In this blog, Our owner and Goalkeeper Glove Guru Martin Sanders talks us through the Nike GK Vaopr Grip 3 including a sizing and fit advice.
The Nike GK Vapor Grip Cut has been around for many years and is worn by many goalkeepers not just in the top leagues but also at grass roots football.
I have always found the VG3 quite big for size, a size 8 Nike Premier SGT fit me a treat however the VG3 always seems around 1cm longer in the fingers, a drop in size sees me get the best fit.
The one thing I have always loved about the fit is the way the cut spreads the fingers like no other glove cut, both the index and pinky fingers are pushed outwards slightly, when catching a ball the latex surrounds the ball giving an amazing hand to ball contact.
Nike still use the tried and tested 4mm German Contact latex on the palm, this latex offers outstanding grip in all weather conditions it’s also a very durable foam that does not tear up quickly.
The Nike Vapor Grip 3 is the chosen glove of Joe Hart and Jack Buckland as well as so many other goalkeepers.
