The position of a goalkeeper can be considered the most difficult, and certainly the most responsible one on the pitch. Players who decide to play in the goal should not only be well prepared physically, but also have strong character traits. Goalkeeper gloves are a necessary piece of goalkeeper equipment. Choosing the right Nike gloves can correct the shortcomings of a goalkeeper and, above all, minimize the risk of making mistakes that are not related to his skills. Every goalkeeper, who wants to compete with the strikers and the balls, which are to cause you as much trouble as possible, must feel confident and comfortable on the pitch. There are great players with extraordinary reflex, or who have relatively small hands, who can "feel" the striker but have a poor grip. In both of these situations properly selected gloves can minimize the problem, while emphasizing the player's skills. Each part of the glove helps protect the goalkeeper's hand in different ways. Different models help goalkeepers play under certain conditions. The construction of the Nike goalkeeper glove doesn’t differ much from the other companies offers. The back of the hand is heavily padded to protect the hand when striking the ball. Cheaper gloves usually have only one layer of foam, while the high-end models are cushioned with latex. The fingers are the goalkeeper's best defense as they allow him to catch and hold the ball. The fit depends on the goalkeeper’s preference. Some like the control that gloves with stiffening provide, while others choose a looser fit which gives fingers more freedom. Part of the hand helps to catch and secure the ball. It’s the element that wears out the fastest, so it needs special care. The fastener is the part that attaches the glove to your hand. Velcro fasteners are made of flexible material and have an adjustable strap that can be tightened or released.
Goalkeeper gloves are just like football boots, and they come in many different models. The companies offer gloves that differ in design, foam or the materials used. Nike goalkeeper gloves offered by the R-GOL shop are one of the most popular goalkeeper products in the world. Only brands such as Adidas, Reusch or Uhlsport are equally popular.The key to finding the equipment that guarantees the highest comfort and effectiveness of the game is choosing the right size. In theory, the size is the same among goalkeeper gloves producers. The most common range is from 3 to 12 - the higher the size, the larger the goalkeeper gloves. In most models, the junior sizes are 3-7 and the senior ones 7-12. Sometimes, sizes 7 and 8 in junior overlap with the senior Nike gloves.
In the R-GOL shop, you can find three cuttings of Nike goalkeeper gloves.Flat - the most popular cut characterized by visible, external sewing, intended mainly for beginner goalkeepers. It is characterized by the highest durability. The foam of the catching area, called the Palm, is separated from the back of the glove by a material that is most often by high air permeability, which ensures exceptionally good ventilation of the hand. The simplicity of the Nike flat goalkeeper gloves makes this model cheaper than the others. However, gloves of this cutting are slightly less fitted and looser, so they will be perfect as training gloves.Negative – this cut is based on sewing the side panels to the foam with an internal seam. As a result, the gloves fit the hand better, ensuring a proper fit and a better ball feeling. The cut is often chosen by professional goalkeepers, mainly because it provides excellent damping against strong shots and allows a more secure grip. Perfect as match gloves.Hybrid - a cut that combines the features of other known solutions. The construction guarantees the highest possible ball feeling and shock absorption. In structure it resembles Rollfinger, but the seams are hidden inside the glove. This cutting of Nike gloves is among the most expensive in the R-GOL shop offer.
