  • Nokona Gloves

    Does anyone have any opinions on Nokona gloves? I'm specifically interested in the Buffalo leather. I like a stiff glove, so I'm wondering if the buffalo leather will hold its shape over a full season?

    Thanks in advance.

        Errr, I don't understand how poop became a part of the conversation, but whatever.

        Back to Nokona gloves. A local shop had a Kangaroo glove. I have to admit, I didn't like it, it was kind of "floppy". If you like a glove that feels broken-in, you'll probably love it. I like a stiffer glove. Maybe Nokona's Walnut leather is better? From the Nokona web-site it looks like the Walnut is not oil-treated. Anyone have any information on the Walnut leather?

              Well, allow me to explain. Nokona sounds Japanese to me. Since baseball is the American past time, I am discouraged to see players using foreign gloves.

                        I used Wilson's growing up and swore I'd never change. Then when I got to college, a teamate of mine had a Nokona and I loved it. My last two gloves have been Nakona's and I don't plan on ever buying another brand.
                        (Of course I'm a pitcher and my glove was never as important to me as it would be to say a shortstop.)

                          ElCaminoSS is correct, I know of no other glove manufacturer that still makes their gloves in the United States, except Nokona. They've been making the gloves in Nocona Texas since the 1930's. That dedication to keeping their workface in the United States, in the face of globalization, is why I am so interested in buying one of their gloves. That and because they appear to be high-quality gloves.

                          Of course if their gloves are no good, I don't care where they make them. But from everything I've read, their gloves look to be very high-quality. If I do buy a Nokona, I'll give everyone my honest opinion about it.

                              Yes, I know they are American made. But they are probably made by a Japanese company.
