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 different so it gets special treatment as well. A specially designed mallet is used to break down each glove at its specific flex points, thus increasing 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 services is the key to proper break in.
Step 2: Hydrate the leather: 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 3: Proper form for the long run: After the glove conditioning process is completed, we tie up the laces again to ensure proper form. We put a ball in each glove and wrap them up with rubber bands prior to shipping them back to you. This helps the glove hold its form back to you. Once this is done it is shipped back to you . We do these extra steps to ensure the full effects of our break in process.
