The majority of goalkeeper gloves that we sell use very high quality latex palms and materials, sourced and manufactured to offer the best possible grip in all conditions. Latex is a very soft, natural product and as such is subject to wear and abrasion over time. Just Keepers Ltd and the selected brands that supply the products cannot be held accountable for wear to the palms.
Prior to use:
- Rinse the gloves thoroughly prior to first use with clean lukewarm water, this process helps rid the gloves of any impurities from the production of the latex or stitching process.
- Please note that it may be advisable to wash the gloves more than once for maximum performance.
- After use wash the gloves with a recommended glove wash or a mild detergent to remove any dirt from the palms and allow glove to dry naturally.
- Do not allow the gloves to dry in a warm place or in reach of direct sunlight as this could make the latex brittle and damage the latex.
- DO NOT DRY USING ANY OF THE FOLLOWING PROCESSES: Radiator, hair dryer, airing cupboard, tumble dryer or direct sunlight.
Most latex palms will begin to show signs of wear within their first use. This is normal and can be down to many factors that may include: many variables of play e.g. (the age of goalkeeper, their technique, the playing surface, how the gloves were prepared, were the care instructions followed).
As with all soft latex goalkeeper gloves the better you care for them the more life you will get from them.
Wear to the foams usually happens when the gloves come into contact with the ground, but they can also wear from something as simple as pulling your socks up, even when putting your gloves on as most gloves use a course Velcro closure which can be prone to wearing the latex.
If your latex starts to show signs of wear, don't worry! Glove wear is normal, that's just what latex does, latex is a soft natural product which is made to provide the grip that all goalkeepers need and want!
Please note that all goalkeeper gloves will offer grip and continue to perform until there is virtually no latex left on the palms.
Deterioration will be particularly apparent during early and end of season use when the grounds are at their hardest. Do 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 the 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 an alternative flat palm style.
If any of the above is a concern do not buy the gloves. If this is a concern please choose harder wearing palms (not soft latex), which may offer better durability, however please be aware that the grip will be far inferior.
We would always advise using new gloves just for matches and an older pair for training/warm up.
The colouring on the majority of goalkeeper gloves will fade and wear during play, this can and does happen and this will not affect the performance of the product in any way.
Goalkeeper gloves are made and designed for use on soft natural surfaces like grass, unless specified in the product description (e.g. specialist 3G /astro turf palm).
Please note that when using goalkeeper gloves on an artificial surface such as 3G or astro turf - you will be placing a higher level of stress on them and wear will be more apparent than on grass.
ROLL FINGER & NEGATIVE CUT STYLE FOAM PALMS:
With both of the above glove cuts 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 Ltd will not offer replacements or refunds for burst seams and damaged foam around the stress areas. Gloves featuring a 'Negative Cut' palm will show wear on the fingertips and thumbs quicker than others, this is due to the way the gloves are stitched. This type of cut provides a much tighter and more natural feel on your fingers, but as a result comes under more stress.
Great care should be taken when putting the gloves on and taking them off, especially roll finger styles, try and remove your hand from the gloves and not the gloves from the hand, try to put as little stress as possible on the seams, fingers and thumbs when taking your hand from your gloves.
IF ANY OF THE ABOVE IS A CONCERN PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE THE GLOVES OR CONTACT US PRIOR TO PURCHASE AND WE CAN HELP YOU FURTHER
It sounds like an obvious thing to say but goalkeeper gloves do not last forever, so you need to look after them. Generally, the more you pay for a pair of gloves the better the latex quality will be but this type of glove will age and wear faster if used for both matches and training and also if used on astroturf and artificial surfaces. Extremely soft and high quality latex palms which are used in top end gloves have an excellent grip but will not be as durable as some lower priced gloves, which will not have quite the same quality grip but should be more durable. The problem isn’t a matter of quality but rather related to the softness of the latex which is linked to durability depending on usage, how you look after them and the surfaces that you play and train on.
Although there is no exact life span of a pair of gloves, top end match gloves might last up to a dozen or so games prior to them losing their performance and starting to show signs of wear, depending on how often they are used and of course how well you care for your gloves. Once a match pair of gloves starts to show signs of wear they can become a training glove. So it’s up to you to find the right gloves within your price range to meet your requirements. But whatever gloves you decide to buy you should always look after them to extend their life.
The life span of your gloves is also about your technique and how you dive and catch the ball, which determines how much stress the gloves will go through during their life. Also, as mentioned, the type of playing surface that you train and play matches on will have a big effect on the life of the gloves. One tip if playing on astroturf or artificial surfaces is once you have made a dive don’t get up using the palms of your gloves as this will wear them out quickly! Instead try using the backs of your hands/fingers to get back to you feet.
If any of the above is a concern please contact us prior to purchase.

||Length in cm
Goalkeeper glove sizing is a very individual thing. We all have personal preferences to the way we want our gloves to fit and feel. As a general rule (some goalkeepers may prefer their gloves tighter or loser fitting)
measure your hand from the tip of the middle finger to the base of the palm. Then add on a cm to take into consideration the thickness of the latex padding and lining used in the gloves
