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.

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.

add_circle_outlinePros: I bought this glove last year at the msbl world series trade show, and I every time I wear this glove, people want to try it on, and they ask where I got it. This glove is sold game-ready, no breaking-in necessary. The best glove ever, and for a good price. You will not be unsatisfied!!
add_circle_outlinePros: i just got this glove and right away it is broken in you don"t need to put that much work into it. it feels realy good and the leather is very soft. the store asstient told me that they last very long longer than nokona overall best glove ever
add_circle_outlinePros: Bought this glove for my 14 yr old after his Worth glove starting stinking to high heck. Came to us greased and ready to go. Did not have to go through the whole breaking in process. Ready to go out of the box. Sweet glove, very well made and does not stink. Shoeless Joe? What a great name for a glove.
add_circle_outlinePros: Got this glove yesterday and already broken in! soft comfortable leather! Quality made glove, Fits perfect to my hand. Put a little oil it today and had a catch for a little bit today. That pretty much fully broke in my glove. Beatuiful glove and love it already! Best i have had
add_circle_outlinePros: I've got guys who choose to use high end gloves; for example: Rawlings 125th Anniversary model, or/and Wilson's 1786 'game ready'. That said, I have one guy who prefers this glove over others. Personally, I was not familiar with Shoeless Joe mitts. Bottom line, the price difference does not equate to the difference in quality. Good job Joe!
remove_circle_outlineCons: You may never see it in the hand of a Gold Glover.
add_circle_outlinePros: This glove is amazing straight out of the box! Only took a few days for it to be fully broken in. I play outfield and 1st base and I use it for both positions. It forms an amazing pocket so is great for both positions even though it is not a first base mitt. It also smells amazing and is made out of amazing materials. I for see that this mitt will last a very long time for me.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Only thing I have found so far is that the glove is for really big hands. I actually had to add in two extra holes in the wrist area for the mitt to fit tight enough so my hand wouldn't slip around. otherwise this is an amazing glove!
add_circle_outlinePros: Good Quality, & very good desk support. Excellent shipping & return service.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Glove was a little small for my son's hand (14 year old a Freshman in highschool ) His palm didn't quite fit far enough up in his glove. Ordered another brand of glove, fixed issue.
add_circle_outlinePros: Player ready right out if the box! We just completed Spring and Summer ball, with the new Shoeless Joe. My son loves this glove. Glove arrived and my son took it to practice same day. Glove performed well catching fly balls and grounders. Looks great, performs excellent after four months of extensive travel play. A few teammates are picking up a SJ also. Worth every penny......
How is the weight of the glove? How soft is the leather on the Shoeless Joe vs Louisville? I bought my daughter a Louisville Valkyre glove last season and by her summer league, the glove became very soft.
Based on reputation and design the Shoeless Joe gloves will have a softer and lighter feel. The construction of this model includes specific ingredients to soften the leather and a special break-in during production to give it that "game-worn" look and feel.
Is the SJV1200 a softball or baseball glove? I play softball fastpitch, 2nd base.
It can be used in either fastpitch softball or baseball. There is nothing that restricts it from being used in either. It should be a good option for you.
When will the SJV1200 have right handed thrower models?
We only show what we have in stock. As soon as we get the right hand thrower model back in stock, the option for the glove will be back up on our website.
Is the Shoeless Joe SJV1200 glove appropriate for slow pitch softball?
If you use this glove in slow pitch softball, I would recommend using it as an infield. I think it would be a little too small to use in the outfield, but I have seen multiple slow pitch softball players use a 12 inch glove in the outfield.
Is this glove appropriate for an 11 y/o outfielder?
I would recommend a smaller glove for an 11 year old. Most outfield players in high school and college use a glove that is 12.00-12.50 inches. I would recommend an 11.00-11.50 for someone that is 11 years old.
Is it a good glove for third base. Is it durable?
This will be a durable glove for someone to use for 3rd base. It will have a little less padding than most other gloves in this price range, but that is the way that Shoeless Joe gloves are made.
Is this gloves pocket as good as the basket web?
That depends on your preferrence, but this will be similar to a basket web. I wouldn't say one is better than the other.
My 10 year old son is an infielder. I am looking for the best recommendation, but I would like to buy a glove that is the right fit for him for 4 years or so. What do you recommend for a 10-13 year old?
The 1200VL is an adult model and is going to be too big for a 10-13 year old. I would look at the youth model glove in the same size.
Where are the Shoeless Joe gloves made? Is this glove good for shortstops and second basemen?
Shoeless Joe gloves are made in Mexico. At 12", the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200VL is larger than average for a middle infielder. However, if you prefer a larger than average glove for the infield, this would be a good option.
I am looking for a glove for my 17 year old son who is a right handed high school pitcher. Is this the right model or what would you recommend? He is 6'3" tall with average to slightly larger than average hands.
Based on his age and position we recommend a 12.00" glove like the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200VL. It is slightly larger than most infield gloves, perfect for a player with larger hands.
My daughter is 14 and is playing high school fastpitch. She has mostly played outfield but is now playing SS and 2B. What gloves do you suggest to fit a smaller hand?
I would suggest going with either an 11.75" or 12.00" Female Fastpitch glove.
Would this be a good outfield glove for an 8 yr old that plays every weekend? If not what is a good glove that will last and not be too hard to break in.
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200VL is a 12" model. It might be a bit too big for a 8 year old. We suggest the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1125CW. It would break-in rather easy and may fit a lot better.
Is this a softball glove?
At 12.00", the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200VL would be too small for softball.
Would the glove fit a 13 year old outfielder?
This would be a player preference. The Shoeless Joe Professional Series is a 12" pitcher utility model. Typically outfielders prefer 12.5" to 12.75".
Would the glove fit the hand of a 13 year old outfielder?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200VL would be a great fit for a 13 year old outfielder.
My son will be 13/14 during the playing season. He pitches and plays shortstop. Would the 1200VL be a good fit for him?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200VL is best suited for a utility player. We recommend a 11.25" glove. The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1125CW would be a great option for him.
I have a son going into ninth grade. He pitches, plays third base, second base, and right field. Would this glove be a good fit? If so what size?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200VL) is an excellent glove for a utility player. The suggested glove size for a ninth grade utility player is a 12" model.
I'm looking for a good fast pitch softball glove for my 7 year old daughter. Do you have any recommendations?
The Worth Storm FPEX Series: (FPX100PN) would be a great choice to take a look at. Based off of her age, we would suggest looking at gloves with a 10 inch pattern. This model will have a game-ready feel, and will be extremely lightweight. It will also be durable, and is perfect for young players.
I am a 17 year old high school pitcher and prefer smaller gloves. What would be a good size to use if I plan on pitching in college?
Most college pitchers use around a 11"-12" gloves. The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200VL) is going to be a good option to look at for the pitcher position.
Will this glove be ideal for men's slow pitch softball 2nd base and shortstop? A previous post said this glove is too small for softball but most experts recommend 12-13" for infield in slow pitch softball. Why would it be too small?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200VL) should be fine for those positions. The 12 inch design would probably be a bit small for outfield play but should be okay for middle infield.
Would this glove be a good fit for an 18 year old utility player that could play middle infield, outfield, and pitch without having to get another glove or switch when changing positions?
The 12 inch design of the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200VL) is one of the most common sizes for a utility player to use and the closed web style could cover all those positions. It would be a good all around glove for those positions.
Would this model be good for a 13 year old outfielder-3rd?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200VL) is a good glove for outfield and third base. It is a game ready glove and requires very little break in time.
I am looking for an all around glove for my son. He is 15 years old and playing high school baseball. Is this glove what I am looking for?
The 12 inch size of the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200VL) is commonly used for utility style play. It can work for most fielder positions.
How long will this glove last a high school player?
With proper care (storage, oiling, frequent use, etc...), the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200VL) should be able to be used for multiple seasons by a high school player!
My daughter is 8 and has used a 12 inch Mizuno. Would you recommend this for her even though it is more for baseball? If not, I want a high quality 12 inch glove for her. What would you recommend. She is very comfortable with a 12 inch model at her age.
The Shoeless Joe Shoeless Jane Fastpitch Series (1200FPBW) would potentially be a better fit as it is more fit for a female hand and the pocket is more designed for softball play than on the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200VL).
My son is 11 and is wanting an outfielders glove for Christmas. What size would be best for him and would you recommend one of your gloves for me?
A 12 inch glove like the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1200VL) would be a good size for an outfielder's model at that age.
What glove do you recommend for a 12-year-old second baseman/pitcher?
Based off the information you've provided, I would consider looking at gloves with a 11.50" web pattern. I think the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1200VL might be too big for him on the infield. However, the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1150MT would work well for second base and the modified T-Web will hide the baseball when your player is on the mound.
My son is 15 and 6'3". His hands are quite large. Will these work for him? Also, he is a right fielder and pitcher, so what size should I get?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series Baseball Glove: 1200VL is better designed for a pitcher. If seeking a glove to use for both pitching and OF a better option would be the Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1250TT.
