Goalkeeper gloves correct sizes


Here’s a simple guide to help get the best fit:

The right fit should be the HIGHEST PRIORITY when selecting a glove. To make your glove fit PERFECTLY you need to understand these questions:

Do you have LONG skinny fingers?  Do you have wider fingers? Do you have THICK hands?

  • The Glove should be roomy and not tight on your hands.
  • Your fingers should reach the end of your fingers by about 1/2 inch or some people like an inch.
  • Your hand should not slip or slide when secured to your wrist. If this happens it means the gloves are too wide around your hands or fingers.
  • Say no to loose gloves. Gloves should NOT fit like a WINTER GLOVE, an inch to an inch and a half from the end of your fingers. NOTE: gloves will RIP if do NOT get your correct sizing.
