As equipment goes, there are few things more important to a goalkeeper than high quality, reliable goalkeeper gloves. Everyone tasked with this vitally important role on the football pitch will have their own take on what works best for their goalkeeper gloves, so it is worth looking at the three main types so the right decisions can be made. We have a wide range of cheap goalkeeper gloves without sacrificing any of the quality that goalkeepers expect.
Reckoned to be one of the most popular cuts for goalkeeper gloves, flat palm is generally made from a single latex piece. There are gussets in between the palm and back of the hand, and the fingers are constructed so they look like a box. Stitching that fixes the palm to the gussets sets the seam on the outside of these goalkeeper gloves.
Increasingly popular in the UK, rollfinger goalkeeper gloves don’t use gussets. The palm is fixed straight on to the backhand so that the latex is wrapped or rolled around the fingers, hence the name. It allows for excellent ball contact, so providing a better ‘feel’ when a ball is caught. Women keepers find the style popular because they fit more snugly than the flat palm goalkeeper gloves.
These have a similar feel to the flat palm goalkeeper gloves, and the way they are made means the gloves have a more snug fit than the flat palm ones. Some goalkeepers think it offers a better ‘feel’ when throwing and catching, and as the fingers do not tend to twist there can be improved catching when the ball hits the latex.
