Best Tips For Picking Your Next Pair of Goalkeeper Gloves

Aviata Goalkeeper Gloves

It is that time again - time for you to pick your next pair of gloves. And you have arrived here looking for a little help, wanting to make sure you get the best pair. There are several factors to consider to ensure you get the right ones for your needs. Here are some tips to help you pick the right Aviata goalkeeper gloves:

  1. Grip: One of the most important factors when choosing goalkeeper gloves is grip. Look for gloves with latex palms, like for example our German Magnetik supreme contact latex on the Stretta Magnetik Yeti. It is the type of latex that will provide excellent grip on the ball. We stand by the latex used on each glove, making sure they offer high-quality performance for their price range. 
  2. Fit: Goalkeeper gloves should fit snugly without being too tight. Look for gloves with a comfortable fit, as you'll be wearing them for extended periods of time. If the gloves are too loose, they can slip off your hands, and if they're too tight, they can restrict your movement and cause discomfort.
  3. Protection: Look for gloves with adequate protection for your fingers and palms. Some gloves have additional padding in the palm area to reduce the impact of hard shots. We have a wide variety of gloves that feature removable spines, offering extra protection for your fingers. If you are a pro level keeper, feel free to easily and quickly remove the spines!
  4. Durability: Goalkeeper gloves go through a lot of wear and tear, so make sure to choose a pair that is durable and can withstand frequent use. Look for gloves with reinforced stitching and high-quality materials. If you play on turf, check our Halcyon Turf gloves that feature a signature Palm Guard that helps keep your latex in its best shape.
  5. Weather conditions: Consider the weather conditions you'll be playing in when choosing goalkeeper gloves. Some gloves are designed for use in wet conditions, while others are better suited for dry weather. Choose gloves that will provide the best grip and protection for the weather conditions you'll be playing in.
  6. Price: Goalkeeper gloves come in a range of prices, so consider your budget when choosing a pair. While higher-priced gloves may offer better grip and protection, there are also many affordable options that provide good quality. We pride ourselves on the fact Aviata gloves provide BETTER quality/performance than other brands at a much more affordable price point. Don't believe us? Try our 30 day money back guarentee on a pair.

Ultimately, the right goalkeeper gloves for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. Try on different pairs, and choose the ones that feel the most comfortable and provide the best grip and protection for your playing style.
