OK, so I got this as a Daddy glove. One glove I wanted to have for a long time for playing and coaching my kids.I researched gloves a lot, saw a lot of gloves in stores, and kept coming back to Nokona. They don't have the massive advertising and sponsorship money or distribution of Rawlings, Wilson, etc, so you won't see them everywhere. But when I asked people who really knew about gloves, they pointed me to Nokona.The glove has a good structure about it, yet the leather is supple and broke in easily. I do not expect this thing to get all floppy any time soon, yet when the ball comes into the pocket this glove owns it. An unexpected detail I didn't see in the photos is that the top edge of the basket curves up slightly, providing maybe an extra 1/4 inch of reach -- which has come in handy more than expected. The little index finger platform offers a way to change the grip slightly. After playing catch almost every day for a week, the glove felt ready to rock.The glove is made in the USA, in a small town. I like that. If I need to repaired or relaced or repadded or completely overhauled, I can send it to Nokona and they'll do it for a reasonable fee ($36 to repad and relace). This is important, because I want to have this glove forever. This is a classic.A few specifics:- 12" is a great utility size. I was gunning for a 12.5" or 12.75", but I'm glad I got 12" as it feels agile and still gives me some reach for those liners and flies. I have read that Nokonas run slightly small. Compared to 12" gloves I tried on in stores, mine doesn't seem small.- This is the "Classic Walnut" leather, the tried and true. Nokona also makes a composite 2-leather glove combining this leather for the outside of the glove and then kangaroo leather for the palm and pocket -- this is called their "buckaroo" or "kimera" series. These are just a bit more expensive, and supposedly the kangaroo leather is really plush. I didn't want that. I wanted the classic.- Please don't rub a bunch of conditioner crap into this glove before you try it. Even Nokona's NLT conditioning cream (like a firmer Vaseline). The glove comes with a hint of NLT on it, and in my experience this is all you need. I have ruined gloves by overdoing it with oil or conditioner.- There are so many Nokona SKUs out there, check and be sure you know what you are buying. If in doubt, call Nokona. (Phone number on their site, or responsive via email). Don't be the guy who ordered a lefty glove and needed a righty glove.- Mine looks a lot nicer than the photos. Just sayin'
