How do we know that it is good leather? Everyone says they have top of the line leather.
Generally with gloves the price point is the best indicator of the leather quality. The higher the price, the higher quality leather. Keep in mind the higher quality leather you purchase, the longer it will take to break-in.
Kyle J.
How long has this glove been available and does Javier Baez actually use this glove?
We received this model in the fall of 2017. Baez does use this same model of glove, but no necessarily the same color scheme.
