STEELO. 12 Custom Pro 11.5" Baseball Glove: ONEP12CAML1150I
The founder-owner of Steelo Gloves, Steve Friend, calls his glove company "The Dopest Movement in Baseball." This makes perfect sense when you understand that Steve finds his inspiration not only in baseball, but also in hip-hop and style as well. With those sources of inspiration, it doesn't take much to see that Steelo gloves are truly paving a way of their own in the baseball glove market. Steve is taking the experience of his professional baseball career and years of studying the glove market into consideration when his Steelo gloves are built. And because of that, he engraves the following statement on every Steelo glove: "The #1 Glove Made By Pro Players."
And for those of you out there who are wondering about the name "Steelo", you'll be intrigued to know that the term "steelo" has been used in hip-hop culture for years. It typically is used to refer to an individual's aura -or- the reason behind the manner in which they live or act. Grab one of these gloves, take you place on the diamond and you'll certainly feel your on-field steelo increase!
This 12 Custom Pro glove will be made with premium steerhide leather that is sourced from the United States. That leather should provide an excellent quality product that will hold up to the demands of even the most elite players. Supporting the steerhide is the double welting on the finger backs and the STIF-LYTE Finger Inserts that should give the glove great shape for many seasons!
The coolest features of this glove will be the 3D Advanced Pro Player Pocket Design & the STEELO-FLEX Technology. (1) The Pro Player Pocket Design ensures that the Steelo craftsmen are taking the utmost care when the leather is cut, stitched and formed into a glove shape. By being careful, they make certain that the pocket has the correct shape for a human hand (not the bowl shape seen on some other gloves; the bowl shape isn't natural to human hands). (2) The STEELO-FLEX tech ensures that the leather of the glove flexes correctly when the glove is closed. For Steelo, the correct closure of the glove is one that closely mimics how a human hand closes. STEELO-FLEX tech makes sure that the leather flexes to mimic a human hand closing.
Lastly, this glove will work really well for middle infielders (2B & SS) as the 1-piece, closed web and 11.5" length should be conducive for completing glove flips & quick exchanges needed at those positions. That being said, you could also take the glove over to 3B as well! And if you really wanted, you could use it up to the pitcher's mound too!
Steelo is one of the newer glove companies out there, but they understand the need to care for their customers! Because of that, they extend a twelve (12) month manufacturer’s warranty period on all of their gloves. If you are experiencing issues with your Steelo glove before 12 months have lapsed from the purchase date, please contact the JustGloves Glove Experts. They understand the warranty processes for glove manufacturers and will be able to help you get in contact with Steelo to organize the warranty replacement process.

About the Brand
In 2013, a baseball glove company was just a thought in the mind of Steve Friend. But Steve, the founder of STEELO, wouldn't let the thought die. He was dedicated to ballglove research and he provided grit & determination to the production process. His thought became reality.
Glove samples were being made in 2016 and a small launch was made the following year. As the gloves started proving themselves on the diamond, ballplayers took notice and 2018 ushered in the signing of some professionals to STEELO contracts. And in 2019, a STEELO glove was worn during a Major League Baseball game. That made STEELO the first black-owned ballglove brand to be worn at baseball's highest level.
STEELO's story won't stop there! Steve Friend calls STEELO "The Dopest Movement In Baseball" and STEELO isn't settling in as being "just another baseball brand". You see, the term "steelo" has been used for years within hip-hop culture to describe an individual's aura -or- the reason for why they act or live in a certain way. And Steve is determined for STEELO to exude that hip-hop culture that inspired his company's name. Along with hip-hop, fashion and baseball are Steve's 2 other inspirations for STEELO. With these 3 sources feeding the direction of the company, one can believe that STEELO is looking to take the baseball sporting goods market to a new and different realm!
While STEELO is changing up the baseball market, be sure to get one of their products, take it out to the diamond and increase your ballfield steelo...
