This year’s color features a sharp contrast of Jet Black and Walnut, giving the player a baseball glove as good looking as their backhanded grab deep in the hole. All the Wilson A2K’s features work together to provide the same core benefit—a truly long lasting glove that breaks in as quickly as possible.
2X PALM CONSTRUCTION: A thin, strategically cut piece of leather is placed between the palm liner and outer shell, providing maximum pocket stability and a quicker break in.
3X MORE CRAFTSMAN SHAPING: A master technician spends 3x more time pounding and shaping your A2K Baseball Glove by hand at the factory—reducing break in time for you.
PRO STOCK SELECT LEATHER: The top 5% of Pro Stock hides are triple sorted for consistency and flawlessness—these become tanned specifically for the A2K.
ROLLED DUAL-WELTING: Thin strips of Pro Stock leather are skived thin and rolled to provide long lasting shape, but allowing for a quicker break in.
