One more nod to quality handmade baseball gloves.
Nokona Athletic Company, of Nocona, Texas, started producing sporting equipment in 1933. I guess that means it has some heritage, or that it feeds off a great internal tradition. Ultimately, what strikes me about Nocona is that they make beautiful baseball gloves. Above is their Buffalo Combo glove, built from ranch sourced South Dakota Bison. Touted as “soft and sturdy,” the glove probably works best for guys like us – those that haven’t played in years and are ultimately too lazy to break a new one in.
In addition to gloves, Nocona produces nice core baseball product – bats and catchers equipment. And, some really sexy bags. If you happen to be interested in the craft side, check out the American Craftsman Project, which features Nokona and some other good stuff.
The bag comes after the jump.
