Nokona baseball gloves are made in Nocona, Texas using a number of different leathers including kangaroo, cowhide and buffalo. From hot stamping, to embroidering, to lacing, Nokona has been handcrafting ball gloves since 1934.

I sold baseball equipment for years and I have to say this about Nakona gloves. They are beautiful, well built ,stylish and will last a LONG time. ((((BUT))) Their gloves that are made from kangaroo hide are terrible they don't break in they break down. like toilet paper in NO TIME .They become so flimsy that you can't use them. The guys that I knew that had them loved them for a while ( a couple months) then would put them in their bag and buy something else.
I had walmart gloves playing tee ball and coach pitch and up into minor league, when I was 12 My dad bought me a Nokona for like $250, my mom was pissed he spent that on a glove but whatever, I'm 20 now and still use that glove and it has constantly remolded to my hand and got character every year, it might be a little small now but nothing out of the ordinary and all my friends brag about their new Wilson gloves but I know I got the best american made out there without a doubt
My dad gave me his glove when I got into High School. We played catch growing up and he showed me the game. I played all the way through college and even met my wife on the field. I was moved to tears when he gave me the glove. It means the world to me and has alot of value in our family, which is pretty funny for a simple object. My first season freshman year he gave it to me befor I fielded. He told me to play for what matters and play hard. We didn't win but what he said always stuck with me. My kid will be ending middle school this year and it will be his turn to make a future for himself. I'll be passing it down as I hope he does one day. He loves it like I do and its part of our family. We have settled disputes, made friends, meet loved ones, and held dreams playing the game with that glove. Your family is our family and I hope this tradition last for generations to come.
We thank you for your expertise and craftsmanship. That dedication to quality has made the glove last for years and I hope generation more to come. I'll definitely be getting another glove from you when I pass on mine.
With respect from my family to yours.

The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
