Best baseball glove leather

Our Custom baseball glove is a high quality product and as a boutique sports equipment company, we need as close to 100% satisfaction from our customers. We do this by not taking shortcuts in glove production and buying the best baseball glove leathers from Japan’s well respected tanneries, whose tanning processes are considered best in the world.

Question #1:  When the custom glove builder starts the first question is to pick the position you will use your glove or mitt. 

Question #2: This step starts by asking you the leather quality that you want for your glove. US Premium Steer(steerhide) or Dutch Kip (premium kip leather).

Glove Basics

After you select the quality of your glove the remaining required options are:

  1. Glove Pocket. Your selection will tell us which glove pattern to use.  For example, if you play middle infield position and your range is excellent, maybe a shallow pocket would aid a quick release. 
  2. Hand Size: We can adjust the wrist enclosure to insure comfortability. If you are buying for a youth player, the wrist section has two sets of lace holes to adjust for when the players hands strengthen and increase in size.
  3. Throwing Arm. The arm which you throw with.
  4. Glove Flexibility. All gloves are new and after construction, are very stiff. If you want us to start the breaking in, we can. 
  5. Palm Protection:  This option is for internal padding. Our premium gloves do not need padding. However, we can put a thin padding if you wish..

What Our Customers Say..

I really love the quality of the wood that's used to make NYStix. I've had a few bats that lasted me longer than some of the top name brands that are used by actual professional. I have no complaints ask the baseballs I've used them on, lol.

NYStix wood bats are awesome. I've had them for a long time and they feel really, really great. As a coach and a player good equipment is needed for winning results.
