The A2K Series features Rolled Dual Welting where strips of Pro Stock Leather are skived thin and rolled to provide long-lasting shape. Inside, a thin, strategically cut piece of leather is placed between the palm and outer shell, providing maximum pocket stability and improving the durability where the most wear-and-tear is experienced.Its 2X Palm Construction also provides maximum shock resistance during the catch. A2K gloves showcase the time and passion that Wilson's craftsmen has put into every single glove they produce, as their master technicians spend 3X longer pounding and shaping the glove by hand before it even leaves the factory. That should be all the proof you need that the A2K from Wilson was created with unparalleled craftsmanship, and is one of the highest quality gloves a player could ever take to the diamond. 3X More Craftsman Shaping - Reduces Break-In, Ensures Ideal Pocket Structure.
Double Palm Construction - Prevents Premature Wearing of the Leather in the Palm. Dri-Lex Wrist Lining - Ultra-Breathable, Moisture Wicking Material. Pro Stock Select Leather - Cut From Top 5% of All Wilson Leather Hides. Rolled Dual Welting - Allows Glove to Retain Shape Better Over Time. TIP: Many of the premium gloves including Rawlings Pro Preferred & Heart of the Hide, Wilson's A2000 & A3000, Mizuno's Classic Pro and Pro Limited, etc.Are somewhat stiff when brand new. A quality glove conditioner will do much to reduce the break-in period for any stiff new glove. Almost all glove conditioners will generally darken the leather and appearance of lighter colored gloves. TIP: Regardless of whether you prefer the natural method of breaking in a glove, sooner or later you will have to recondition your glove!
Personally, I recommend cleaning and conditioning a glove each and every year after a good season of use. All leather gloves will start to dry out and laces will become brittle when subjected to regular use. Prolonged exposure to sand and dirt, wind, rain, hot sun, etc. Will take its toll on even the very best glove. PLEASE stay away from those cheap oils, foams or other liquid products out there on the market.The foams don't work and liquids such as oils are absorbed deep into the glove, add a tremendous amount of weight, and are nothing more than a magnet for attracting dirt and debris. Also, PLEASE don't ever bake your baseball glove in the oven or microwave or soak it in the tub to aid in the break-in process.
You will invariably destroy a very fine piece of leather and take years off a gloves life! Personally, I never use anything but a paste type glove conditioner. Although I prefer Wilson Pro Stock Glove Conditioner, there are comparable products on the market from manufacturers such as Easton, Nokona, etc.
Regardless of what brand of paste type conditioner you choose to use, do yourself a favor and make sure it contains lanolin and vitamin E. Nothing is better at restoring and revitalizing the leather on your glove!
With a little care, your glove should last for many years and most likely outlive your baseball career. 17621 / 18999 / 16694 / 18043 / 16404.
