As a Goalkeeper, selecting the right pair of Goalkeeper Gloves is imperative to better performances.
Understand your needs
The first step in selecting what are the best Goalkeeper Gloves that are most suited for you, would be to find out what fit and style best suits you. Selecting from different latex types, glove materials, backhand, colours, we run through the most important features in order to find a Goalkeeper Glove that is right for you.
It’s all about the latex
No matter what level you play at, the latex is the single most important aspect of the glove. That Contact and cushioning between you and the ball is important to the feeling you get when catching. Many glove companies offer a variety of latex’s, each having their own benefits and draw backs. The 2 top latex’s available on Goalkeeper Gloves are Quartz and Contact Latex. Quartz has the highest gripping quality, but abrades quicker. Contact Latex has the great ability to be both Highly adhesive, and more abrasive resistant. SAVIOUR GK only offers these 2 types of Latex because anything other than Quartz or Contact Latex, are inferior in comparison, and not to a small degree.
A Backhand For Support
Just like a skeleton, the backhand makes up the support of the hand. The mechanics in how they work to a Goalkeeper is crucial in developing the appropriate Goalkeeper Glove. The ability for the hand to move, catch and punch, is unique to their position.
SAVIOUR GK provides Biomechanically Sound Goalkeeping Gloves, to help Goalkeepers perform at their best. Each Glove has been designed to how the mechanics of the hand work, with the Goalkeeper’s key attributes and comfort of the in mind.
The Palm Type is as important as selecting the correct latex type, because this will create an important fit around your hand. Identifying between Roll Finger, Flat Palm, Negative cut and Hybrid cut styles, will help you catch better, and increase your performances.
Check out the size
Comfort is the most important priority while wearing gloves. When something wears correct, it will give you confidence. Having a Goalkeeper Glove that is too big or too small, will not give you a true catching feel. To find the correct size check out our Goalkeeper Gloves Size Guide here.
Think about the Weather Conditions, and the field of play
Whether you play in dry or wet conditions, having Goalkeeper Gloves that are designed to provide the best grip in those conditions is imperative.

On average Goalkeepers will go through between 5-15 pairs of Goalkeeper Gloves per year. This is because the more you wear it, the more the latexes decreases its effectiveness as a result of abrasion. Therefore, some top Goalkeepers will change their gloves every 3-4 weeks, to get a constant maximized grip.
