About Cutters Gloves
Cutters develops, manufactures, distributes and markets an industry leading line of football gloves and accessories as well as other sports gloves for the baseball, fitness, golf and soccer markets.  True glove experts, Cutters Gloves, made with their exclusive C-TACK(tm) Performance Grip Material, are crafted from the highest quality materials for the best performance and durability. Other gloves may look similar, but the silicon application that most other companies use on their gloves results in an inferior grip, and a grip that will peel off, wear out more quickly, and that does not self-restore.  An industry leader in the US and Canada, Cutters Gloves are also sold in 15 countries worldwide.
