The Alpha™ series glove is a top-of-the-line baseball and softball glove designed for infield and outfield positions. It boasts a combination of game-readiness, durability, and high performance, making it suitable for players of all ages.
One of the key features of the Alpha™ series is its virtually little break-in requirement. This means that the glove is ready to use right out of the box, saving players the time and effort of extensive break-in periods. The glove has undergone an upgrade, incorporating AmericanKIP™ and SuperSoft™ leathers to enhance its performance.
The AmericanKIP™ leather used in the glove is a premium American steerhide. It shares characteristics with Japanese and European 'kip' leather, making it lightweight and well-structured. This high-performing leather is not only durable but also provides a buttery feel, making it a popular choice among professional players.
Another leather used in the Alpha™ series is the SuperSoft™ leather. This specialty-tanned steerhide is processed using an organic tanning method that utilizes natural materials to cure and preserve the hide. The result is a leather that offers excellent flexibility and softness, enhancing the overall comfort and feel of the glove.
The Alpha™ series glove features a 12" pattern, making it suitable for both baseball and softball. It has a closed web design, which provides added support and stability for catching and fielding. The glove is designed for adult players and features a Velcro back for easy adjustment and a secure fit.
With a weight of approximately 610 grams, this glove is relatively lightweight, making it agile and responsive on the field. It also comes with a one-year warranty, ensuring its quality and durability.
The Alpha™ series glove is handcrafted with pride in the USA, showcasing the attention to detail and craftsmanship that Nokona is known for. Its combination of the Alpha™ brand, full-grain AmericanKIP™ and SuperSoft™ leathers, and position-specific design make it a top choice for serious baseball and softball players seeking a reliable and high-performing glove.$349.95
