Why Goalkeeper Gloves Are Needed
While you are standing protecting the goal, it is of great importance to make sure that your body is fully protected as you are often subjected to balls travelling at a grave speed which could cause injury from impact. As a result of this, we often seen goalkeepers wearing shin guards like the rest of the players and sometimes mouth guards too. But the most popular form of football equipment that has been engineered to enhance the performance of a goalie as well as keeping them safe, are the gloves.
When it come to your reflexes in goal, it is often the easiest option to go for your hands or dive, therefore ensuring your hands are protected is a must. Goalkeeper gloves have many layers to them as to provide an optimum level of protection while still ensuring that grip is not compromised. There are four main elements that make up a pair of effective goalkeeper gloves such as the ones we have available on our site:
- Padded backhand
- Latex textured palm
- Finger protection and mobility
- Secure fastening straps
