America’s pastime. American made™. Since 1934, Nokona has been producing ball gloves for America’s pastime right here in the United States. Made with top-grain American hides provided by American ranchers, our leathers are tanned in the USA to Nokona’s specifications. This ensures that the highest American and Nokona standards are met so that you can wear your glove with great confidence and pride. Nokona gloves are still produced in the very same small town in Texas, where Nokona all started in the 1920s. They are made by Americans who carefully cut, stamp, stitch, lace, and embroider each glove by hand. Each Nokona has its own unique identity and feel, based on the careful selection of leather per part and its hand-crafted construction. Nokona puts classic American workmanship into every glove, using special techniques developed for close to 80 years. You can visit the Nokona factory to see how a glove is made.
Visit the Nokona factory to see how America's ball glove is made. You will see each part of the process – from leather selection and cutting, to stamping, embroidery, forming, stitching, and lacing. There are so many steps to handcrafting a Nokona, and you will see every one. Located in Nocona, Texas, the factory is just a 2-hour drive north of Dallas.
When you purchase a Nokona, you have selected the best glove made. Nokona's select glove leathers are easy to break in, but may still take time. When getting your glove ready, we suggest that you play catch and break in your glove or mitt naturally. This will allow your glove to form a natural pocket around your hand. You may be familiar with different methods and "quick fixes" to shortcut the break-in period. Unfortunately, we have seen the sad results of many of these over the past 80 years. You may also use Nokona Leather Treatment (NLT), our classic glove conditioner, to help with the break-in.
We perform full service work on our gloves, right in the very factory where your Nokona was handcrafted. From reconditioning to relacing to completely rebuilding your Nokona, we know that Nokona owners love to take care of their gloves.

Nokona gloves and mitts are made from leather that is tanned to our specifications, and are pre-oiled. Proper care will provide you longer use. We recommend using Nokona Leather Treatment (NLT) - and have for over 50 years. We swear by it - we’ve seen the results of many touted oils, but none work as well as our formula.
NLT is best applied by rubbing it into the leather with your bare hands. Work it into every area, including the laces and inside the glove where cracking takes place. Unlike liquefied oils, NLT will not soak through to the padding.
You can also clean your glove with a clean wiping cloth and NLT. Rub the surface vigorously, and the NLT will actually cause the dirt within the grain to rise up to the top where it will be picked up by the cloth.
Just as you would treat your skin when it is dry, retreat your glove as needed. To find a dealer near you who carries NLT, visit our Retail Locator.
Nokona ball gloves are fully guaranteed for One Year against defective workmanship and material when used for the purpose intended under normal conditions, and provided it receives proper care. New this year, the X2 Elite Series comes with a Two-Year Warranty.
