Glove Conditioning Steps To Provide Maximum Performance
Step 1: We apply a hot water technique to open up the pores of the leather both inside and out, this let sthe leather breathe and flex more.
Step 2: A specially designed mallet is then used to break down each glove at its specific flex points, thus increasing the effectiveness of the steaming process. Since every glove is built differently, this is where our knowledge and experience comes into play. The forming of the leather immediately after the water technique is the key to success. This process is completed in 4-5 sessions over the next 2-3 days. Working the gloves by hand along with our conditioning services is the key to proper break in.
Step 3: We apply a specially formulated glove conditioner to the glove, which will be absorbed by the glove’s pores. This conditioner helps keep the glove in top condition all year long by keeping dirt and debris out of the leather pores.
Step 4: After the glove conditioning process is completed, it is shipped back to you wrapped up and with a ball placed inside the pocket. We do this to ensure the full effects of our break in process.
