Banana Tan

Banana Tan Crunch is a very supple yet sturdy cowhide first developed by Nokona in the 1970’s. For 2014, Nokona is bringing back one of its most recognizable leathers. With the durability demanded of all Nokona gloves, Banana Tan also allows for a quick break-in period.


Nokona has perfected the art of combining kangaroo and cowhides to form lightweight baseball gloves. Nokona's Kangaroo baseball gloves are both amazingly strong and lightweight, increasing the durability. Nokona's Walnut Cowhide baseball glove leather adds the body and form needed to maintain a solid pocket and overall fit.


Inspired by Nokona’s history of handcrafting ball gloves in America for over 80 years, the proprietary Walnut Crunch™ leather in the Walnut™ series is a signature Nokona – this glove provides great stability, flexibility, and durability. The Classics have been updated with a new look that highlights the gloves’ modern features, while paying tribute to Nokona’s long-standing baseball heritage.
