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. Video by Brian Schildhorn Made is a series of short films that demonstrate how everyday luxury objects are made, and honor the process and artisans behind them.

A lot of kids in my league don't use nokona. I don't either, I use rawlings. Its just not really popular where I live.

Quite a lot of leather. . . and a lot of sad cows.

I definitely prefer the old logo that's on the glove I bought in Nocona a few years ago, but I could warm up to the new one.

I thought it was a Japanese company cuz it sounds like it kinda like Mizuno. Nice to know it's still made in the USA.

“Just like skin...” well, yeah! Leather IS skin ;) For real though, these are amazing quality and I love that the business stayed local. Lots of MLB players use these regularly and now I can see why.

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. G and family Conroe, Tx.

Makes sense to keep making gloves in America. One of the few things indigenous to America should remain here.
