a.r.i.a | absolutely ridiculous innovation for athletes
"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." - Marilyn Monroe
Absolutely Ridiculous aka ARiA Collective is a sports innovation collective in Nashville, Tennessee. Lead by unexpected artists and athletes, we push the boundaries of sports innovation by challenging the imagination. Our specialty is bringing people, places and things to life in glove form through functional art fit for big league play. We've united the top designers, leather craftsmen, and artists to be lead by some of the world's most notable athletes to reimagine baseball and softball gloves by eliminating current industry limitations.
We go about the design and craftsmanship of our gloves a little differently. Using the finest materials, discovering new patterns and design styles treating them like architecture with blueprints, while keeping the integrity and performance of the glove, we aim to push the boundaries of glove design. Our team is made up of baseball players, and there's nothing that we know better than the baseball glove.
Every month we drop a new limited edition design to keep things fresh and encourage continuous imagination and innovation.
Each of our limited edition gloves are pre-orders to assure that your glove fits your needs. You pick the size, throwing hand, softball or baseball pocket, and web and our glove artists custom make it for you.
