News flash: the female hand is not built like the male hand. In fact, it’s different in four distinct ways: the female hand is more narrow, has a shorter pinky finger, has a longer thumb, and has closer-in-length pointer and ring fingers. To ensure that females get the best fit out of their goalkeeper gloves, Keepher Soccer makes female-specific gloves so women no longer have to wear gloves designed for men. Let’s take a look at the different models the brand currently has on offer.

To get the maximum grip and life out of your goalkeeper gloves, it’s important to take care of them by washing them after every match. Dirt, sand, and grime builds up on the soft, natural latex the more you wear the gloves, creating a layer between the ball and your latex palm which reduces grip and traction. This leads to quicker deterioration of the delicate latex palms, which are already subject to wear and abrasion just from a player’s technique, age, and playing surface. To lengthen the life of your goalkeeper gloves, you should use the following products to ensure a proper cleansing of the latex after each game.
Everyone wants their soccer cleats to last as long as possible, but many players do one thing that can seriously ruin them; wearing them on pavement.

This is how you can prevent it.
While shin guards may not be fun to wear, they’re just as necessary as soccer cleats or a jersey.
