These gloves from an actual company called Gloveworks have popped up lately. They have moderately priced custom gloves that look decent. But now on their social media they seem to be closing some sort of partnership with Atoms Japan. Atoms is an extremely high quality custom glove company which I believe can only be ordered in Japan. I have a suspicion that Gloveworks may sign a deal to bring Atoms to the US under the Gloveworks name. If so, that would be awesome to have the opportunity to get one of those gloves. Anybody else have an ideas of what this partnership might entail?

I'm pretty sure that they will bring over some mid level quality glove. Top quality gloves in japan go for $500 to $600 and I doubt the usa market will pay those prices for a brand they don't know about even if they quality is great. I buy my gloves from either swallow sports or one of three sporting goods companies that are on rakuten that I have had good transactions with.

Two companies I have never heard about.

What's different about either one of them? Probably the same factory with just another logo.

Supposedly Atoms were contracted by Nike and made their gloves in Japan which included the shado elite j and all of the PE gloves. Their gloves retail for $540 and are nicer than rawlings gloves made in the Philippines or Wilson gloves made in Vietnam.

Atoms are very high quality. So even if they slap a Gloveworks logo on an Atoms glove.... I would be very interested.
