What's the differences between speed drive gloves and gloves without speed drive?

Use google chrome to translate pages. It's not perfect, but it gives a pretty good idea of the options.

I noticed that the Mizuno Pro custom Speed Drive gloves are made in China and the non Speed Drive gloves are made in Japan. If I can figure out a way to place and order I'll definitely get a non Speed Drive model. The Ichiro model is at the top of my list even though I'm not a fan of his. I just like the silver runbird logo on the wrist and on the back of the web.

The Speed Drive models and 4D models before them, are their assembly line gloves (made in Shaghai, for some time).
The Mizuno Pro's that are made in Japan by one of the few craftsman still working there are (or at least used to be) totally handmade by one single Mizuno master craftsman, from the selection and cutting of the actual leather all the way through the final lacing.

They are really incredible gloves, and am very happy to have a couple in my possession.
