Goalkeeper Gloves Size Guide

Not everyone’s hands are the same size

Now I know that’s a pretty blatantly obvious statement to make

But we also all have different preferences when it comes to the fit of the glove

Some like them loose fitting

Others prefer to have them tight fitted around the hands

If you want to know how to measure your hands for gloves then Measure your hand for soccer goalkeeper glovesuse this simple method

First spread out your fingers and measure from the tip of your thumb to the tip of your pinky finger

That’s the little one right on the end furthest away from your thumb if you didn’t know already

Then keeping your fingers stretched out

Measure from the tip of your middle finger (the longest one normally) to the bottom of the palm of your hand

Once you have those measurements

Add another centimetre to both measurements to cover the thickness of the padding and the material of the glove

3 Things to Look at When Buying Goalie Gloves

  1. PRICE shouldn’t be a thought in your head whilst buying new gloves to play football/soccer because if you want to have an excellent quality pair, its better to pay more and win the game than be a tight-ass with a cheapy pair and lose the game because you couldn’t keep hold of the ball with the grip-less gloves that you paid for.
  2. THE CUT OF THE GLOVE is the part that is on the palm and finger area which can make or break a goalie glove. There are 5 different types of cuts for goalie gloves which are NEGATIVE, FLAT, SURROUND CUT, ROLLED FINGER, and ROLLED INDEX and they all are made out of HARD LATEX, SOFT LATEX, RUBBER and a few other materials. Find the material that suits your style of play the best so try a few different types out. You should be able to keep a The perfect fit goalie glovesfirm grip on the ball and still have full control of the gloves.
  3. A PERFECT FIT of the gloves will make you play better giving you a better chance of stopping the ball going into the goal, there’s no point in having gloves that are 10 sizes too big for you unless they will cover the whole goals and stop anything getting past without having to move! If you already went through the trouble of finding the perfect cut for your gloves then if your gloves are too big then the cut you have chosen will be affected greatly.

Thanx for the great post.

I play soccer on occasions and I was told by one of my coaches that having the right material for gloves and socks can make a huge difference to a goalkeeper because of the weight he or she has to carry.
It is like water, when you carry a glass of water for a few minutes it will not be heavy at all (assuming it is 1 liters) but if you carry that same water for a long period of time (2 hours) it gets heavy.
So that is why he said when he advises goalkeepers he makes sure that they understand this small but important aspect.
Great post

My cousin is a goalkeeper and he always talks about the new gloves. I was hoping to buy him a present, but actually I’m afraid to buy the wrong ones. I guess I’ll let him choose for himself and then buy them. Personally “Adidas Performance ACE Fingersave” looks really nice, as his old ones is also Adidas. Thank you for a post, will be coming back soon!

Yes getting a pair of goalkeeper gloves for someone else can be a bit tricky as you probably don’t know what they like so the best thing to do is to show your cousin the gloves here and ask them which ones they would like as a gift. Let me know if you need any help choosing a pair, I would be more than happy to help you out 🙂
