Nokona has built its reputation on these classic leathers. Inspired by Nokona’s history of handcrafting ball gloves in America for over 80 years, the proprietary Walnut Crunch™ leather in the Walnut™ series is a signature Nokona – this glove provides great stability, flexibility, and durability. The Classics have been updated with a new look that highlights the gloves’ modern features, while paying tribute to Nokona’s long-standing baseball heritage.
* Please be aware that there is no coloring in laser branding, the contrast will be greater on lighter colored leathers.

We purchased the WB-1200 for our youngest son to use for his 12U travel baseball team. Since we play 80+ games per year, we wanted a glove that would hold up to a rigorous schedule. Needless to say, after 3 seasons and well over 200 games and countless practices, I am convinced that Nokona makes the BEST BALL GLOVE AVAILABLE!! We have since purchased the 12" Buffalo Combo for our middle son to use for high school ball. To all the fine folks at Nokona: THANK YOU! Not only for making what we think is the best ball glove available, but also for doing it right here in the USA!! Ya'll have a customer for life!
