Boring to Bold: How Wild Golf Is Revolutionizing Coloured Golf Gloves

Golf gloves are undergoing a colourful evolution, transforming from simple, practical leather accessories into vibrant statements of personality & style on the golf course. At the forefront of this revolution is Wild Golf, a brand that's paving the way for the popularity of colored golf gloves.

The Origins of the White Golf Glove

The origins of the golf glove can be traced back to the early days of the sport, but when was the first golf glove used? There actually isn't a defined inventor or invention date for golf gloves, but they began being marketed in the 1880s. Players' hands would blister after extensive play, and the addition of protective gloves would help resolve this. The closest thing to an invention date we found was in 1885 when Rawlings patented a baseball glove that was reported to be marketed at and used by golfers at the time.
For decades, leather golf gloves have been worn for practical purposes rather than fashion. As golf evolved into a more formalized game in the 19th century, the use of gloves became commonplace among professional players. In 1942, a pro golfer named Sneed, who played alongside legends like Ben Hogan, became the first golfer to win a pro tournament using a golf glove.
Traditionally, golf gloves have been made from white leather, a color choice that serves both practical and cultural purposes. White leather has been preferred for its association with cleanliness, purity, and tradition – qualities that align with the etiquette, decorum, and exclusivity of the sport. A pure white golf glove was a symbol of wealth and status. As a result, white golf gloves became the standard attire for all golfers. Black and brown golf gloves were also popular for their ease of production and the practical aspect of not showing wear and dirt.

Wild Golf: Embracing Boldness and Individuality

“We help golfers be exciting and confident players by creating accessories that empower them to express their personality and play their best golf.”
However, brands nowadays, like Wild Golf, recognize the changes in golf as a sport and those who play it. We see the golf course as a place to express yourself and be the best version of you. So, we are challenging this tradition of white or black golf gloves by creating a range of colorful and daring options for golfers who want to express their personality on the course. With colors ranging from vibrant pinks to bold blues and eye-catching fruit salad patterns, Wild Golf gloves are becoming synonymous with style and individuality.
