We have a first look at the prototype Rome goalie glove for Maverik. Set to drop in 2012 (possibly Fall ’11) this glove exhibits high levels of contruction, stitching, padding and comfort. The glove shown below is Royal with White down the middle fingers. The palm is high-grade leather including shark skin along the bottom corner. The outer layer above the cuff features X foam which absorbs the shock of a shot. The thumb is heavily padded and reinforced with a Torque shield. View the upclose images of the glove below.
I have actually had the chance to try these out last week and can say that after all of my experiences playing, stringing (traditional of course;), and testing equipment for the past 20 years of my life, these are the best gloves to innovate and hit the market in 20 years. They feel like you are wearing a batting glove that can breathe. There are no hype in these… they will be the new standard to one day become a classic.
I do not work, or am I endorsed by Maverik in anyway as all of my comments are my own.
Looks like I found my gloves for next year.
they feel like a mix between an assault glove and a k18
they have normal gloves to tried them on today
looks like something that the covenant would wear in halo
