taco glove

"Unlike anything I've ever seen before."

From the Mind of ✘, and crafted by Bandito. Over 2 years of design and imagination brought to life to create something never seen before.

idea

Inspired by the taco curve of the first base glove and paying tribute to the oppo taco.

the glove 

Crafted using the finest Kip Leather and precisely stitched to bring the taco alive on the field. Following the natural curve of the first base glove, the Taco Glove features lettuce, tomato and cheese shined embroidery laid over a green lettuce kip leather strip atop a taco tan kip leather taco shell. The taco shell features brown grain embroidery and the official "the players glove" stamping.

A finger pad hand pressed from Taco Bandito candy skull tattoos, and a wrist strap hand pressed with the full Taco Bandito, ARiA Taco shop, design.

On the thumb is the official ARiA X logo in ARiA orange and the palm features the taco meat with ARiA stampings. Every catch finishes it off with a little sour cream that the baseball represents. 

Each glove is hand signed and numbered by ✘ to assure it's an official Limited Edition Absolutely Ridiculous glove.

This glove was engineered to be fit for a big league player, but used at any level.
