Awesome glove, all my kids want Nokona now Andy Parent

Pros: I played ball for ten years and then kids. The two oldest were into other sports, but all three of my youngest are playing fastpitch softball. I wanted a glove for playing catch and for doing some stand-in assistant coaching. I looked around for a while, decided on this one and very happy with it. The break-in was easy enough to do while using the glove. Right out of the box, it's got a pocket that'll hold firm an 11 inch fastpitch softball. I'm a big dude, and this glove fits my hand just fine.

Cons: None that I can find.

Have a question about the Nokona SKN 13" Slow Pitch Softball Glove: SKN-9-NV? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

What are the main differences between the leathers of the 13" Nokona line? (Buckaroo, Classic and this model)?
The American Bison leather of this model creates a lightweight, flexible feel. The Buckaroo will be a similar quality, but a bit sturdier/stiffer and heavier. The Walnut is similiar to the Buckaroo leather, just slightly lower quality. You can find more information on each glove by looking under the "Features" and "Description" sections for each.

I am 61 and coach girls travel ball. I used to play high level slow pitch though. That being said, I will mainly use this glove for coaching. Considering this glove or the Walnut 13 inch. How could I try it on. Is there a return policy?

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.
