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: came broke in. seems small but plays very well.deep pocket.looks realy cool,old beat up kinda.seems like alittle old school.just a dad with boy who throws hard and it just keeps getting better.replaced a mizuno 1201 really nice glove for the price.
remove_circle_outlineCons: cannot find out what kind of oil they used. emaild but no response. seems like saddle soap smell funny.other than that great glove
add_circle_outlinePros: I have had my 12in. shoeless joe glove for about 4 weeks now, I oiled it one good time and it looks and feels better each time I use it. I have owned a few high end gloves ($200-$350) and they have nothing on the 12in shoeless joe glove. For $150 it's the best deal in Baseball.
add_circle_outlinePros: the PERFECT glove for anyone. i got this glove to use in outfield and i thought that i could only use it in outfield.... it is actually good for any position. broken in, smells awesome, and the best glove for anyone. Get this glove now!
add_circle_outlinePros: This is the best glove I have ever owned. I played baseball for 13 years and wish the Shoeless Joe glove was available during that time. This is a unique glove that fits your hand the way it should. The aged leather is a great speaking piece. Use it right out of the box... you won't be sorry you bought it!
remove_circle_outlineCons: The only con is that if you don't own one of these gloves, you need to invest!
add_circle_outlinePros: Easy break in (already half way there when you first put it on!). Great look (old school). Everyone asks about it (Shoeless what?). Deep pocket.
remove_circle_outlineCons: I get a bit of sting if my index finger isn't out of the glove (so it could do with a little more padding). Funky smell (I'm sure it's normal but I'm not much of a fan but the glove is so freakin good so I don't mind). Even with these little pet peeves it is still a 5 star glove. For $160 it is a steel!
add_circle_outlinePros: Out of the box, this glove was soft and ready to go with one game of catch, a coat of oil, and a night wrapped with the big ball from the care kit. It feels rich and soft, but catch the ball in the pocket cause there isn't much padding.
add_circle_outlinePros: Ready to use day 1. Old school glove smell.Calms me down when I pitch. This is my 2nd shoeless joe. I have the 1125 cw and now the 1150 mt. I ordered the 1200 BW but it was too big and the company sent me a new one quickly. I stole the show last Saturday at short.
add_circle_outlinePros: We bought this glove for our son on Christmas and it was by far the best purchase we made. The glove is high quality. The leather is fantastic.It requires some work to break in but that is what you want in a glove. It is going to be HIS once the break in is complete. He absolutely loves it. It is a head turner for sure on the field. Performance is great. I'm confident this will last a lifetime. Worth every penny.
add_circle_outlinePros: I just bought this glove and I already love it. It feels nice to wear it offers good protection and has a good pocket. I feel like a MLB player when I wear the glove. I love the look, smell, and feel. Great glove for any player at any position.
remove_circle_outlineCons: the only slight problem is that when I close the glove the leather kind of pinches my palm but that could be a result of the way I broke it in.
add_circle_outlinePros: good apperance ,this is my first glove. I searched at least 30 kind of other glove. I think this shoeless joe looks better. pure tobacco leather cool
remove_circle_outlineCons: my glove is a little different between the pitcture which shown in website. as you see there are numbers of metal rings. the bottom of the inner side of my glove is consist of some holes rather than metal rings. maybe my shoeless joe 1200BW is new version i
add_circle_outlinePros: great vintage look, supple leather looks already broken in
remove_circle_outlineCons: the entire glove feels kinda greasy and tacky with whatever oil is coating the leather. it actually makes it hard to get my hand in the glove because it is so sticky. feel like i need to wash my hands every time i handle it. has an overpowering funky chemical smell - different than my rawlings heart of the hide or my nakona.
Do you think this glove will be ok in slowpitch softball if I play 2nd base?
I think it would be. Generally, a 12 to 12.5 inch glove is preferred for 2nd base in slowpitch softball.
Are there any Shoeless youth gloves?
Unfortunately, there are no Shoeless Joe gloves specifically designed for a youth player.
Will this model work for a 9 year old youth?
This glove will probably be to big for a nine year old. The hand stalls and finger stalls would be to big. I would recommend looking under the youth gloves that we do carry. Those gloves are going to have smaller hand and finger stalls.
I like the Shoeless Joe glove. What would be the best model for a 13 yr. old playing outfield, lefty thrower?
This would be a perfect size for a 13 year old playing outfield
Can you use this glove in the outfield for middle or high school?
This glove would be great for outfield.
Would this be a good size for a 12 year old playing 3rd base, pitcher and center field? Very competitive player and team.
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200BW is a good glove for a 12 year old playing third base, pitcher, and outfield. Typically a third baseman would wear an 11.75" glove. However, since this is going to be used as a versatile glove between all three positions, I would say that this glove will work great as many pitchers and outfielders prefer a 12.00" model.
What country are the Shoeless Joe Gloves manufactured in?
Shoeless Joe Gloves are manufactured in Mexico.
Compared to a typical Rawlings, Wilson, or Mizuno is the size of this glove compatible, bigger or smaller?
The Rawlings, Wilson, Mizuno, and the Shoeless Joe gloves are all going to be comparable in size and quality.
My kid will be 15 years old this season, and would like to try out for the 9th grade high school team. He pitches, plays outfield, and occasionally infield. Would this be a good glove for him?
Yes, the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200BW will be a great utility glove to use in all of these positions.
I have twin 12 year old boys. Is this 12" too big? Or can I get the same glove smaller, say 11.5 or 11.75?
Much depends on what position(s) they play. I recommend our Glove Coach. It's a great tool: http://www.ballglovewarehouse.com/glove-coach/
My son currently uses a Rawlings SL12XTCB 12" glove. He is a big eight year old kid. Would this glove be similar in size to what he is playing with now?
Yes, the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200BW is a 12" model. It will be very similar in size.
Looking for a fastpitch infielders glove for a 14 year old girl. What glove would you recommend?
Based on her age and position we recommend a 11.75" glove such as the Shoeless Joe Shoeless Jane Fastpitch Series: 1175FPHW.
I have a 14 year old son that plays competitive baseball who is 5' 11' and 185 lbs. He plays third base. I'm a little confused on whether to get him a 11, 11.5 or 12" glove. Also, I've never heard of Shoeless Joe gloves. Are they a stable company and is this glove on the quality of an A2000? I'm comparing those two.
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200BW is a high quality glove and Shoeless Joe is a stable, reputable company. The A2000 Series are high quality, durable gloves that will require an extensive break-in period, while the Shoeless Joe will be game ready right away. We recommend an 11.50" for a 14 year old third baseman, such as the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150HW.
What is the difference between the Shoeless Joe 1200BW and the 1200VL?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200BW) will have a basket web, while the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200VL) will have a reinforced closed web. Both gloves will feature the 12.00 inch pattern as well as the same hand-rubbed antique tobacco leather.
Looking for a fast pitch outfielder glove for a 13 year old girl. What do you suggest? Is Shoeless Joe the best brand to go with?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200BW) is actually designed for baseball players with larger finger-stalls and a larger hand-opening. The fast pitch model will be the Shoeless Joe Shoeless Jane Fastpitch Series (1200FPBW). Additionally, you could consider the Nokona Walnut Series (AMG175X) or the Wilson A2000 Series (WTA20RF15CAT Fastpitch).
I am a utility player who plays most positions including pitcher 3rd and outfield. Will this work for these positions in high school?
Given its 12.00" pattern, the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200BW) would be a great glove for a utility player such as yourself.
Is this a good size for a 13 year old? He plays 3B, SS, CF, and P.
At 12.00", the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200BW would a solid option for a player who plays both infield and outfield.
Would this size fit a 23 year old man? How can I find out my size?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200BW is a 12.00 inch pattern that can certainly be a good fit for a person who is 23. As for looking into your sizing chart, please look into the following glove coach link: http://www.justballgloves.com/glove-coach/
Would you recommend this glove for a college pitcher on a budget?
If you like the look of retro gloves, the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200BW would work for you.
does this model have the xrd impact absorption?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200BW) does not have the New XRD Extreme Impact Protection Technology.
I have purchased two gloves off you guys so far. I am looking for a glove for my 12-year-old son. What glove do you guys recommend?
The correct size to get a 12 year old player will vary depending on what position(s) the player plays. The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200BW is an adult glove best suited for a pitcher. Could also be used at 3B for a bigger player; when I say bigger I would say someone who is 6'2" or taller. A better option might be the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150SF; this model is better suited for an infielder.
Playing in a vintage men's hardball league 35+, I'm a left handed pitcher and outfielder. Will this serve me well for both positions?
Yes, this glove is a good size for use in both the outfield and pitcher position.
What glove size would you recommend for a ten year old that plays pitcher,3rd, and center field?
A 10 year that plays center, third and pitches would be most suitable for a 11.75'' or a 12''. The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200BW might be a bit large fitting on the hand of a 10 year old.

(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.
