The iconic A2000 line from Wilson is back and as great as it’s ever been; and with the added SuperSkin™, they’re also lighter, easier to break-in and more durable. These gloves from Wilson have grown into a well-known and reliable line – players that demand the familiarity and quality of these gloves, can rest assured knowing that Wilson has released these gloves with the quality those players expect and then some.
The 1788SS is 11.25” in length and designed for the elite middle infielder that prefers a short glove and very shallow pocket. This glove features Wilson’s H-web pattern, which is a shallow, durable design – for a consistent, long-lasting feel in the pocket and quick transitions.
The shell is made of a combination of Wilson’s Pro Stock leather and SuperSkin™ synthetic material. The man-madeSuperSkin™ added to the shell provides maximum durability against inclement weather conditions and wear-and-tear, as well as making it lighter-weight and easier to mold to the player’s desired pocket.
The palm and lacing are composed of Wilson’s high-end Pro Stock leather. This leather is one of the highest quality hides Wilson has available for construction and certainly lives up to the A2000 tradition. This glove also features Wilson’s “Top-Shelf Dual Welting”, which takes two strips of leather, placed along the back of the fingers for a quick break-in and long-lasting pocket.
The hand opening features a conventional, open back with a laced binding. The conventional back allows for extra ventilation, while the laced binding provides a secure and snug fit – keeping the glove in place, even during the toughest plays. Additionally, the inside has been lined with Wilson’s Dri-Lex, moisture-wicking material to keep the leather dry and a comfortable feel.
The SuperSkin™ material speeds up the break-in process for the player that is anxious to get the glove out on the field. The A2000 SuperSkin™ line will arrive stiff, but break-in rather quickly due to the pliability of the SuperSkin™.
It's the best glove I've found for my son. It provides comfort, and I love the way that it performs so far.Review by Matt (Posted on 11/26/2016)
This is a great glove, it's light, and high quality. The leather is really nice, it is ver smooth, and the lace is okay. This glove is stiff, but that is to expect with a high quality glove. Make sure to buy this glove a month before the season because it is not game ready right out of the box. The super skin is really nice it makes the glove feel really light and is water resistant so you can use it in the rain and it won't ruin the leather. Overall this is a really high quality glove and is good for the serious player. If you are wanting a new glove and are trying to choose between Rawlings and Wilson, definitely go with the wilson. It is a decision, I will never regret.Review by dom (Posted on 11/20/2016)

Used for my freshman year but sold to a friend to buy an a2k datdude. So far this A2000 model is the best available in my opinon. Especially when your play second base maybe even shortstop. Tremendous leather quality, held its shape after one season, and don't think its going to lose it any time soon.
