My son plays shortstop and 3rd base. We are looking for a solid glove for travel & tournament play. He just turned 8 years old.
The Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series (1000JR) would be a great options for a player of that age and positions. It is good quality leather but still soft enough for a younger player to be able to break it in easily.
Is the 1000JR a Nocona?
No. The Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series (1000JR) is made by the Shoeless Joe glove company. Nokona is a separate company.
My son is 9 years old, what would be a good size for him now and give him room to grow over the next couple years?
We recommend an 11 inch glove for a 9 year old player. So the Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series (1000JR Youth) would be too small. I recommend looking at the Shoeless Joe Professional Series (1125CW). This will be a little big for a 9 year old but it will give him growing room.
Shoeless Joe Gloves give a player the quality, feel and style of the gloves used by professional ball players over the last 100 years. You can choose glove models used in the first half of century in the Golden Age Series, today's models in the Professional Model Series, or youth gloves with the Joe Junior Series. Shoeless Joe gloves are individually hand-cut and sewn from Special Aged Antique Tobacco Leather Hides. Shoeless Joe gloves are then hand-rubbed with old time ingredients to soften the leather before they go through their breaking in process that leaves the glove with a beaten up and "Game Worn" look and feel, of a broken in glove. Thus each glove is unstructured giving it its own unique features. Players can choose to play with an old time or modern day web without having to change to another model. A great play is lived only once, but your glove, you'll keep it forever. If you end a game with a clean uniform our gloves are not for you. Shoeless Joe: When It Was Just a Game. Free Shipping!
Shoeless Joe is now offering a reconditioning program for all of their gloves! Once your glove is starting to wear down, simply send it back to Shoeless Joe, and for $18 they will recondition your glove using their original Antique Tobacco Tanning Oil. After reconditioning, your glove will look as good as it did the day you got it! To participate, simply contact Shoeless Joe at (855) 563-4568 to get your RA number and get the process started.
