Absolutely Ridiculous Gloves

Nashville, TN USA

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." - Marilyn Monroe

collaboration

Absolutely Ridiculous LLC aka Absolutely Ridiculous Innovation for Athletes aka ARiA Collective;

Against the grain, specializing in collaborations that connect two unlikely worlds creating something that has never been seen before.

The collective aims to challenge the norm in sports and change the way that we all look at the gear we use and our impact on the game, culture and society. This is sports reimagined. Where imagination becomes reality.

mission

To give the player a voice on the field while making the game more fun and impactful for the next generation of athletes and fans.

art

Every glove is treated with the same care as the first one. Each glove made is a hand crafted piece of functional art made by ✘. Art that can be displayed and collected if you choose, but made with intent to be used at every level of play from a back yard toss to the big leagues.

quality

The quality is on par with the top performing gloves on the market fit for professional play. That's a standard that we promise to maintain and the pro players using our gloves is further proof of the quality standards we meet. However, the goal isn't to compete against other glove brands, the goal is to have the most unique gloves in the world to make the game a little more fun and personalized. See for yourself. We stand behind our quality as baseball and softball players ourselves.

impact

Every LE glove sold shares revenue with a player chosen 501(c)3 charitable cause, and also a player. On average, $145 of every glove goes to a charity, and to a player to support their athletic endeavors. Why is this buried at the bottom of a page that we know very few will ever read? Because we don't do this as a marketing gimmick, we do this because it's the right thing, and nobody else is.
