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: When it Was Just a Game! Free Shipping!
add_circle_outlinePros: I ordered two gloves for my 8 yr. old to try. This one seemed to be more appropriately sized for him. The Shoeless Joe gloves are very easy to break in and he's been catching everything in sight! I will continue to use this product with all of my future glove purchases.
add_circle_outlinePros: Very nearly game ready. Very good quality that indicates a crafted rather than manufactured product. Excellent value and a solid, if not exceptional, glove for the vast majority of players out there. Aesthetically pleasing to the purist.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Made in Mexico. Would rather this be made in the USA, but at least it's from North America and not China. Jury out on durability and long term performance.
add_circle_outlinePros: I bought this glove last year for my son who is 8. We play a lot of baseball and this glove has held up great! Soft out of the box and maintains the same great feel over a year later.
add_circle_outlinePros: This glove is great! It has given my nine year old son great confidence that any ball that gets in or partially in this glove will stay. Baseballs just seem to stick to this glove!
remove_circle_outlineCons: I bought it used and it came more used than I thought. Someone had much larger hands than my nine-year-old. But, it still worked awesome, we've upgraded to a brand new one.
add_circle_outlinePros: BEST. GLOVE. EVER. Got this glove as a birthday present for my 9 year old who plays P/OF. He loved it from the second he took it out. We oiled it up and it was broke in by the end of the tournament he played that weekend. His team mates love it, his coaches love it. I was looking for a glove that was completely leather, nothing else. This is it...leather, steel and baseballs. I will be hard pressed to buy anything else again.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Didn't get it sooner. Spent money on other gloves before this.
add_circle_outlinePros: Great glove. I did a lot of research and bought it for my 10u travel son. He practiced in it once then played three weekend games with it. It was exceptional at SS, 3rd, P, and okay at first. The mod T makes ball transfer easy. I hope it maintains durability over time. Being a young boy, he also likes being the only one on the field not wearing a Wilson or Rawlings.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Not enough padding for first basemen. If my son played 1st more often, I would opt for either a first baseman's mitt or a more padded utility/backup glove.
add_circle_outlinePros: Have had a glove on my hand since late 1960s...I wish it had been this glove the entire time. The leather quality is incredible, it really is game ready, quickly becomes "your" glove--shapes to hand for comfort and feel. By far, the best glove I have ever owned.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Still trying to find something to complain about with this glove, but still can't find anything.
add_circle_outlinePros: Practice couple times and saw its first two games at shortstop today and it was web gem city up the Middle. He gobbled up everything in site like pac man! Hardly a break in period. Believe the company to be very reputable and back their product if there is an issue. My boy is 15 and a sophomore in high school and pretty darn sure this will be the glove he uses this season in high school.
add_circle_outlinePros: Great looking glove, I bought it for my 9 year old son. We also previously purchased the break in kit that you can buy from justballgloves and my son wraps it in the rubber bands with a ball inside at night and beats it with the mallet during the day and after about a week the glove is pretty close to being broken in and game ready. We are happy with the purchase and quality of the glove.
add_circle_outlinePros: Love this glove! I have used it for the past year, through a full high school season, summer ball, college fall ball, and the beginning of the college year. The interior of the glove feels great, I personally prefer it to the liner of an a2k. creates a nice pocket. By this point, it is very floppy but is NOT pancaked, which is just the way I like my gloves. Pretty lightweight, and doesn't require conditioning very often due to the pre oiled leather. Great classic look. Laces hold up well.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Some people don't like the plastic inserts as you can't "mold" the glove. I personally don't mind, and think they give the glove some structure. Others have also complained about the padding, but I can say that as a college pitcher, I have no complaints about the padding.
My son is 11, plays on a traveling team, and will play mostly outfield but 2nd and 1st on occasion. Is this mainly an adult glove? He has used his Akadema glove for the last 3 seasons.
This can be used by adults or younger players. If you need a glove that's made smaller to fit a younger players hand, look for the word "Youth" in the product's name.
I am 14 and i was wondering if the size of this glove is ok since I am a middle infielder?
For 14 and 15 year olds who play middle infield, a glove between 11 and 11.5 inches is generally recommended. This is a 11.5 inch glove and should work well for you.
If Im 13 playing shortstop and going in to junior league next year and my hand size from wrist to middle finger is 61/4 inches would this glove be good for quick transfer of the ball and a good fielding glove for me?
Yes, this would be a very good glove for shortstop. Most infields use 11.00-11.50 inch gloves.
I'm going to be a freshman in high school and I play third base. Is this glove good for third?
An 11.5 inch glove is a good size for a third baseman at the high school level. This should work well for you.
My son is 11 yo and plays mostly centerfield and pitcher on a travel team. Is this the right size glove for him?
Generally speaking outfielders use 12 inch to 12.50 inch gloves. This is the perfect size for pitchers. If you are wanting one glove to cover both positions, I would lean toward a 12 inch glove, that is a good multi purpose size.
My 12 yr old son plays infield, outfield, and pitches. Would you recommend this glove or another?
For a 12 year old who plays multiple positions, I would recommend a 12 inch glove. This would probably be a little better fit for him right now, especially if he plays multiple positions.
What is the difference between a "modified trapeze" and a "trapeze" glove? I am looking, in particular, at the 1150MT and th1150TZ? Is the modified trapeze tighter than the other?
When it comes to the glove webbing, it almost entirely comes down to the personal preference of the player. There won't be much difference between the two types of webbing, but the regular trapeze web may form a slightly deeper pocket than the modified trapeze web.
I have two questions. First, where are Shoeless Joe gloves made? Also, how does the leather of this glove compare to the Slugger Omaha Pro series?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series is made in Mexico. The Shoeless Joe will be softer leather and more durable than the Omaha Pro Series.
What's the best practice to maintain this glove?
Applying glove oil or leather conditioner to the glove about once every two weeks will help to maintain your Shoeless Joe glove. Also try and keep the glove out of direct heat and sunlight when you aren't using it.
Is the leather for this glove new or old?
I'm not quite sure what you mean, but Shoeless Joe uses new leather when manufacturing their gloves.
I have a 9 year old boy who plays about 60 games a year and I want a good glove for him to use for the next few years. he plays 2nd, center and pitches. Would you recommend this glove for him?
For a 9 year old, I would recommend an 11.5" youth glove. A youth model will fit a younger players hand much better. Some of the top selling 11.5" youth gloves are the Wilson A2000 SuperSkin Showcase Series: SC1787SS, Wilson A1000 SuperSkin Showcase Series: SCDW5SS, and Rawlings Mark of a Pro Series: TP1150MT.
Would this be a good for a sophomore in high school 2nd baseman wanting to use it through out high school?
At 11.5", the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150MT is a great size for a High School 2nd baseman. However, if you want a glove to last 3 or more years, I would recommend something with a little more durability (something around $200 or more will offer better durability).
I like the old school style, when it breaks in is it more on the floppy side?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150MT will come broken-in from the factory. It will not be floppy.
Are Shoeless Joe gloves made in the USA?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150MT, and their other models, are produced in Mexico.
What size would you recommend for a 12 year old?
The recommended size for a 12 year old in the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150MT is an 11"-11.50".
What makes this glove so good?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: (1150MT) uses special aged antique tobacco leather and has been individually hand-cut and sewn. Each glove is unique and unstructured. The leather quality is very high, and it will be a long lasting glove.
Is this a good glove for a 13 year old utility player?
Yes, the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150MT) would be a great glove for a 13 year old utility player.
What size do you recommend for 10 yr old?
I would recommend an 11.50" pattern for 10 year old. The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150MT) would be a very appropriate fit.
Is this a good glove for my 12 year old? He plays short, 3rd, and is a pitcher.
The 11.50" pattern size, combined with the Modified T-Web, makes this Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150MT) a good choice for a 12 year old who plays those positions.
What is the best size glove for a 6 year old?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150MT) may be too large at 11.50". A better size would be 10"-10.50".
What is a flexible infield glove?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150MT) will feature a more game ready or flexible feel out of the box and should be like what you are looking for.
Would you recommend a Shoeless Joe glove for my 12 year old that plays 2nd, outfield, and pitches? What size should he get? I need one that he can use for a few years.
Based on his age and positions played, we recommend an 11.50" pattern. The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150MT) is an excellent option for a player his age.
My 11 year old son uses the Shoeless Joe 32 inch catcher's mitt. He needs a fielders glove for pitching and maybe back-up at first base. Is this a good choice for us?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150MT) should work well for a player of that age at those positions.
Is this glove to large for an 8 year old? Should I have ordered the 1000JR instead?
I believe the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150MT) will be too large for an eight year old because it is an adult sized glove. For an eight year old we normally recommend a 10.50 inch glove so the Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series (1000JR Youth) might be too small for him.
I have a red, white and blue vintage baseball glove. It is a number 32 Field Master Hutch with PX Tanned leather (it also said "Jim Rodgers Top Grain Leather" on the little finger).
This sounds like a pretty cool option of glove that you have currently. This Shoelss Joe model has a pretty classic look, but not a red, white and blue color way like the glove you are describing. Did you have a question about this Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150MT)?
Although I'm not a huge Kevin Costner fan, I do love the movie "Field of Dreams". Was this glove modeled after one seen in the movie and would it be possible to have James Earl Jones autograph this glove?
I am not sure how Shoeless Joe came up with the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150MT. It is possible that they modeled it after the movie. Unfortunately we would not be able to have James Jones autograph the glove, but if you ran into him I'm sure he would be happy to help you out there.
My 7 year old son currently uses a Wilson A800 11.25" glove and I feel like the ball doesn't sit well in the pocket when he catches it. Would this one offer a deeper pocket?
This Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1150MT) will have an 11.50" length on it and the resulting pocket will allow a baseball to sit well in the glove. However, this Shoeless Joe has an adult fitting to it that will be a little large for a 7 year old hand. If you wanted a 11.50" length glove with more of an youth fitting to it I would recommend the Rawlings GG Gamer Youth Pro Taper Series (G115PTMT).
Does this glove come stiff and not game ready? I like them stiff, but was curious on how they come in.
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150MT will come pretty game ready, and will not require much break in at all. I would not consider this glove to be stiff.
Are there any gloves made in the USA?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150MT are made in Mexico. Nokona are the only ones still made in the USA that we will carry.
I am an adult with slightly larger than average sized hands. Would this glove fit me okay?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150MT is considered an adult glove, and it should fit you just fine.
Would this glove be appropriate for a 9 year old who plays both infield and outfield?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150MT would work in terms of overall glove size for a player at that age playing both infield and outfield, but the actual fit around the hand on this glove is designed for an adult. I would suggest checking out an 11.5" youth glove.
What's the weight of this glove?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150MT weighs 20 ounces or 570 grams.
Are these gloves American made?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150MT is made in Mexico.

(1) - First remove any existing dirt by wiping the glove with a clean, dry cloth. (2) - When clean, rub a small amount of conditioner into the leather with hands or clean cloth. (3) - Work it into the web, palm, laces, inside of the glove, & any other area that has become dry or is starting to crack. (4) - When finished, place your glove in a warm, dry area (70 - 90 F) & allow the leather to absorb the conditioner for 24 hrs.
