Saw that Mizuno had a new variant of the Global Elite called the GE Jinama and was wondering what are the differences between this series of Global Elites and the other current Global Elites on the market. So if anyone has any insight on these glove, please chime in and let me know!

I believe it has to do with the Leather source.

Jinama Leather is a special region of leather in Japan. These info are widely available when you google the word "Jinama".

The new member from Japan might be able to charm in on this.

Hi

I feel I have to reply this ( ´∀` )

Jinama"地生" basically has the same meaning with "WAGYU", which means it's domestic leather of Japan. It is tanned in Japan and most importantly, the leather is taken from bulls or cows well raised in Japan so the tannery can pick up the best hide by their own hand.
In Japan, it is considered to be better than the leather imported from outside the country.

You can check the page. It's the tannery that makes it.
This factory is fairly famous in Japan and provides leather to many many glove makers such as Mizuno, Hatakeyama...
