Foam palms and backhands: The majority of foam palms and backhands are extremely soft and provide excellent grip in most conditions, because of the softness and grip, the palms of most gloves are subject to wear. Therefore Just Keepers Ltd & the selected brands we stock cannot be responsible for abrasion that results from normal wear or damage caused by general use.
Deterioration will be particularly apparent during early and end of season use when the grounds are at their hardest. Try to avoid glove contact with the ground if at all possible!
Young and inexperienced goalkeepers may also notice fast deterioration of the foam; this will become less apparent when individual technique improves.
The majority of gloves we sell are worn by the World’s best goalkeepers who play on the best surfaces with the best quality footballs, most of whom use the gloves for a maximum of 6-8 games. If this is a concern please choose harder wearing foam palms.
We advise using new gloves just for matches and an old pair for training/warm up.
The colouring on the majority of goalkeeper gloves will fade and wear during play, this will not affect the performance of the product in any way.
If any of the above is a concern do not buy the gloves.
- Use no aggressive cleaning agents or brushes
- Do not machine wash
- Wash by hand at 30°c
- Do not tumble dry
- Do not expose to direct sunshine or other sources of strong heat (e.g. radiators) as this can reduce the life of the product
Cleaning your gloves:
- Moisture your gloves with lukewarm water
- Add a small amount of Glove Cleaner on the gloves and rub in substantially into the gloves
- Wash out the glove thoroughly with lukewarm water
- Let the gloves air dry (Do not expose to direct sunshine or other sources of strong heat)
Roll Finger & Negative Cut Style Foam Palms:
With both being very popular and sought after styles we must warn you that the stitched seams and fingers do come under immense stress during the course of training and match-play and Just Keepers will not offer replacements or refunds for burst seams and damaged foam around the stress areas.
Great care should be taken when putting the gloves on and taking them off especially roll finger styles...REMEMBER YOUR GLOVES ARE DELICATE!
As per our foam palms guide the same applies to the above styles: The majority of gloves we sell are worn by the World’s best goalkeepers who play on the best surfaces with the best quality footballs, most of whom use the gloves for a maximum of 6-8 games. If this is a concern please choose an alternative flat palm.
