Nike has begun its shift towards using knit fabric in a lot of its newer products. Knit fabric has already made its entrance through cleats for football, but the addition to the glove family should be interesting.
As a personal preference, I have gone away from Nike gloves because they have lacked the durability to last me through a good stretch of games. Rips and tears in the materials have forced me to spend a lot more on gloves than I planned. The innovation of using knit fabric is very exciting because this could prove to be an extremely durable glove with good ventilation. As a student-athlete or recreational player, the goal is to have a pair of gloves that can last the long haul. The gloves come with the usual MagniGrip which does well catching balls and the pre-curved fingers that allow a better range of motion.
This seems like it should be a pretty solid glove and Nike is going in the right direction incorporating more knit fabric into products. Do you guys think that this will be a better glove and would reviews for gloves help you pick the right one? Comment Below! If interested in the Nike Vapor Knit Gloves, they can be purchased at Nike.
