The Last Baseball-Glove Maker in America

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.

Fred Miller says:

Modern gloves require zero skill on behalf of the wearer. Their the size of snow-shovel scoops. Who couldn’t catch a ball wearing one?

American name yet they choose a name/logo that looks Japanese… what the fuck?
