Soccer has a long history with goalkeeper gloves but it wasn’t part of soccer until the late 60s. Since the origin of soccer, the goalkeepers used to play with bare hands and with time some adapted to bandage style and left fingers naked. This wasn’t because goalkeepers didn’t want the gloves but because the material used to make these gloves weren’t easily available and there also was no mainstream industry for these gloves.
We are going to let you in on a secret. Custom goalkeeper gloves are not as standard among professional goalies as you might think. Many pro keepers wear the same goalkeeper gloves available to every other professional, semi-pro, college, and amateur GK. While they might have some input into design features incorporated into the gloves you and I can buy, very few professional goalkeepers worldwide wear custom goalkeeper gloves. So now that you know the professionals aren't wearing custom goalkeeper gloves, what should YOU look for to make sure you are wearing the highest quality gloves possible?
