Glove Conditioning Steps To Provide Maximum Performance
Step 1: We apply a light coat of pre-conditioner to the glove so the pores can open up completely during the steaming process.
Step 2: We apply a specially formulated glove conditioner to the glove, which will be absorbed by the glove’s pores during the steaming process. We then steam your glove based on our predetermined settings. The steam opens up the pores of the leather, allowing the leather to become more malleable.
Step 3: 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 steam process 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 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.
