After teasing the idea for about a year, Wilson has just added colored Superskin to their custom builder. There are now four total Superskin colors available. Here are the three new options:
- Royal Blue
Just a few facts on Superskin:
- Superskin is NOT leather. Superskin is a microfiber.
- Superskin is half the weight of leather.
- Superskin is twice as strong as leather. That may be true, as SS gloves have seems to last a bit longer than all leather gloves.
Before you jump to buy one of these new Superskin colors, they are a little softer to touch than the traditional black Superskin. Just a tidbit before you commit to buying.
Let’s show you what these new colors of Superskin look like in the builder.
You can see the true color of red Superskin in our images of Hanley’s glove. Wilson also has a stock model with red Superskin called the Aso’s Lab LE A2000 1786 Scarlet Superskin.
The blue Superskin looks very dark in this picture, but it is actually pretty bright and light-colored, more like a royal color. Below is a picture of another Glove Wilson offers currently with blue Super Skin. It is an Aso’s Lab LE A2000 1786 Royal Super Skin, the same Superskin offered on the customizer (not sure why the colors are so different, but the true color is royal):
White leather always gets dirty and is impossible to clean, but Superskin is water-resistant, so you can easily clean the white Superskin. Here is another look:
As for What Pros Wear, Hanley had been Wilson’s “guinea pig” for the colored Superskin since he was in the OF in 2015 and now at 1B in 2016:
The colored Superskin is a great addition by Wilson. If you are looking for a flashy glove that is fairly light, go for your favorite color of Superskin.
