Our Story

#welcometoone

We’re goalkeepers ourselves, we know how expensive it can be for you guys. And after being sick of having to choose between overpriced models or cheap low quality, we decided to change the game for everyone.

How we changed the game

We were one of, if not THE first brand in the world to pioneer a pro-grade goalkeeper glove at an accessible price (all the way back in 2004!). We’re goalkeepers ourselves, we know how expensive it can be for you guys. And after being sick of having to choose between overpriced models or cheap low quality, we decided to change the game for everyone.

We wanted every keeper to play with confidence and trust in their hands, without worrying about affording that inevitable replacement pair. When you choose a pair of OGs, you're choosing nearly two decades of experience and craft. A pro glove for everyone, from Sunday League to the Premier League.

Average RRP of Premier #1 Glove

ONE Glove is the only goalkeeper glove in the world at this price point that has been Premier League proven. For six straight years a number one GK in the world’s best league has trusted our gloves and we don’t expect that to change.

Crafted. Not made.

At ONE, we don’t “make” gloves. We craft them. Anyone can make a glove, anyone can add a logo to a product. But to craft a glove - that takes a combined 40 years of love, blood, sweat and tears for the game.

Every single goalkeeper glove you touch from us has been forged in the fires of goalkeeping that is our team. Everything is designed, developed and tested from a group that represents the Coaches, the Pros and the Wednesday Night Warriors among us.

We know what it’s like to beat up your body on at that dry Sunday League ground just as much as we know how it feels to have 50,000 fans behind you. Our gloves don’t just ooze quality and experience, but history.

Our History

We’ve come a long way since 2004. You’d never believe it but back then we were selling gloves out the boot of our car and literally had one product. That’s right… “The One Glove Company” originated from the goal to have a pro level “one glove fits all” model that catered to everyone!

  • Founded in 2004
  • Surveyed the market extensively from Sunday League to International
  • Pioneered affordable pro grade gloves
  • Started with just “one” glove!

It’s fair to say our ambition and our product range grew since then! But the name and it's legacy remain. It doesn’t just represent the beginning of us, but the beginning of a movement to deliver pro gloves you can afford. We are the original alternative.
