The problem with just typing this goalkeeper glove keyword into a search engine, the strong chances are the goalkeeper is not going to get the goalkeeper gloves that they actually wanted.
However the people who sadly make this schoolboy error mistake, is the parents of a goalkeepers. Or a coach buying a goalkeeper glove for their club keeper.

When you are picking a gk glove, you must make sure this gk glove is the correct shaped glove for your hand.

(Please see below how to pick the correct shaped goalkeeper glove size 10 for your hand shape).
What happens to most goalkeepers is instead of getting the correct glove for their shaped hand, they will buy a glove that these websites will recommend because like I stated above, these websites are veery good marketers.
But… here is the BIG but…
These websites are not marketing the best goalkeeper glove size 10 for you, nope, they are marketing the best goalkeeper glove size 10 for them.. because they want to market…
The goalkeeper glove that will give them the biggest profit
The goalkeeper glove brand they are under pressure to promote, maybe by their supplier
The goalkeeper glove that has just been launched onto the market, so its a new glove and they have just £10,000 worth of stock.
The goalkeeper glove that they have too many in stock of, so need to sell fast..ie, outdated stock!
So these online websites and companies are promoting a glove for THEIR benefit NOT for the goalkeepers benefit,
So, the most important thing you have to do when buying goalkeeper gloves is make certain the glove is the correct shape glove for your hand.
I would go as far to say, picking the correct goalkeeper glove size 10 that is your hand shape, is much more important than picking the best specification glove that is the wrong shape for your hand.
