Buckaroo Series Fastpitch Glove: X2-V1250 would be a great substitute featuring a closed web, steer hide and kangaroo leathers with a game-ready feel.
Daveron
I noticed two different styles of gloves in the pictures for the W-1300. One style has the classic Nokona label that says “American Made Since 1934” and another one shows just plain stitching that says “Nokona”. I prefer the classic label. How can you guarantee that is the style I will receive if purchased?
Corey Cattano
The Nokona Classic Walnut Series Glove: W-1300 models we currently have in stock feature the label on the wrist that says "American Made Since 1934" around the Nokona logo.
Logan
Is there any lamb's wool or other material inside of the back strap? (where the glove touches the back of your hand above the wrist)
steve
Unfortunately we no longer have the Nokona Classic Walnut Series Glove: W-1300 in stock so we would not know if it featured the wool on the back of the wrist opening.

About the Brand

Joe Phillips writes about his visit to Nokona. It was like sitting in at the plantation party in Gone with the Wind or maybe gazing from the grandstand at the “Field of Dreams” while the Black Sox players tried to work out their idled muscle kinks. And, I was gently reminded by the lines in that movie while I dug into a delicious plate of North Texas barbecue: “threshing crews eating at outdoor tables. It continually reminds us of what once was, like an Indian-head penny in a handful of new coins. . . You talk a good dream.” And here I was. . . graciously invited into this magical and charming “Field of Glove-Making Dreams” in former Comanche Indian land at Nocona, Texas. It was a warm August evening, basked in a golden harvest moon, while friends and the Nokona family paid its kindly southern regards to two of their own and two of America’s finest but relatively obscure glove makers, Bobby Storey and Elvin Ray “Ab” Lemons. You see, the pair had just completed fifty years of time-honored employment with Nocona Athletic Goods, the last of the all-American made ball glove company's. The occasion brought echoes of past successes and human contentment, but in Nocona today you still experience much the same American texture of yesterday and perhaps a glimpse into tomorrow as well.

The two stately gentlemen were being honored in a way that could have taken place in the same manner when they first reported for full-time work at Nokona, in 1952, or back even earlier, in 1933 when the company started making sports equipment. During a brief and informal presentation at the celebration, Nokona’s new sales manager called the two glove makers “Legends - because that’s what their ball gloves stood for, American know-how and pride taken in a best-made product.”

A man of few words but a marveled craftsman who could literally conjure a sows ear into a playable baseball mitt, Mr. Lemons got up and fondly recalled the several men he worked with through his half-century and of the training that had been passed along to him from his old bosses.

His counter part and just as talented, Bobby Storey, had filled in at just about every job at Nokona. Bobby, the son of the sporting goods founder, R.E. “Bob” Storey had most recently served as president and now chairman of the board of Nokona. Though past retirement age like Mr. Lemons, he’s now serving at one of his favorite roles, that of ball glove designer.

At a time for employment in this country when five years is considered a long tenure with the same company, Ab and Bobby are not even the first to complete a half-century journey with Nocona Athletics. The now deceased Jewell Brickey, hit that milestone in 1993, after joining the company during World War II. That’s the kind of devotion that employees forge into this glove-making outfit. A devoted and sustained tenure here is not rare. Last year the company advertising, displayed along with Storey and Lemons, three other employees who had garnered 40 years with Nokona, Warren Clary, Bud Meekins, and Melvin Weedin.“

I don’t have to tell you that the one constant through all the years has been baseball”, wrote W.P. Kinsella. And the most constant of ball glove makers has been Nokona, and the men and women there who keep alive the tradition of American craftsmanship of ball glove making. The spirit of glove-making is still alive and well in Nocona, Texas.
