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:
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 so stitching failure & latex wear will be more apparent than on grass.
Great care should be taken when putting the gloves on and taking them off, especially lightweight & strapless styles which are now very common and popular, 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, unfortunately the stitching can start to break down over time and from general wear, especially between the wrist, thumb & palm area. Please note that if gloves are significantly worn when stitching issues occur we would be unable to offer a refund or exchange, this is down to the manufacturers and Just Keepers discretion.
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.
STRAPLESS / LIGHTWEIGHT GLOVES
The new trend in the goalkeeping world is strapless/lightweight gloves, these are very sought after and popular styles with many of our customers.
Please note that these types of gloves are very slim/tight fitting and is made to fit as close to the skin as possible and can be tight around the wrist and base of the hand area.
Unfortunately this will make the gloves more prone to stitching faults as they are more difficult to get on and too get off, especially after use when the hands are hot and sweaty etc.
Please take extreme caution and as much care as possible when removing these types of gloves from your hands, 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, and the added stress areas, where the palm is stitched to the gloves, the thumb area, and the finger gussets.If this style of glove is a concern please choose an alternative style/model or contact us before purchase and we can help with any other questions you may have.
PLASTIC FILM ON PALMS
Please take great care when removing the plastic film from the palms of goalkeeper gloves.
We appreciate that this can be a tedious process but removing the film as carefully as possible is key so you do not knick or damage any bits of latex.
Please do not remove the film from the palms unless you are keeping the gloves, as once once the film is removed from the palms we are unable to offer a refund or an exchanged if the gloves do not fit or are unsuitable etc.
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
