New World Cup. New goalkeeper gloves. We decided to take a look at what each brand had to offer this year and the keepers that would showcase them at Qatar 2022!
adidas ‘Al Rihla’ Pack
Named after the 2022 World Cup ball, the ‘Al Rihla’ pack delivers vibrant graphics with a pearlescent finish. Bringing fresh looks for both the Predator & X models, this latest release from Adidas is really an eye-catcher.
Manuel Neuer (Germany) and Emiliano Martinez (Germany) are two of the most notable keepers to don the new colour way, both with their own SMU versions of the Predator glove.
AB1 UNDICI BIANCO World Cup Edition
Worn by Serbia number one, Vanja Milinković-Savić, AB1 gave us a special World Cup version ‘Undico Bianco’.
The Undici collection combines the latest developments in design, fabrics and production techniques to deliver an elite level glove. As a relatively new brand to the goalkeeper glove scene, Vanja became the first keeper to wear Begovic’s brand on the World stage.
Nike ‘Generation Pack’
Inspired by the next generation of goalkeepers who are taking the game to new heights, Nike unveiled the ‘Generation Pack’. Consisting of a metallic copper look, we saw new designs for the Vapor Grip, Phantom Elite, Mercurial Touch & more.
Both Belgium’s Courtois & Brazil’s Alisson opted for their usual Vapor Grip models at Qatar 2022.
Uhlsport Speed Contact ‘Blue Edition’
Uhlsport updated their colourway for the Speed Contact range from Orange to Blue for their World Cup endorsees. The German brand also included a new limited edition Pure Flex model in this new collection.
Rising to the big occasion in Qatar was Morocco star, Yassine Bounou who stuck with his Uhlsport Absolutgrip’s throughout the tournament.
Reusch ‘Desert Bloom’ Pack
In reference to flowers blooming on sandy grounds, Reusch’s ‘Desert Bloom’ pack was born. Featuring 8 new models as well as the introduction of their brand new AdaptiveFlex system, Reusch did not fail to deliver. This was reflected at Qatar 2022, as they were the most represented brand at this years World Cup!
You would have seen the likes of Hugo Lloris, Wojciech Szczęsny & Unai Simón all wearing their own unique models at the tournament. These models however were missing the famous Reusch logo on the backhand due to advertising restrictions.
Puma ‘Fearless’ Pack
Promoting being yourself and staying loyal to your own style, philosophy, and freedom, Puma brought us the fearless pack.
England number one, Jordan Pickford went with his signature SMU ULTRA Grip model in the new vibrant colour way. Fellow Puma endorsees Yann Sommer & Ederson each had their own SMU versions of the FUTURE glove.
