Manchester City and England Goalkeeper Joe Hart has recently switched from the Umbro Neo Pro gloves he has worn for the last few years to one of Nike’s most popular Goalkeeper Gloves in the Nike GK Vapor Grip 3.

This is another fantastic goalkeeper who has joined the Nike brand and is a significant loss for Umbro.

Patented Grip3 technology wraps around the thumb, forefinger and pinky, maximising grip and control. The 4mm Contact Foam allows these gloves to absorb shot impact from even the most powerful shots whilst also enhancing grip, so you can make the cleanest catches.

The backhand has ventilated mesh area along the backhand between the fingers for enhanced cooling. The interior has a lightweight mesh with the purpose of keeping the air moving around the hands to keep them cool and dry.

Securing the hand within the glove is a durable nylon wraparound wristband which provides easy adjustments and comfortable fit.
