How to Measure Your Hand Size
If this is your first ever hand sizing, remember that if your pair of OGs are unused and in original packaging they can always be exchanged for a size up or down.
1. Measure your palm horizontally, as per the guide below, not measuring past the red line.
2. Compare to the chart on the Size Guide tab.
3. If you need further assistance with sizing, please reach out to our team on email@example.com, or print our handy guide (pun intended).
Every keeper has a different personal preference on the tightness or looseness, so you won't truly know your perfect size until you try a pair.
Tip: You do not want your gloves too tight and touching the very tips of the fingers, nor do you want too much excess space causing it to feel "floppy". A glove that is too tight could tear/rip easier and a glove too spacious won't instill confidence.

The Importance of Getting the Right Fit for Your Goalkeeping Gloves
Getting the fit right is extremely important, a correctly fitting glove means more comfort, more confidence and the most natural contact with the ball. A glove too tight can put greater stress on the materials and lead to premature wear or even splits, a glove too loose could cause an unnatural grip of the ball. With that said glove fits are a personal preference, some may prefer more space and others a more snug feel (which is why you will see some keepers opt for tighter cuts like 'Negative', or some the looser cuts like 'Flat Palm' or 'Roll Finger').
As a general rule, you measure your goalkeeping gloves from the tip of your middle finger and down to the bottom of your palm. However, you may want to consider taking into account the thickness of the goalkeeper glove, as this will inevitably add a little extra bulk to the measure. We advise that adding 0.5cm to your measurement (for purposes of caution) in order to allow for a little bit more room in your glove. For further accuracy, use our glove sizing tool print out.
If your glove arrives and it isn’t quite right or wasn’t what you’re expecting then consult our returns policy for further information.
Different styles and designs can sometimes differ, our guides are your best chance at finding the best fit and remember...you can always return them to exchange for another size (as long as they are not used and in original condition!).
