Glove sizing can vary from brand to brand and even within the same brand. Glove sizing can vary depending on the cut and specific fit of the glove.

The majority of goalkeeper gloves that we sell use very high quality latex palms and materials, sourced and manufactured to offer the best possible grip in all conditions. Latex is a very soft, natural product and as such is subject to wear and abrasion over time. Just Keepers Ltd and the selected brands that supply the products cannot be held accountable for wear to the palms.
Prior to use:
- Rinse the gloves thoroughly prior to first use with clean lukewarm water, this process helps rid the gloves of any impurities from the production of the latex or stitching process.
- Please note that it may be advisable to wash the gloves more than once for maximum performance.
- After use wash the gloves with a recommended glove wash or a mild detergent to remove any dirt from the palms and allow glove to dry naturally.
- DO NOT DRY USING ANY OF THE FOLLOWING PROCESSES: Radiator, hair dryer, airing cupboard, tumble dryer or direct sunlight.
Most latex palms will begin to show signs of wear within their first use. This is normal and can be down to many factors that may include: many variables of play e.g. (the age of goalkeeper, their technique, the playing surface, how the gloves were prepared, were the care instructions followed).
Wear to the foams usually happens when the gloves come into contact with the ground, but they can also wear from something as simple as pulling your socks up, even when putting your gloves on as most gloves use a course Velcro closure which can be prone to wearing the latex.
If your latex starts to show signs of wear, don’t worry! Glove wear is normal, that’s just what latex does, latex is a soft natural product which is made to provide the grip that all goalkeepers need and want!
Please note that all goalkeeper gloves will offer grip and continue to perform until there is virtually no latex left on the palms.
Deterioration will be particularly apparent during early and end of season use when the grounds are at their hardest. Do try to avoid glove contact with the ground if at all possible!
Young and inexperienced goalkeepers may also notice fast deterioration of the foam; this will become less apparent when the individual technique improves.
As per our foam palms guide the same applies to the above styles:
The majority of gloves we sell are worn by the World’s best goalkeepers who play on the best surfaces with the best quality footballs, most of whom use the gloves for a maximum of 6-8 games. If this is a concern please choose an alternative flat palm style.
If this is a concern please choose harder wearing palms (not soft latex), which may offer better durability, however please be aware that the grip will be much inferior.
We would always advise using new gloves just for matches and use an older pair for training/warm up.
The colouring on the majority of goalkeeper gloves will fade and wear during play, this can and does happen and this will not affect the performance of the product in any way.
Goalkeeper gloves are made and designed for use on soft natural surfaces like grass, unless specified in the product description (e.g. specialist 3G /astro turf palm)
Please note that when using goalkeeper gloves on an artificial surface such as 3G or astro turf – you will be placing a higher level of stress on them and wear will be more apparent than on grass.
ROLL FINGER & NEGATIVE CUT STYLE FOAM PALMS:
With both of the above glove cuts being very popular and sought after styles we must warn you that the stitched seams and fingers do come under immense stress during the course of training and match-play and Just Keepers Ltd will not offer replacements or refunds for burst seams and damaged foam around the stress areas. Gloves featuring a ‘Negative Cut’ palm will show wear on the fingertips and thumbs quicker than others, this is due to the way the gloves are stitched.
Great care should be taken when putting the gloves on and taking them off, especially roll finger styles, try and remove your hand from the gloves and not the gloves from the hand, try to put as little stress as possible on the seams, fingers and thumbs when taking your hand from your gloves.
IF ANY OF THE ABOVE IS A CONCERN PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE THE GLOVES OR CONTACT US PRIOR TO PURCHASE AND WE CAN HELP YOU FURTHER
- Gloves should be washed and slightly moistened before use with luke warm water.
- Use NO cleaning agents or brushes.
- DO NOT machine wash.
- Wash by hand at 30c
- DO NOT tumble dry
- Leave to dry at room temperature, DO NOT place close or on a radiator or other heat sources.
adidas only use the finest high-grip foams for our palms of our performance goalkeeper gloves. The foam used is extremely soft and provides excellent grip in all conditions. Because of the softness and grip, the palms of these gloves are subject to wear. Therefore, adidas cannot be responsible for abrasion that results from normal wear or damage caused from use.

Hockey Goalie Gloves, Pro Stock, NHL Ice Hockey Goalie Gloves
Pro Stock Goalie Gloves
When it comes to hockey gloves, goalies get more choices than any other players. Making the right choices for ice hockey goalie gloves is even more important. Poorly sized or too stiff of a catching gloves means missed saves and lost games. Here’s a quick rundown of what matters:
What’s the most important thing about hockey goalie gloves? That the user can close it all the way. Too often, young and casual goalies opt for larger gloves, believing that more surface area means more catches over time. The truth is, these oversized gloves present several problems: First, the glove may be too heavy, meaning slower reaction time. Second, it may not fit around the wrist properly, meaning it could come loose when you try to catch a clapper. Third — and most importantly — it won’t close all the way.
So how do you find the right fit? It starts with glove sizing: Make sure the finger stalls are no more than a ½ inch beyond the tips of your fingers. Next, tighten the wrist straps and try to close the glove all the way. If you’re “close-but-not-quite”, it may be possible to “break in” the glove by heating it in a convection oven or using a hairdryer to help achieve the ideal shape. If there’s still a large gap in the catching glove no matter how hard you work it in, it’s not the right glove for you.
OTHER FEATURES TO LOOK FOR IN OUR HOCKEY GOALIE GLOVES FOR SALE
In addition to size, there are three other features to consider when buying a goalie glove:
- The Break:
This describes how goalie gloves fold to catch pucks. Some goalies prefer a higher break, such as 90 degrees, which has the tips of the fingers come to the palm of the hand. Most NHL goalies opt for around 60 degrees, meaning the tips of your fingers come to the top of your thumb.
- Blocking Cuff:
Cuffs can be either one or two-piece. Going for one-piece gives you more predictable rebounds but less wrist control, while two-piece allows increased flexibility for quick movements.
- Pocket Type:
There are two pocket types: Single and Double T. Single T pockets let goalies feel the impact of the puck when caught, while Double T pockets are designed to stop puck rotation and prevent it from bouncing out.

9 Absolute Best Hockey Goalie Gloves 
For a hockey goalie, the glove is one of the most important pieces of equipment you’ll buy. There’s a number of things to consider before buying a new goalie glove, and we’ll take you through all of them.These are the best goalie gloves, or should we say, best hockey goalie gloves on the market this year. We’re huge fans of building a kit of gear that suits your playing style the best, regardless of what brand you’re wearing. When it comes to goalie gloves, hockey goalies must remember that catching the puck is one of the most important things you’ll do in making a save.
These gloves are not going to be the cheapest goalie gloves on the market. They’re the best gloves that money can buy. We’re talking about performance things like the best closing goalie gloves, easiest to use right out of the box, and more.
Here at Goalie Coaches, we take our reputation seriously.
We’ve trained hundreds of elite Division 1 and Professional goalies throughout the existence of our company and as a result, we’ve learned more about gear than most individuals on the planet.
Each summer during our annual camps throughout the United States and Canada, we field more gear questions than we know what to do with. When we get a question like this, we answer honestly and openly. If one of our camp goers needs more advice, we send them here to help make their decision easier.
Here are the best hockey goalie gloves for 2021.
The best hockey goalie glove money can buy is the CCM E Flex 5.
Before we jump into this article, I would like to point this out. These are not cheap gloves. We talk about two things here at Goalie Coaches. First and most importantly, the best of the best when it comes to equipment. We’re not paid by certain companies to say one thing or another. We’ll say what we want, where companies can improve, and where you should stay away.
The second thing is, we’re driven by quality. The stuff we talk about, regardless of price, is the stuff that we’ve used ourselves, or is used by our D1 and Professional clients. When we write goalie gear reviews, the single most important thing that sets us apart from anybody else is this fact. We put our money where our mouths are. If we do not own the gear, we buy it. If we cannot buy it, we use our network to get our hands on it before anybody else has.
Again, these are NOT the most budget friendly gloves available to goalies. These are the top of the line, best of the best hockey goalie gloves. Most, if not all, of these are currently worn in the NHL by pros who’re seeing faster shots than any of us will ever see.
What’s our pick this year?
Move over, Brian’s, the CCM E Flex 5 goalie glove is the best glove for goalies this season. Featuring a newly redesigned back of hand flex area, it’s one of the most comfortable goalie gloves we tested prior to writing this article.CCM E Flex 5
Our Best Glove This YearCCM E Flex 5 Glove
The top glove this year, CCM has done it again. The glove needs no introduction, if you want the highest performance goalie glove money can buy, get the all new E Flex 5 and quit asking questions.Get at Goalie Monkey Buy at Pure Goalie
We appreciate your support! At no extra cost to you, we may earn a small commission if you purchase a product through GoalieCoaches.com.The company released the CCM E Flex 5 lineup earlier in 2021. Along with it, we were introduced to the newly redesigned E Flex glove. One of the first things that jumps out to me about CCM over the past number of years, despite the fact that they lost a handful of pros, is the customization options they offer to goalies.
Bauer focused on the look of pads, opting for less customization, where as CCM went for customizing the internals. To be honest, customizing the internals to get the performance of your pads down pat is the better option.
Looks are one thing, performance is another. This glove is, from what we’ve discovered in our testing thus far, one of the highest performance goalie gloves we’ve tried in the past handful of years.
The company utilizes a newly designed internal molded cuff, a one piece cuff design (two piece is available for custom orders) to improve the overall closure of the glove. Whether or not it actually makes a difference is up to the user, I thought this glove closed extremely well myself.
The one thing to keep in mind is CCM has always had one of the top goalie gloves on the market. You know how they call tissue paper, “Kleenex”? Well, they should just call the 590 break the break at which every other goalie trapper on the market was modeled after. CCM makes a professional level glove year in and year out, so getting back to the top of our list wasn’t an issue.
In the photo we’ve linked here, we’re looking at the back area of this glove. Just looking at this area, without taking measurements, it looks like the company increased the distance between breaks, designed to make the glove close easier than ever before. They’re saying they modeled this after their pro clients feedback, some say it’s more of a marketing ploy, but it worked on me.
CCM is calling this the “Flex Motion Backhand”. Pretty catchy. Pun intended.
This glove is worth every penny and it’s our number one this year for good reason. If you’re customizing it, for optimal catching ability, get the double t pocket.Brian’s OPTIK 2
Best Overall Glove
Hands down, the Brian’s OPTIK 2 is the best goalie glove money can buy.
Without question, this glove is more versatile and fits more hands than any other competitor on the market today. While you might be surprised to see this glove at the top of my list with plenty of great options out there, I stand behind this decision.
Each piece of equipment that wears the Brian’s brand is handcrafted in Canada. The thing about “smaller” goalie brands is that they generally put more effort into creating the highest quality product. And so as a result you as the goalie benefits with a high quality product.
Overall though the Optik 2 glove is comfortable and is easy to close. It’s not the lightest glove on the market, but it’s also built to last. The palm is doesn’t collect and stingers with the game ready option and you really won’t feel a thing with the pro palm. You can also get the bulk palm but honestly at that point it’s going to be difficult to squeeze.
The thing that’s really cool about the Optik 2 goalie glove is that you can completely customize it. From colors to palm size to the new BOA strapping system or standard option. It offers complete range of customizability.
In my personal opinion, you can’t go wrong with this glove. I know a guy that has been using his Brian’s G-Netik 2 glove from years ago and it’s still running like a champ. They build them to last. (And no, we have zero affiliation with Brian’s, just like supporting companies like them).Warrior G5 Pro
Goalie Coaches Recommended
Let’s make one thing clear about Warrior’s goalie gloves.
While they’re not currently worn in the NHL, these gloves are a pro level glove that would absolutely perform at that level. In recent years, Warrior has focused solely on the youth and entry level ages of goaltending. And by youth, we do not just mean kids. We mean, anything up to the NHL level.
The Warrior G5 pro is no exception of their superior goalie equipment lineup. This glove is one of the lightest goalie trappers on the market, and it comes out of the box ready to play.
What makes this glove so intriguing is the CoverEdge Technology implemented into it. Essentially what CoverEdge does is adds a forward tilt to the glove. This cuts the angle of the puck to the net more-so than the coverage you would get in a standard hockey goalie glove.
It also creates a natural hand position for goalies to move around and stop pucks in.
What really makes this glove cool though is the removable palm liner, allowing for maximum customization of the angle your glove will be at. Your options are 60, 75 and 90 degrees. Stock is 75 degrees.
Bauer Supreme Ultrasonic
It should come as no surprise to many that the Ultrasonic gloves makes the top 5 hockey goalie glove list. It’s just too good not to put it up here.
While I can honestly say that I haven’t love the 2X and 2S gloves from Bauer in previous years, the Ultrasonic is pretty sweet. It closes very easily and has a natural hand fit.
The cuff is now only a single piece compared to previous Bauer gloves. Which prevents and negative movement in the wrist and cuff, allowing for a better squeeze on the puck.
The glove angle is 75 degrees which allows for you to catch pucks at or above your fingertips.
Bauer has also implemented what is called “Free Flex” on the backside of the glove. What it does is gives goalies better range of motion to catch anything thrown your way.
And lastly, this glove is very lightweight. Now, with that comes the risk of durability concerns. In my personal experience with Bauer gloves, they’re actually held up well. It’s the leg pads that usually have issues.
Lefevre L20.1Lefevre L20.1 Goalie Glove
A new goalie glove for 2020, the Lefevre L20.1 took the goalie community be storm. It’s a well built and customizable option for goalies this year.Pure Goalie Price
We appreciate your support! At no extra cost to you, we may earn a small commission if you purchase a product through GoalieCoaches.com.
The Lefevre L20.1 is a super popular glove amongst NHL goalies. This glove could easily be higher up on the list as well, but there isn’t a ton of information on this glove out there.
But there are some things that we do know about this glove. It’s the latest model and brand new for last season (2020) for one. We also know that it comes in a 580, 590 or 600 cuff break.
And we also know that Lefevre used to create goalie equipment for CCM. So if you’ve used any CCM in the past few years, you were likely using Lefevre made equipment.
So based on that, we also know that Lefevre creates high quality and durable equipment.
And lastly, we know that all of Lefevre’s equipment is custom and handmade. Which makes this gear just that much better. If you do decide to go Lefevre, you’re not going to be disappointed.
CCM Axis ProCCM Axis Glove
The CCM Axis goalie glove is designed for comfort. It close easily and comes in the standard 590 break.Pure Goalie Price Check Price on Goalie Monkey
We appreciate your support! At no extra cost to you, we may earn a small commission if you purchase a product through GoalieCoaches. com.CCM E Flex 4
As far as goalie gloves are concerned, CCM makes an incredible product. If you’re a first time goalie and have zero idea of which glove you should buy, get a CCM glove (any one) with a 590 break. It’s widely known and accepted as one of the most versatile breaks of all time. The 590 break is simply the way the glove closes, and it’s been adopted or modeled by virtually every other goalie glove on the market.
But, why aren’t you guys mentioning the CCM Axis Pro? That’s what makes us different than other gear review websites. And, to be clear, we’re not a gear review website. We care about you performing better on the ice, not getting paid a few bucks by CCM to tell you their Axis Pro is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
Truth be told, we haven’t used the CCM Axis Pro yet. Yes, you can buy it on both Goalie Monkey and Pure Goalie, but we’re still waiting on ours. Until we get a chance to extensively test it, or train one on one with somebody who has, we won’t be able to tell you whether or not it’s better than the E Flex 4.

5 Best Lacrosse Goalie Gloves for 2021
Lacrosse Goalie Glove Buying Guide
Beyond identifying some specific products, we like to provide you with the tools to find quality gear on your own should you choose a glove outside of this list.
Here are some elements to consider when looking for lacrosse goalie gloves.
It goes without saying that if you’re looking for gloves, this should be number one on your list of things to consider.
Protection is not just key to avoiding injury but giving a goalie the peace of mind that they are protected. That assuredness goes a long way in keeping a player’s focus on the field and not the dreaded “what ifs.”
There are some key areas to pay attention to when it comes to goalie glove protection, number one being the thumb. Most gloves on the market now have some form of molded plastic or similarly stiff but malleable material to reinforce the thumb’s position on the stick. This is extremely important to preventing hyper-extension injuries when it comes to saving that laser beam wind-up shot from the top of the box.
The back of the hand and knuckles are also major points to keep in mind. No one wants to take a ball off the glove, but they especially don’t want this if their glove lacks the added padding to their knuckles.
When it comes to being in goal, it’s not so much a question of if you get hit in the thumb or back of the hand but when. Even all the protection in the world may not prevent a broken digit as users of even the most expensive gloves on our list have pointed out. But, good it can help cut down on the frequency and possibility of such an injury.
2) Comfort & Flexibility
Here comes number two in what to consider—freedom of movement especially when it comes to the hands and wrists is an invaluable quality of a good goalie glove.
Some of the products on our list feature flexible protective padding that only hardens in response to contact giving your hand a bit more mobility and comfort. A snug fit also helps with promoting security during contact and as you move for a save or cock back for a clearing pass.
When it comes to the wrist, companies have been experimenting with adjustable cuffs and even “cuff-less” models. These provide a wider range of motion which is great for those goalies that like to be the ones touching off a fast break or helping out in a set clearance.
As with all protective gear, you want to find a glove that fits your natural movements with as little obstruction as possible but still meets your needs when it comes to protection.
Goalie gloves are a major investment so you want something that will last for multiple seasons and withstand a barrage of contact should need be.
Certain glove models have definitely thrown out the extra frills that can pop up on gloves, things like exterior moldings and snag points that can wear down or break with only a shot or two. It is worth looking into the durability of any extra thumb protection provided by a particular glove you are considering because some products seem built to guard against major contact only once.
A lot of the gloves we covered in our list are newer models so we are not quite aware of how these will stack up three or four seasons down the line. So, it is worth considering the durability and trustworthiness inherent to the usual output of the company you are purchasing a glove from. When in doubt, stick to the top lacrosse brands like STX, Maverik, and Warrior.
Do not overlook the breathability of goalie gloves when finding the best option for you. The last thing any goalie wants is to have their hands soaked in sweat as they try to control their stick on a clearance. It does not feel great and it does not play great either.
Back of hand ventilation is an element you should be looking for in a glove. Any form of tech that will keep the air flowing and recycled around your palms is a huge bonus.
Another major element is the moisture-wicking material. You want something that is breathable and keeps your hands as dry as can be for the most part, especially if you’re playing into the dog days of summer.
In addition to the material around your hand, look to the feel of the palm as well. The gloves above throw out some different types of palms, some sounding a lot more breathable than others. This may not be something you can wrap your brain around until you physically have the glove but is worth keeping in mind if you have the opportunity to try products on.
5) Customer Reviews
Customer reviews are the Holy Grail of our research and worth major consideration before you splurge on goalie gloves.
Do your due diligence and seek out every website and resource you can for some first-hand input on how any of the above four elements are for a given product. Other users can provide actual feedback to the fluffy sounding designs and paddings laid out in a glove’s product listing.
Additionally, reviews can be helpful in finding out any quirks to a glove’s fit or the buying process. Such feedback can be helpful in avoiding the pitfalls that may have ensnared other customers.
And don’t forget to leave your own review for whatever gloves you choose. It’s always good practice to pay it forward.
Find something that fits your budget…this is easier said than done when it comes to goalie gloves but still worthy of consideration.
Always keep in mind that if you’re cutting costs now, you’re likely giving up something in the future, whether it be the durability or extra protection of a more expensive glove. Pinpoint where exactly a product is saving you money and consider the implications of that cost-cutting to your safety and wallet in the long run.
A lot of gloves go on sale in the offseason if you are trying to save a few bucks. Alternatively, you can look for older models of elite gloves to save.
Best goalkeeper gloves 2021 – the definitive guide
Make sure you’ve got a safe pair of hands and check out the best goalkeeper gloves for 2021.
The life of a goalkeeper is a difficult one. Often remembered more for their mistakes than any heroics between the sticks, embarrassing howlers are every keeper’s worst nightmare. Just ask Loris Karius.
Concentration, positioning and lightning-quick reactions are essential for every goalkeeper on the planet, while it also helps if you’ve got height (and big hands) on your side. However, you also need to get hold of all the right equipment, since this makes sure you’re always comfortable and confident as the last line of defence. No more howlers for you.
Since they’re undoubtedly the most important item in your locker, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got the best goalkeeper gloves money can buy, since this could be the difference between becoming the next Gianluigi Buffon or, ahem, Massimo Taibi.
But, with so many gloves to choose from, how do you find the best ones?
How to Choose Your Goalkeeper Glove Cut
Before you start thinking about buying anything, you need to decide which goalkeeper gloves will be best for you. As well as an array of brands, materials and design features, you also need to choose between a growing number of cuts. In fact, this is probably the first thing you should do.
Each one of these goalkeeper glove cuts offers different advantages, drawbacks and fits, and every serious keeper will have their own personal preference here. Although there’s a huge range to choose from, there are three main types you need to worry about: flat cut, roll finger and negative cut goalkeeper gloves.
If you’re a casual player looking for a standard pair of gloves, then flat cut is probably the best way to go, while more serious, professional players tend to prefer negative cut. Roll finger is the ideal choice for anyone wanting to enhance handling and contact with the ball, though they do feel a little bulkier than the others.

What are Goalkeeper Gloves Made of?
The best goalkeeper gloves are typically made of a mixture of foam and latex. The quality of the palm will ultimately decide the overall quality of the gloves, since this will have a huge impact on grip, durability and control. Obviously, these three elements are crucial for every goalkeeper out there.
While the cut affects fit and comfort, the use of latex in the palms is all about improving performance and handling, available in varying thicknesses. Most gloves will also offer substantial padding on the fingers and backhand to improve protection, which is vital when punching the ball out and making saves.
However, it’s worth bearing in mind that latex palms aren’t the most durable option, so casual players wanting cheap goalkeeper gloves may be better off going for rubber palms instead.

The Supergrip HN (half-negative cut) is probably my pick of the bunch here. It’s a reasonably-priced glove which performs just as well as the more expensive models. The Reflex might have flashier features, but it’s also much tighter – meaning some will find it pretty damn uncomfortable at times.
Either way, the level of grip here is absolutely superb. You’ll be more Peter Parker than Peter Schmeichel in these, keeping a firm hold of fizzing shots and avoiding any unfortunate spills. Attempting to crawl up walls is not advised, though. Even the 3D Shockzone won’t save you there.

9. Puma Future Grip Hybrid
The Future is here – and it’s pretty darn sticky. After ditching the Nike Vapor Grip3 back in 2019, Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak has been rocking Puma’s Future gloves ever since. He’s really not half-bad between the sticks – so if they’re good enough for him, they’re definitely good enough for me.
Although the takedown versions are fine for those on a budget, it’s the Future 5.1 Hybrid which is really the star of the show. This is the elite choice for any serious stoppers out there, with the fully-knitted backhand fitting like, well, a glove. Honestly, these are comfy enough to wear on your next winter stroll in the country.
Just like the boot silo of the same name, the Future is an unbelievably flexible and light glove which has you making all kinds of crazy saves. Hm, I guess it’s no surprise that one of Puma’s best keeper gloves turns you into one giant cat. A cat with incredibly good handling, that is.

8. Nike Vapor Grip3
The Vapor Grip3 is hands-down Nike’s best goalkeeper glove. Okay, so the Swoosh is most famously found on boots and shirts, but this is an excellent choice if you aren’t looking to spend too much. In fact, it’s one of the best training gloves you can get on a budget right now.
Designed for use in both wet and dry conditions, there’s no doubt that the Grip3 offers outstanding value for money. Worn by Manchester City’s Ederson, these gloves are all about (you guessed it) improving your grip on the football, with 4mm of Contact+ foam absorbing its impact.
Yes, there are better gloves out there for high-level keepers, but the Vapor Grip3 still offers everything most of us really look for. It’s not as light, strong or flexible as others in the list, but it remains one of the most breathable, airy gloves out there. So long, sweaty palms.

7. Puma One Grip 1 Hybrid
The Puma ONE Grip 1 gloves are absolutely fantastic, and they’re nowhere near as expensive as many of the other gloves on this list. Whether you’re a professional or just need something for Sunday league, this is another great goalkeeper glove for those on a tighter budget.
Even the most expensive version, the Hybrid Pro, is very reasonably priced at around £50. Yep, this means you can get hold of an elite-level glove without remortgaging the house, and I’d definitely recommend this model over all the various takedowns.
For a start, the Ultimate Grip Latex essentially turns you into a shot-stopping brick wall, while the embossed backhand strengthens any punches clearances. Besides, I’m pretty sure Gianluigi Buffon wears these, and I’d never dare to question Superman.

6. Reusch Fit Control G3 Fusion
It’s not hard to see why these are worn by over 220 professional goalkeepers. The Reusch Fit Control G3 sets the bar in innovation, boasting one of the most advanced foam palms currently on the market.
Utilising the fantastic G3 technology, this material offers unbelievable grip in all conditions, marking some of the German brand’s finest work to date. The hands are protected by Pro Flex technology, which also improves mobility and flexibility, and the impressive AirVent system ensures the gloves are as breathable as possible.
These gloves are available in a range of cuts and dazzling colourways, and they’re a consistent all-rounder for keepers at the very highest level. Jam-packed with fantastic features and technologies, these remain just as impressive as ever.

5.Uhlsport Radar Control Supergrip
That’s right, Uhlsport is back again, and so is the innovative Supergrip technology and 3D Shockzone. This time, the embossing on the fingers is packed with foam designed to optimise your punches, helping you get maximum distance in clearances and basically snuff out any danger.
The Reflex version is particularly impressive, with the negative cut providing a tight, skin-like feel which is very nice and cosy indeed. However, this once again depends on what you find comfortable, but fortunately there’s loads of different cuts for you to choose from here.
Just like the Dynamic Impulse model, it’s obviously the *ahem* super grip which makes the Radar Control worth your hard-earned cash, with the innovative foam delivering excellent handling and control. Very nice indeed.

4. Reusch Attrakt G3 Fusion
Now this is a top goalkeeper glove. There’s a lot on offer in the Reusch Attrakt range, but it’s the G3 Fusion model which really steals the spotlight. I mean, Hugo Lloris and Samir Handanovic have been known to wear these, so it’s fair to say you’re in pretty good company.
The insanely sticky palm is made from G3 Ultra Soft foam, which is basically fused together with extra adhesive particles to provide one hell of a grip. Just as importantly, these little latex dots are weather-resistant and insanely durable, so you can always be confident you’re getting plenty of bang for your buck.
If I had to choose one, I’d probably go for the more advanced, tighter Evolution cut, since this definitely offers the best feel on the ball. Every keeper wants to have a safe, secure pair of hands, and that’s exactly what these gloves give you.

3. Uhlsport Pure Alliance Supergrip+
By now, you’ve probably gathered that uhlsport know their way around a goalkeeper glove. To be fair, most of you probably knew that already, but you might not know that the Pure Alliance Supergrip+ is the best of their very impressive bunch.
Yes, you read that right: Supergrip Plus. This is an even grippier upgrade to the sensational Supergrip tech, with the new foam formula designed to handle whatever the weather might throw at you. Yep, this new latex will have the ball sticking to your hand so much, you’ll feel like you’re almost cheating.
This glove sets a new benchmark for keepers at the highest level, featuring a breathable backhand and a springy “Rebound Zone” for punching. The double-strap fastening offers a perfect fit, but the headline act is definitely all that grippy goodness in the latex.

2. adidas Predator 20 Pro
Okay, I get it. This is a controversial choice. When adidas released the Predator 20 Pro, it felt like Apple had taken away our headphone jacks all over again. This time, it’s our beloved strap which has been taken away instead, arguably creating the most expensive washing-up gloves of all-time.
Once you get past that, though, these are suitable for much more than just washing the dishes. Thanks to the sensational Demonskin on the backhand, the latest Predator is unlike any other keeper glove on the market, with all those tiny little spikes getting some real welly behind any punched clearances.
Imagine getting the famous Predator control and power, but on your hands instead of your feet. Well, that’s pretty much what these gloves offer, alongside Primeknit fabrics, grippy URG 2.0 latex and an incredibly snug fit.
Even if you don’t fancy the negative-cut, strapless version, this is still the most aggressive goalkeeper glove ever made.

1. Reusch Pure Contact 3 G3
Here we go. The best goalkeeper glove on the planet right now… well, at least according to us. To be honest, though, there’s not really much arguing against the Reusch Pure Contact series, especially the glorious G3 Fusion models.
After banging on about the Attrakt, I’ve already told you all about the awesome G3 latex and just how sticky it can be. The Pure Contact 3 has an edge over every other glove in Reusch’s glittering back catalogue, though: the sticky latex runs straight down to the cuff and offers a game-changing contact zone. The clue is in the name, really.
This is also one of the lightest, most flexible goalkeeper gloves ever created, and it honestly feels like you’re wearing a second skin. The famous Asymmetric fastening gives you a stable fit, robust protection and, on top of all that, they’re also pretty darn comfortable.
In a nutshell, these keeper gloves are just a little bit special. That’s exactly why they’re at the top of this list.

How Often Professional Goalkeepers Change Their Gloves?
Goalkeeping gloves are by far the most essential equipment for any goalkeeper in soccer. Every professional has a few pairs of gloves sitting in their kit bags. The reason for keeping extra gloves is to have separate pairs for training purposes. Soccer is a sport that is followed by billions around the globe. Professional soccer players are treated by fans as celebrities. People copy their style, attire, looks, and kits.
So, how often a professional goalkeeper changes his gloves? There are professionals that use a new pair of gloves every match, however, there are also players who give priority to the ones having better grip, flexibility, and ball control. Such players usually wear gloves for 5 to 7 matches.
Replacing gloves is entirely dependent on the professional who is using them. Cause there is evidence that professional soccer goalkeepers do not use their match gloves for training and they take extra care of their game gloves. It will be different for every case, and in this article, I’ll help find out what’s best for you.
How Often You Need to Replace the Gloves?
We cannot generalize a particular period for use of gloves. Player preferences for wearing gloves multiple times can be contrasting but the life of a goalkeeping glove is usually 12-14 matches which are constant for every pair. Changing gloves are also dependent upon certain other variables.
If you are reading this, you are probably not a professional goalkeeper and you don’t have the means to spend so much in gloves, so how can anyone buy gloves that are not only good but are durable as well?
The answer to this lies in the discussion that if you are a beginner at soccer goalkeeping and want to buy gloves that are of fair quality and are long-lasting, you need to consider buying training gloves for starters and then move on to the higher quality material gloves. Training gloves might not be the best gripping or fitting gloves but they are definitely built for hours and hours of practice.
What gloves to choose according to your needs and budget?
Gloves for a goalie are of prime importance in soccer. The most essential gear involved for a goalkeeper in sports is his gloves. On the basis of quality and pricing gloves are of various types.
If you are a professional with no restrictions of spending top dollar for a pair of gloves it is important for you to go for highly protective, good gripping gloves that might not be durable but are of ace quality and serve the purpose of necessary protection and care.
To have the know-how of such gloves visit my Recommended Goalkeeper Gloves Page where I give you my top picks for this important piece of gear for goalkeepers.
This link has some of the best quality goalie gloves that provide you with all the top features of protection, quality, and grip. They might wear out quickly but to use them for the long-term you can prolong their life by only using them for official matches and taking extra care.
If you are someone that is close to a beginner and has no earning through the sport of soccer you might consider buying gloves that are of fair enough quality and durable. Having limited resources, it is imperative for you to buy something that can aid you in training hard with ultimate endurance and can withstand hours and hours of practice.
Some gloves I recommend that are affordable and durable for beginner level soccer players can be seen here Low on Budget Gloves. The gloves listed here are of reasonable price and quality, serve the purpose of training quite properly.
Tips for taking Care of Gloves
- When buying new gloves, be sure to wash them and let them dry before using them for the first time. This is intended to help improve their grip. Such practice is good for latex-based gloves.
- Be sure to place the gloves in a place of cool and insulated environment in the off-season.
- Do not put your gloves and palms together. They can cling together and tear-off.
- Make sure to use expensive gloves only for proper matches in order to increase the life of the gloves.
- Don’t use gloves while they are still wet this might damage the shape and fabric of the glove.
- Make sure not to throw them in areas where they might end up in other player’s feet. It will be detrimental to their cause.
Materials used for making gloves
This is a major factor in deciding the life of a glove for a goalkeeper as many goalkeepers change gloves in every match but the ones that use gloves which are made of latex material often wear them for 4 to 5 matches because the grip becomes better after a few washes.
Gloves that have a better feeling of grip are mostly used by professionals for multiple matches. And they only take the gloves out for match purposes.
Professionals have a separate pair of gloves for training so that the gloves they are comfortable with will last longer, and can use them mostly when it is most important: matches.
As technology advancements have been made throughout, changes in sportswear have also transpired with new features being added for extra protection and better feeling. Gloves are mostly selected nowadays on the basis of how much finger saving ability they possess and how much grip they provide.
One more added feature that professional goalkeepers look for in a glove is flexibility and movement for achieving ball control. By assessing flexibility goalkeepers decide on how far to go with a particular pair.
Goalkeeping Gloves Features
While considering buying a professional pair of gloves there are multiple things to look for before opting to buy something online. Such considerations involve the following:
The backhand is mostly padded with protection which is necessary for keepers while punching the ball forcefully. Cheaper gloves only have a foam padding which is not enough, whereas, expensive ones have latex for protection.
The Finger area is an essential part of a glove as it is necessary for holding, controlling, or tipping the ball over the goalkeeping bar. Low-quality gloves do not have any support for the fingers inside resulting in strains when hard kicked balls are attempted to be stopped. Expensive ones have supports inside the finger area of the gloves to protect any fracture and reducing the chances of strain. Professionals prefer protection that is safer as well as flexible to work with. In such cases, bendable plastic protection is of best usage.
The Palm area of gloves is of 2 textures: smooth and dimpled. Expensive gloves are the ones having smooth textured palms as it has a sticking agent that helps a goalkeeper to grip and grab a ball hit forcefully. But the sticking agent gets weaker with every match that is such gloves are only used in proper matches.
Dimple palmed gloves are mostly used for training purposes as they have less clinging ability but more durability then expensive ones. Such features render them useful for training for the long-term.
It is part of the goalkeeping glove that connects to your wrist and keeps the glove in place. It comes in 3 types: Bandage, v-notch, and hook & loop. Bandage closure gloves usually fix the wrists by wrapping around like a regular bandage. Hook and loop closure gloves are made using elastic and are adaptable. V-notch closure gloves have a breathable mesh-like design keeping hands dry and increasing airflow.
Types of Goalkeeping Gloves
Following are some general types of goalkeeping gloves:
These are the gloves used by goalies in proper league matches. Such gloves are expensive because of their protective material (latex paddings) and internal spines along with flexible plastic protections. They also have a quality grip with ball control ability. Gloves of this quality are only used for proper matches as they are sensitive.
Such gloves are mostly used by lesser experienced players and are used as training gloves by professional goalies. They lack the excellent protective ability and gripping but are more durable.
These gloves are worn by players for protection against extreme weather conditions like hailing, raining etc. Their palm area is made up of top-quality gripping material. Gripping of such materials enhances in rainy conditions making them ideal to wear in rain.Types on basis of Cuts/Fits
The manner in which the palm of a glove is produced is known as cut or fit. Some types are as follows:
This design of the palm is brought about by only a single flat foam padding. The fitting of flat palmed glove is a little loose and moveable for the hand.
For professionals that like a tighter grip of the glove on the hand generally prefer such rolled sided gloves that are stitched at the back of the fingers.
Such gloves are mostly designed for professionals having quite thin hands. The fingers are sewn internally very close together providing a very tight grip of the glove.
As the name suggests this glove is made by adding features of the aforementioned types.90,000 Is it true that soccer goalkeepers use up to 50 pairs of gloves per season?
Rubin’s goalkeeper line is one of the strongest in the Premier League today. The Kazan club includes three excellent goalkeepers, each of whom is worthy to defend the team’s goal. This was clearly demonstrated by Rubin’s rookie Nikita Medvedev, who recently made his debut in the Kazan club and immediately defended his goal intact.
It was the 25-year-old newcomer of the club that was given the chance to replace the ill main goalkeeper of the team, Yuri Dupin.One of the decisive episodes of the game took place in the 86th minute of the 7th round of the RPL Dynamo – Rubin (0: 1), when Medvedev deflected a difficult free-kick. And the way to the ball into the gates of the Kazan club was blocked by the goalkeeper’s bright gloves.
According to the footballer himself, he plays with Nike gloves. He had a personal contract with this brand, but it ended about a month ago. However, after the match with Dynamo, in which Medvedev played flawlessly, the player’s new personal contract, we hope, is not far off.www.fcdynamo.ru
But this is very handy, since during the season, according to Medvedev, he spends from 30 to 50 pairs of gloves. Yes, gloves are a real “consumable” for the goalkeeper. And not even the main goalkeeper of any RPL club (if he wants to fight for a place at the base, stay in shape and be always ready to enter the field) spends at least a couple of dozen pairs of gloves per season.
Basically, this ammunition is “killed” in training, during which the goalkeepers touch the ball several dozen, and up to a hundred times, hitting back shots, catching the ball during canopies and performing other exercises.https://www.rubin-kazan.ru/
Interestingly, the other two Rubin goalkeepers are a little more thrifty in terms of goalkeeper ammunition. So, the main goalkeeper of the Kazan club, Yuri Dyupin, admitted that he used to spend not many gloves – “about 6 pairs”. Now, according to the goalkeeper, he spends “about 16 pairs per season.” The goalkeeper has a contract with the PUMA brand.
“I’ve been playing Pume for a year and a half since I signed a personal contract with this brand,” said Dupin.
As for another Rubin goalkeeper, Ivan Konovalov, he changed his supplier this year.The goalkeeper has a personal contract with the Rinat brand. The creator of this brand was the Mexican goalkeeper Hector Castro, not known to the general public. The idol of this Mexican was the legendary Soviet goalkeeper Rinat Dasaev, whose name gave the name to the football brand.https://www.rubin-kazan.ru/
“I have been playing with Rinat gloves for about 4 months, and since mid-July this year I have signed a personal contract. Prior to that, for five years he played for the Uhlsport brand, and the first professional gloves were Reusch, ”said Konovalov.
According to the goalkeeper, he uses about 25-30 pairs of gloves per season.https://www. rubin-kazan.ru/
However, no matter how much ammunition Rubin’s goalkeepers spend, the main thing is for the fans and the club’s coaching staff so that they miss less.90,000 Top 10 Goalkeeper Gloves – 2021 Ranking (Top Based on Expert Opinion and Reviews)

Which goalkeeper gloves are better to buy
When choosing goalkeeper gloves, you should pay attention to the material of manufacture of the palm part – the convenience of reflecting blows and the reliability of gripping the ball depend on it. For both beginners and experienced goalkeepers, it is worth purchasing models that use combined textile materials or latex.
It is important to determine the required pair size. The correct choice affects not only the comfort during the game, but also the safety of the athlete.
Gloves should be 2.5-3 centimeters longer than the palms. In order not to be mistaken, we also recommend measuring their girth. A value of 19 cm corresponds to a size of 7, 27 cm – 10. In any case, you should specify your size in the table of a specific manufacturer.
We advise you to take into account the protective qualities of the models. Some of them are complemented by special embossed inserts for a safe return of the ball.On the inside, there should be rigid spikes that secure the fingers. Inexperienced goalkeepers are advised to buy gloves with padded palm rests.
One of the important criteria is the type of cut. Among the main types, there are:
- Flat Palm,
- Roll Finger,
- Negative Cut,
- Hybrid Cut.
The correctness of the choice depends on many factors, including the preferred style of play, the level of training, etc.As a gift for your child, it is better to buy Negative Cut gloves with inner seams. Effective ventilation of the Flat Palm is essential during prolonged gaming sessions. For catching the ball, Roll Finger is the best solution.90,000 The Real Madrid goalkeeper is wearing Ukrainian gloves. They were created by hater Putin
None Nike, Puma or adidas.
Posted by Andrey_Lunin (@ lunin_12)
Andrey actively maintains her Instagram, posting photos from matches, with your girlfriend or just from rest.But on August 17, 2017 then the player of the Luhansk “Zorya” laid out a photo of several pairs of goalkeepers gloves from Brave. On the same day on the “Tribune” there was an interview with the goalkeeper of “Mariupol” by Rustam Khudzhamov . He spoke very harshly towards Vladimir Putin (“I would have told him simply: *** [get off] from us and let us live in peace”) and confirmed that Brave GK is his story.
“We develop with a partner model of gloves. We do so that this brand is not recognizable only in Ukraine, but also abroad. We we have been working for only nine months. But it seems we already have many clients. Incorrect to name exactly who has already bought our gloves without their consent. These are the goalkeepers both the first and the premier league. We want so that 70 percent of Ukrainian goalkeepers played in our products, ”said Khudzhamov. Now his brand will definitely go beyond Ukraine. At the same time, gloves are produced, like him stated, not in Ukraine, but prices at times lower than those of top manufacturers, although for professionals it does not play great role.
“This the idea arose for a long time. Noticed to develop gloves, because who if not me, the goalkeeper, understands this. Although I am, of course, a demanding person in this plan. It often happens that outwardly the glove looks perfect, but I found something to complain about. We tried to collect all the most interesting in our gloves, to make them durable. There is a preconceived notion that everything that is done in Ukraine is not of very high quality. And we are trying to change this so that the goalkeepers play in Ukrainian gloves, “said Khudzhamov in the first days after the creation of the brand a year and a half ago in an interview with Football24.Andrey Lunin and Rustam Khudzhamov / photo: Facebook Brave GK
Trying to Lunin himself changed this opinion. About his he does not directly tell the choice, but he regularly publishes his own gloves. It was in them that he interested scouts of Real Madrid and other three thousand clubs.
Now Brave GK can’t get away from the fact that her client stands for Real Madrid. After each Facebook and Instagram workouts torn by proud posts for his compatriot.Besides Lunin, now among famous clients Bogdan Shust , Alexander Tkachenko (both – “Vorskla”), German Penko (Karpaty). After transfer Lunin in Real Madrid they can join and other goalkeepers of the country, but, maybe even colleagues for outside of Ukraine. Madrid have already decided take a newcomer on an American tour, and this is increased attention to each speck of dust on each piece of the player’s “creamy”.Of course, this is a big plus for the footballer himself, but it is also a breakthrough for Ukrainian gloves, the online store of which, judging by the appearance, comes from 2010, and half of the links do not work, but such details are easily corrected.
Spanish The media say that Lunin will spend this season in the first team without any rent or references in youth teams. Then the situation that the Ukrainian saves the gates of Real after possible failure Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varana already doesn’t seem so fantastic.To that he does it with gloves from his country. Adidas, Nike, Puma can start be nervous about the emergence of a competitor.

Alexander Schegolev90,000 Metsola: “I’m not the smartest goalkeeper”
Salavat Yulaev’s goalkeeper Juha Metsola commented on the defeat to Amur (1: 2) in the KHL regular championship match.
– Very difficult game, always difficult to play in Khabarovsk, time zones, long flight. Missed goals, it’s my fault. We failed to recoup.
– Comment on the curious puck into your own goal.
– There was no ricochet. I would like to replay this moment. Accident. Tried to lock the puck. You don’t have to concentrate on which goal you conceded. Any puck missed gives the same result. Of course, I would like to replay this moment.
– In your last five matches, Salavat won only once. Does it put pressure on you?
– No. It’s our job to play under stress. We must give ourselves to the maximum. Do not focus on this. When the match is over, there is no point in worrying too much. Then there will be a new game, you need to prepare.
– Is Salavat inferior to the opponent in speed of movement and thinking after a pause?
– I don’t know. This question should be asked to coaches.I’m not the smartest goalkeeper who just plays in goal.
– Was it pleasant for you to play in Khabarovsk today?
– I would love to stay here one more day. I would walk around the city, look at familiar places. I have many friends left here, Khabarovsk is a wonderful place.
– What is the situation in the team after four defeats in a row?
– After defeats, there is an unpleasant sensation. But in my opinion, you shouldn’t worry too much.Then there will be training sessions, games , – the Gorobzor.Ru correspondent reports Metsola’s words.
