GoalKeeping Glove Size Guide

Although our gloves are pretty true to size, different styles and designs can come up slightly differently so we've put together a handy size guide. As a general rule of thumb you can use the below suggestions, however as this is based on averages we highly recommend measuring your own glove size with the help from the video further down the page.

HOW DO YOU MEASURE YOUR GOALKEEPING GLOVES?

 It is not common sense to realise that fitted gloves will help with performance. Getting the fit right is extremely important, a correctly fitting glove means more comfort, more confidence and the most natural contact with the ball. A glove too tight can put greater stress on the materials and lead to premature wear or even splits, a glove too loose could cause an unnatural grip of the ball. With that said glove fits are a personal preference, some may prefer more space and others a more snug feel (which is why you will see some keepers opt for tighter cuts like 'Negative', or some the looser cuts like 'Flat Palm' or 'Roll Finger').

 Check out this handy video to help you measure your hands correctly by non other than Martin Sanders, a GoalKeeping Professional from Ab1. As a general rule, you measure your goalkeeping gloves from the tip of your middle finger and down to the bottom of your palm. However, you may want to consider taking into account the thickness of the goalkeeper glove, as this will inevitably add a little extra bulk to the measure. We advise that adding 0.5cm to your measurement (for purposes of caution) in order to allow for a little bit more room in your glove. For further accuracy, measure your outer palm to your thumb tip.
