Shoeless Joe Gloves - "when it was just a game". Shoeless Joe Gloves give a player the quality, feel and style of the gloves used by professional ball players over the last 100 years. You can choose glove models used in the first half of century in the Golden Age Series or today`s models in the Professional Model Series. The Shoeless Joe gloves are individually hand-cut and sewn from Special Aged Antique Tobacco Leather Hides. Shoeless Joe gloves are then hand-rubbed with old time ingredients to soften the leather before they go through their breaking in process that leaves the glove with a beaten up and `Game Worn` look and feel, of a broken in glove. Thus each glove is unstructured giving it its own unique feature. Players can choose to play with an old time or modern day web without having to change to another model. A great play is lived only once, but your glove, you`ll keep it forever. If you end a game with a clean uniform our gloves are not for you. Shoeless Joe Gloves - "when it was just a game".

add_circle_outlinePros: I was a bit worried when ordering this glove, I already have a vintage model glove from a company called "Victory" that is made for play. There is barely any padding in it, where even playing catch with my 7 year old son stings my hand. I might as well wear an oven mitt. This Shoeless Joe glove is AWESOME! Tons of padding - no pain - and easy to catch with! GREAT PURCHASE!
remove_circle_outlineCons: It's made in Mexico. I guess it would be too good to be true if it was made in the States!
I play SS for a men's slow pitch team. Not to sound arrogant, but I have a lot of confidence fielding the ball however I'm scared that if I were to dive for balls would the impact from the ground make the ball pop out? I know it's a weird question, but I feel like this is a "must two hands" type of glove. Should I take the risk and try to get better or should I play it safe and order a more modern style like the Shoeless Joe 1150IW ?
sorry to be so particular.. Thanks!
This is a vintage model glove that really isn't great for competitive play. I would go with a more modern style glove.
I have small hands. I'm 23 yr old male SS. How is the size of this glove and the feel/space for your hand?
This really won't fit like a traditional glove and may take some time to get used to. You shouldn't have a problem with the fit though.
I'm 15 years old have about average size hands. Will the glove fit or is it mainly for adults?
The Shoeless Joe Golden Age Series would fit fine for a 15 year old.
Does this glove have the same amount of padding as the 1957 model?
The Shoeless Joe Golden Age Series 1949 will have very similar amounts of padding as the Shoeless Joe Golden Age Series 1956. The main difference will be the three finger design of the 1949 verse the four finger design of the 1956.
I'm thinking about using one of the Golden Age gloves on my high school team. Which would be a better glove this one or the 1957? Since there are only four fingers total on this glove I would put two in the pinky correct?
The Shoeless Joe Golden Age series glove is really more of a nostalgic glove, made for casual catch and play. It is not recommended using these gloves in competitive high school play. If I had to choose one, I would use the 1957 as this has the most functional design. The two fingers in the pinky stall would be the best way to use this glove.
How is the leather quality of this glove compare to modern day gloves? Does the glove company beat up the leather so much that it is dry or worn out to make it look older?
The special aged antique tobacco leather used on the Shoeless Joe Golden Age Series 1949 would not be similar to the leather used on gloves today. It will be aged and worn through a special process to give it a more worn look and feel.
What size is the glove?
The Shoeless Joe Golden Age Series 1949 is going to have be approximate 11.5" in size.
What Golden Age Series glove should I get? I want a glove where I can actually throw with my step dad and feel like I was playing back then. I am a catcher.
The Golden Age Series gloves like the Shoeless Joe Golden Age Series 1949 are not really intended for play. They are more for decoration or as a conversation piece or collectible. One model would not be much more capable for play than another.
Can I use this glove for playing purposes in my league?
We do not recommend using this glove for games. The Shoeless Joe Golden Age Series (1949) is not designed for play in today's leagues. This is a replica of the gloves used in 1949 era.
Can I get this glove in left hand throw?
The Shoeless Joe Golden Age Series: 1949 is only featured in a RHT.
