I don't see a difference in the two mitts except one has a "C," W-N80 or W-N80C. Also, on your glove features one is game ready and the other is stiff. They both have the same leather. Please explain.
The Nokona Walnut 14" First Base Mitt: W-N80C is comprised from a walnut crunch steerhide and is a 14 inch mitt. Unfortunately we were not able to locate the product with the code W-N80C on our site or Nokona's so we would not be able to ascertain what the differences would be.
Is it game ready(broke in) on day one?
The Nokona Walnut 14" First Base Mitt: W-N80C is a game ready option. It will come soft with very little work by the player.
What is the padding like for the W-N80C?
Robert Schulz
This Nokona Walnut 14" First Base Mitt: W-N80C will feature extra padding along thumb and pinky portions to allow for extra protection. This glove will also have a longer length and curved shaved around the fingers for better ability to scoop the ball.
Can this be used for high school boys baseball?
Mike boleratz
The Nokona Walnut 14" First Base Mitt: W-N80C is designed for a softball player, therefore it is not recommended for baseball use. The pocket is made deeper and shorter than a traditional baseball mitt and may prove to be challenging for a baseball player.
Most first base mitts have an open web. I'm wondering why this is and if the closed web works okay on the W-N80C
The Nokona Walnut 14" First Base Mitt: W-N80C will feature a fully closed web design. This design will not impact the quality of the mitt.
Is this glove designed for a male or female hand? I am looking for a first-base mitt to catch my daughter (who pitches). However, 6' 2" adult male, I have yet to find a fastpitch glove that will actually fit my hand. For reference, I currently use a Rawlings 14" Premier Slow Pitch glove, but I need to upgrade to something more suitable for catching my daughter when she pitches.
Drew Buoni
This Nokona Walnut 14" First Base Mitt: W-N80C will be made to fit an adult males hand and should be an excellent option/upgrade for you!

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.
