For 75 years, SSK has been a worldwide leader in baseball. We take great pride in our heritage, quality, and craftsmanship. Our SSK Gloves are hand stitched and made with some of the most premium leathers available. Beginning at our primary tannery in Japan, where our leather and lace is prepped, tanned, and cut, it is then shipped for assembly to a factory we own. This is an important note as we are one of the very few to own our own glove factory, meaning quality and craftsmanship is the single most important aspect of our gloves. We are proud of the long-standing tradition of SSK Gloves and honor it every day with our current glove lines.
