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 (1250 MT). 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. Questions?

add_circle_outlinePros: Feels fantastic and is going to be awesome when it is fully broken in. Looks a little small but fits my had perfect.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Not as broken in as described by others. Probably more broken in out of the box then most gloves but when I compare it to my infield glove with a year on it, it is not even close to game ready.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Leather is cheap. I bought liking the looks of the glove expecting an alright glove for $170, was wamped out after about 25 summer league games. If your looking for a classic look spend an extra 40 and get a Nokona classic walnut and you will have a real glove.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Got the glove and it was stiff as a board. Not broken in whatsoever. Probably more of a reflection on the company than the glove itself, same experience as another glove they sent me. Literally looked like someone just threw a big splash of glove oil on it and threw it in a box for shipping. The leather does not seem to be the same quality as in the past. Big disappointment.
add_circle_outlinePros: Looks great and leather is nice soft. Not as broken in as some reviews stated, but seems like it would be easy to break in.
remove_circle_outlineCons: The fur pad on the wrist was torn when I got it. Have to send it back and won't have the new one in time for the season to start. Also the fingers were extremely tight and difficult to get loosened up. I'll update this review when I get my replacement, but very disappointed.
add_circle_outlinePros: I have the 12.5" Modified Trap and if you play outfield, this glove is nice. The webbing is designed to trap any catch. Multiple seasons with this glove in the outfield and I have yet to have any throw or hit escape the glove, even when I have to dive. The leather is soft and as I read complaints that the leather 'feels' cheap, its not. It is high quality leather its ready to go right out of the bag, no need to oil or to use any break in method. Game ready. And it has extra padding in the palm to reduce any sting. ShoelessJoe also has a Glove reconditioning program you can ask about. This a must for an outfielder and it will do great if you are a utility player.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Been using the glove for 3 seasons and havent found a con yet. If you are exclusively an infielder, you might want to go with a smaller glove.
Where are the gloves made? And their website has no contact info.?
I believe their gloves are produced in Mexico. Unfortunately, we have very limited contact information for this company. However, if you have any questions about the products you may contact us at 866.321.4568.
What is the difference between sjmt and sjtt?
The webbing. The SJMT has a Modified Trapeze web and the SJTT has a different style of webbing called the Tennessee Trapeze web.
My 13 yr. old plays 3rd base, outfield, and pitches. Would the SJMT1250 be a good all-around glove to use through high school?
A 12.5 inch glove would be a great size for a utility player in high school. That's the size I would want if I were playing multiple positions.
I'm an adult with fairly large hand and need a new glove to play catch with my 12 year old little league son. Would the 12.5 model likely fit my hand?
Yes, this glove would most likely fit your hand. This glove doe shave a bigger than usual hand stall and is meant for bigger hands.
What are the golden age gloves like compared to the professional series? Do you have any?
The Golden Age Series were replica models designed similarly to gloves used by the pros in the 1910s, 1920s, 1930s, etc. The Professional Series are not replica gloves and are designed to be used in games or just recreationally. The Golden Age gloves are no longer in stock.
My 16 year old plays first base and pitches. He needs a size 19 cleat and a 13 or bigger fist base glove and pitching glove.
Well, there are plenty of 13 inch firstbase mitts and gloves that we sell. They come in a wide range of prices and quality. If you'd like some specific recommendations, feel free to give us a call at 1-866-321-4568. Unfortunately, we do not carry cleats.
I wanted to know if this glove can be used to play outfield in softball?
Yes, this glove could be used in the outfield in softball.
I'm a senior joining a senior softball league. I play infield and some outfield. Would this glove be ok for those positions?
I think you would be fine using this glove in a senior league softball.
Would this make a good fastpitch glove for an infielder? I see there is a deep pocket.
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1250MT is a baseball glove but it would work for someone playing infield in fastpitch softball. Here is a link to take a look at some other options that would work for infield play in fastpitch softball.
What color does this ball glove come in?
The Shoeless Joe 1250MT comes in the brown color as pictured on the website.
Would this glove be good for a utility player, or better fit for just outfield? And also, is there a large difference in performance between the web patterns, such as the single bar and the modified trap?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: 1250MT would be a good glove for utility. There is a lot of personal preference with web types and you won't see a performance difference between a single bar or modified trap. Modified trap web are preferred a lot by outfielders but can also work for infield.
Can I fit two fingers in the pinky stall?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series: (1250MT) incorporates four finger stalls and a stall to provide stability for the thumb. However, the pinky stall will be a little bit wider. Therefore, more than likely, depending on the size of your fingers, two fingers should be able to fit in comfortably.
Does this glove have extra padding in the palm, and how does it compare to the Wilson A2000?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1250MT) will not have any additional padding technology in the palm. Regarding the comparison to an A2000, the A2000 Series definitely offers a stiffer feel out of the box and are constructed from a higher quality leather. The Shoeless Joe models has a game ready feel, but are still made of good quality leather.
Where do I and how do I measure to get the 12.50" reading?
Fielders gloves, like the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1250MT), and first base mitts are measured by starting at the top of the index finger of the glove, down the finger along the inside of the pocket and then out to the heel of the glove. A flexible tape measure has to be used, not a stiff ruler. Measure from the highest point on the glove (normally the index finger). Lay the tape measure across the palm of the glove, so that it folds across and into the indenture, down to the heel of the glove.
Would this be the right size for a 9 year old?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1250MT) would be too big for a 9 year old. I would recommend using an 11.00" Youth model glove.
I am almost 6 foot 2 and have a very large hand. Would this glove fit me?
The Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1250MT) is an adult style glove that fits most adult hands. It may take some breaking in to get it to form to your hand but should work well.
