Would you recommend this glove over the Akadema Gator Series (AFL11)? What's the leather difference?
Both are great choices. Basically, the only difference between the Akadema Torino Series (ARO18) and the Akadema Gator Series (AFL11) is the Gator print shell in the Gator Series. Both are made for infielders, however, the Modified T-Web of the Torino series glove is better suited for use by a pitcher and infielder.

The Akadema Torino Series: ARO18 is a stiffer than average glove that holds its shape very well over time.
Does this glove have the same leather as the Rawlings Pro Preferred gloves?

Known for comfortable gloves that perform unlike anything else on the field, Akadema has raised the bar with the Torino Series. With a light brown palm and a chocolate brown shell, the Torino Series performs even better than it looks! Akadema's newest glove line is made from soft and smooth kip leather that enables the Torino Series to be 20% lighter than traditional gloves, yet just as durable as U.S. steer hide.
