Nokona’s elite performance, ready-for-play, position-specific series. The X2 Elite™ is made with Nokona’s proprietary top-grain Stampede™ Steerhide and Kangaroo leathers, so that minimal break-in is needed, but the glove has great structure and maintains its shape. A perfect combination of top quality and high performance.
This isn't my first ball glove, but it is my first 1B mitt. I also own a Nokona Generations 12.75" outfielders glove. This glove is the nicest, highest quality glove I've used. It take a couple days to break in, but is just fine for practice right out of the box. If you're serious about having a top quality 1B mitt, look no further. This one is it.
