Nokona built its reputation on its legendary Walnut Leather and the Walnut Classic Series. Entering into a new era of Nokona gloves, the Nocona, Texas-based company is switching things up with the introduction of its new Walnut HHH Leather. Walnut HHH is a beefed up version of the Walnut Classic Leather for sturdier performance that some players prefer. The Triple H indicates a leather that is between 5.2 and 6 ounces, making these new Walnut gloves some of the stiffest that Nokona manufactures. Walnut HHH maintains the character, look, and feel of Nokona's classic Walnut, but with a stiffer feel. Once a Walnut HHH glove is broken-in, players are left with a glove that is soft and supple, yet remains sturdy - a true, classic.
Best glove I have ever bought and I have tried them all, the quality and feel are unmatched, worth every penny.
Nakona Walnut baseball glove.
Still breaking the glove in, but I can say that the quality is outstanding. My best glove by far. And I am proud that I was able to buy Made in USA Glove for about the same price as a comparable overseas model.
Great Outfield Glove
Exactly as shown. Great American made outfield glove. Fast shipping.
Excellent outfield glove
An outstanding glove for outfield. This glove was my pick after a lot of looking and trying out. Nokona just beat all of the other gloves out there including Rawlings and Wilson in terms of feel and construction. It does take a little longer to break in but that should be a sign that it's a good glove and not something that's ultimately going to fall apart on you when you need it. The leather and construction are all top-notch. Being made in America was a great advantage. Buy with confidence. You'll be amazed how well this glove stacks up to some of the other big manufacturers. It not only meets them but it beats them easily.
Great look and feel Beautiful glove love the old school look over the new age look of the elite x-2. Minimal break in needed. Much less stiff than a similar Wilson A2000. Seems a bit smaller and lighter than a 12.75 size usually is. Which is fine by me. And of course American made!
Perfect - as it appears in photo
I have been wanting a Nokona for at least 20 years so finally buying one is special for me. I researched extensively and considered the Wilson A2000 but decided on this Nokona. This glove arrived in perfect condition - exactly as advertised. It is stiff and in need of conditioner and break-in but that is to be expected. I am very much looking forward to playing catch with my sons for years to come. I am 36 years old and this will be my final baseball glove purchase.
This is the highest quality product that I have purchased in a long long long time. If everything was made this well we would live in a perfect world yes it is not cheap and you are correct it is top quality you get what you pay for but I have forgot what it cost all I know now is I have a perfect ball glove that will last a lifetime. It would be cheap at twice the price do yourself a favor and buy it.
I dont necessarily consider its being American-made a pro but I was happy to spend the extra money on it for that reason. As a glove it is a bit stiffer than a similarly made Wilson or Rawlings -something I like but there were definitely some hand cramps while initially breaking it in. I love the webbing and lace-work because it is strong and well-made/designed. The palm is not over-padded and the glove feels like it should -just an extension of my hand. This may be seen as a con if one is used to not feeling the ball hit center-glove. I like it because it makes me feel closer to the game. Its an incredibly comfortable glove once it starts forming to your hand but fair warning for the average play-catch-in-the-backyard player that will take quite a few hours -my break-in period was about 12. Overall it looks and feels great. If you've got the money and enjoy the game go for it it willl last you a while if not a lifetime. (FYI I havent quite had mine for a lifetime yet haha)
Good quality craftsmanship
Well constructed and good fit to the glove. A little more difficult to break in than some but expect this glove to last several seasons.
