My sons first glove was a walMart special that was one of those fake leather gloves. For some of you it was like the same material they use to make fake leather disco cloth out of. It never got broken in and after the first season I got him a leather glove. I am to old to remember so don't ask me the model #. Buy a leather glove is my only opinion. Or http://www.akademapro.com/rookie.html
This company makes a good youth model glove and they fall in between price wise. They are easy to break in, extra soft leather. If you Google the model number and make of the glove you can find them cheaper on the net. Besides the disco glove I first bought after that experience, I went cheap leather one other time and finally learned my lesson, from than on I bought my son nothing but akadema gloves. Good product and not over the top price wise. Plus my son likes there glove/mitts.
I got my son a new glove each time he moved up a level in little league, coach pitch to minor and than majors now Junior Little league and (American legion ball maybe if he wants that much baseball this summer) and JV HS baseball, he now plays catcher and the price of baseball went up last fall ball season with new catcher mitt/equipment metal cleats, -3 bat and new infield glove, new catcher bag(No Errors E2 Equipment Bag) to carry all the equipment, helmet, sliding short, batting gloves, practice pants, ice packs etc.
good memories, more to come,

Yogi Berra was asked by a reporter "How do you catch a knuckle ball?" He came right back and said "When it stops rolling"
