My Son has been playing academy football since u9's and is now an u14 in this time we have had numerous brands of gk glove including all the big brands and both he and I were big fans of both Nike and adidas his favourite was the adidas! To my surprise he was due for a new pair and he said he had found the hedera website and would like to try them ( if I'm honest I said I think you would be better sticking to what your used to ) Then arrived the gloves as soon as he put the gloves on he said wow these are comfy and the cut and design was impressive very impressive the grip seemed tacky but the gloves obviously needed to be put to the test so fast forward to the weekend and Sunday mornings game... He was absolutely BLOWN away with the cut and grip!!! From a parents point of view they looked fantastic on! I really really would urge anyone serious about GK to try these gloves they are a serious very serious GK glove!!!
