Pros: One of the finest gloves available, top notch, you will never want to buy another glove, you will not be disappointed
Cons: needs some good break in time, so allow for this.
by Bryan - Jun 17, 2010
Pros: I have a version of this glove made with Kangaroo leather on the back. It is a beautiful glove and extremely well made. Plays wonderfully. You never have to worry about a hard-hit ball bending the glove back. I love it when people see it. They've never heard of it but are immediately impressed. I love that it is American made.
Cons: No matter how many times you read how stiff this glove is, it will shock you when you pull it out of the box. Take this as a sign of quality. You get the feeling that it is all but indestructible. One issue: My hand gets rather sweaty. If I had to do again, I would choose a pattern with an open back. But it would be a Nokona.
by anonymous - Jan 24, 2011
Pros: There is certainly a hand-made feel with Nokona. This is the glove I used as a player, and now as a coach it does me good to see my players wearing and taking pride in it. And that's why I still use Nokona. It's simply a quality product, and you can tell from the first moment you hold it.
Cons: With this high grade leather it's going to be a battle to break in. But it's worth the love, affection and time to get it there.
by MikeL - Aug 21, 2012
Pros: Durable as all get out. Great feel and phenomenal control. I play in a couple of leagues and this is my gamer for all of them. It took some real work to break in, but once you get it right, it feels like part of your body. Easily the most natural feeling glove Iâ€™ve ever played with. Prior to Nokona Iâ€™ve have an A2K and HOTH, this blows them both away. Iâ€™m in my fourth year with it and the pocket and heel are soft and responsive but the bridge and hinge are firm.
Cons: Wee bit heavy Break in / Break in / Break in I picked it up late season and played catch all winter and I STILL had to make trips to the batting cage to catch balls off a machine before the season started. Stay away from glove treatments. I called them and they said itâ€™s treated at the factory and they recommend you break it in the old fashioned way or risk wearing out the parts that should be stiff. Treat it with Nokona glove oil once a year and you should be OK.

Pros: The most awesome glove I've ever used. I play 1B with this glove and never drop a ball. Well padded, perfect leather,durable,holds a perfect shape. Best glove for the money by far.
Cons: I cannot find anything wrong with this glove besides the break in time. It will take several practices to break in.
by anonymous - Jun 16, 2010
Pros: This is absolutely and by far the best glove I've ever used. The craftmanship, the quality, the performance, all are unsurpassed...I'm very surprised I don't see this manufacturer in the MLB more often! You will be extremely satisfied with this product! This will prove to be the last glove I ever use...awesome...love it!...
Cons: It's true the break-in time is longer for this glove but extremely worth the effort and the money spent...
by anonymous - Jul 03, 2011
Pros: Great glove, can't wait till its fully broken in. I've had lots of compliments ... and had to wipe off a little drool after showing it to the guys! :)
Cons: None ... people say it stiff ... this is a good thing.
by Johhny Softball - Oct 24, 2011
Pros: Beautiful Glove, Well made, Unbeatable Quality
by Lee - Feb 06, 2012
Pros: the glove is amazing, i use it for baseball and softball. i coach and the kids who borrow it want to know where i got it from.
Cons: the glove takes sometime to break in but when it is broken in it is amazing. there isnt enough padding in the palm area. be careful when using the break in mallet it will bruise your hand.
by anonymous - Mar 03, 2012
Pros: Love this glove! Sounds silly, but am as excited about this glove as I was when I got my first glove many, many years ago!
Cons: Not really a con, but this thing takes some time to break in.
by 6foot3 - Apr 30, 2012
Pros: To say this glove is stiff out of the box is an understatement. With some Nokona glove conditioner worked in by hand, a ball in the pocket, some rubber bands and a mallet, this glove is ready to go in a week.
Cons: Have not found any yet.
by JpXtremem - Jul 19, 2012
Pros: Great quality leather. Nice stamping and well oiled out of the plastic. Not quite broken in yet after 1 week. Will take some TLC to break inn you way. best fitting glove to my hand I have ever had. Would reccomend to anyone that wants a glove to pass down to you rkids one day and play with for a long time!
Cons: If you don't know how to properly break in a glove after watching the video here. Please take to your local professional shop and have them help you. Nokona reccomends their conditioning oil not sold on this website. FYI... DO NOT OVER OIL
by Love The Game - May 22, 2013
Pros: When you hold this glove you can feel the quality and craftsmanship. Once broken in the glove closes itself when hit in the pocket. It is sturdy yet comfortable and hinges in the right spot. You could shoot a ball out of a cannon and its not getting through this glove. MADE IN AMERICA and it shows the love this company puts into every glove.
Cons: None! no reason to even have this "con" text box for this glove.

Is this glove for a guy and not a girl? My 13 year old daughter plays fastpitch softball. Would this glove be okay for her?
Asked by busymom on Jan 29, 2013
The Nokona Walnut Softball Series: WS1300C is a male softball glove. We recommend the Nokona Buckaroo Black Fastpitch Series: BF1300CBLK or the Nokona Buffalo Combo Fastpitch Series: BCF1300C for your daughter.

I am looking to purchase a Nokona glove for my father-n-law. He wears a x-large batting glove. Will this glove adjust to fit his large hand?
Asked by Doug on Aug 27, 2012
The Nokona Walnut Softball Series: WS1300C has ample room in the hand area and finger stalls. He shouldn't have a problem fitting in to it.
· Aug 27, 2012
Would this be available in left hand model?
Asked by bob on Aug 07, 2012
We don't have a firm ETA at this time, but we should be receiving more left hand thrower models of the Nokona Walnut Softball Series: WS1300C in approximately 2-4 weeks.

The nokona web site has a picture of this model glove (WS1300C) with a velcro strap and yet your web site has the glove shown with out an adjustable velcro wrist strap. So which one do you guys sell? The one with a velcro strap or the one pictured with a leather lace strap? Thanks and I will place my order as soon as this is made clear.
Asked by Dan on Jul 19, 2012
The Nokona Walnut Softball Series: WS1300C has a leather lace strap.

Have you ever seen on this model, a "pp" emblem in the palm, just about 2 o'clock from the indian emblem? Does it stand for anything? Pro Player model....?
Asked by jon on Mar 22, 2012
I've never seen a glove in Nokona's Classic Walnut Series with that "PP" on it. However, I'm pretty sure I know what it stands for. On some Nokona gloves (mostly their Bloodline Series) they use their patented Proprietary Prime leather. This is just a high quality leather used as the basis for some of their higher quality gloves. I wish I had a definite answer, but I think this may be it.
· Mar 22, 2012
For a slow-pitch softball league, would this be the right size for 3B? My current glove is a wilson a2000 xlc (it's pretty old, but just starting to get floppy), but I played both OF & SS with that one. I tried the 12" on in a store, that was way too small, their next size up was the 13.5.
Asked by Tony on Feb 28, 2012
Absolutely. A 13 inch glove is perfect for 3rd base in slow pitch softball in my opinion. Nokona's last a long time too.

IS THIS GLOVE INFIELD, OUTFIELD OR A UTILITY GLOVE OR ANY COMBINATION OF THE ABOVE?
Asked by nIC on Jan 10, 2012
This glove is an outfielders model.

besides price and Kangaroo back what is the difference between the walnut and Buckaroo series? And which one would you prefer if you had the option?
Asked by Jaybird on Jul 28, 2011
The gloves in Nokona's Buckaroo Series will be lighter in weight than the Walnut Series. The Kangaroo leather has a tensile strength 2 to 3 times greater than traditional cowhide leather. Both will display similar durability, but the Walnut Series will be a little stiffer than the Buckaroo.
· Jul 29, 2011
Is Nokona the only American Made Glove you carry ?
Asked by Zach on Jun 30, 2011
Almost all Nokona Gloves and Akadema's Patriot Series are still made in the USA.
· Jun 30, 2011
besides price and Kangaroo back what is the difference between the walnut and Buckaroo series? looks like the same glove
Asked by kmh on Jun 28, 2011
It comes down to the quality of the leather. Kangaroo leather is a high quality, lightweight, and durable leather.
· Jun 28, 2011
will it fit a large male hand?
Asked by mike on Jun 25, 2011
Yes. This glove has plenty of room and has an adjustable wrist strap. You shouldn't have a problem with it.
