Break In Your New Glove Fast
If you want to break in your glove fast, our baseball and softball glove conditioning break in is perfect for newly-purchased ball gloves. Whether you don’t have time to break in your glove or the leather is just too stubborn, just like our bat rolling, we have now perfected the art of breaking in a new leather glove.
Pre-Oiled Gloves Need Still Need To Be Broken In
There are no short cuts! Even higher-end gloves that are “pre-oiled” are difficult to break in properly and evenly, that’s why we’re here. We don’t claim to have invented glove conditioning, but we sure did perfect it. Once you send your glove(s) to us you will never want to break one in by yourself again.
Glove Conditioning Steps To Provide Maximum Performance
Our Glove Conditioning: 1-2-3 Perfection!
Step 1: The right tool for the job: We have 6 different glove shaping mallets in our shop as every glove needs something different, and your glove is no unique so it gets special treatment as well. We use each specially designed mallet to either break down each glove at its specific flex points, form a pocket or help break in the palm with a weighted head. This specific working of the leather increases the effectiveness of the manual labor process. Since every glove is built differently, this is where our knowledge and experience comes into play. The forming of the leather on the these proper crease points while holding the integrity of the rest of the glove 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 break in is the key to proper break in.
Step 2: Hydrate the leather: We apply a small amount of specially formulated glove conditioner to the leather and laces, both inside and out. This conditioner will be absorbed by the glove’s pores which helps keep the glove in top condition all year. This extra conditioning step will help by keeping dirt and debris out of the newly stretched out leather pores. Hydrating the leather will also help the glove last longer as it will resist absorbing water which can lead to early dry rot.
Step 3: Proper form: To get the perfectly formed pocket, each glove has 100 weighted baseballs caught in the web helping form the pocket and laces. Once the glove has a nice pocket formed, we need to make sure the glove maintains it true form en route back to you. After the glove conditioning process is completed, we put a ball in each glove and wrap them up with rubber bands prior to shipping them back to you. This ensures the glove hold its form on its way back to you. We do these extra steps to ensure the full effects of our break in process.
