Nike Goalkeeper Gloves
Football boots and apparel have advanced tremendously over the past 20 years. But goalkeeper gloves, much like the players who wear them, have often been overlooked — until now. Nike is changing the game for keepers with the most advanced goalkeeper gloves ever introduced.
Nike Mercurial Touch Elite.
Nike designers began the creation process by throwing out all assumptions about what gloves are supposed to have simply because they’ve always had them (things like straps, bulky padding on top of the hand, multiple components and so on). At the same time, they applied key learnings from other gloves Nike has developed across a wide spectrum of sports, including surfing, baseball, American football and golf. The result is a glove that delivers everything goalkeepers need and removes anything they don’t in an innovative design tuned to the modern game.
The Nike Mercurial Touch Elite gloves look, fit and feel different than previous styles. By reducing the bulk and stiffness of traditional mitts, the gloves are designed to unleash the ultimate potential of a goalkeeper's hands. The strap has been replaced by a flexible wrist cuff that extends from the joint to the lower forearm for mobility and comfort.
