Selsport are well known for their football gloves and clothing and accessories ranges.The Wrappa range of goalkeeper gloves has been around since 1998 and each of the five models (Aqua, Classic, Protect FP< Phantom and Negative Surround) have their own qualities. I have personally owned the Selsport Wrappa 'Classic' design for around 6 months now and have used them fairly regularly for an hour or two at a time. Wearing goalkeeper gloves for long periods of time can be a real pain, but the Selsport Wrappa Clssic's make the experience all the more bearable.
The 'Classic' design is suitable for the whole range of conditions, whether you wish to use them indoors or during the driving rain of the British weather. performance is never effected due to weather conditions and so they are a very versatile pair of gloves. The gloves are made from Latex and Selsport have introduced 'Giga Grip' technology which aides the wearer in wet conditions by creating a chemical reaction within the Latex to increase effectiveness of the grip and also helping the lifespan of the gloves. The back of the gloves are finished in a grooved Latex which offers grip when punching the ball and also gives additional flexibility when clenching the fist. The Selsport Wrappa Classic's also have a unique three point wrist strap which offers greater protection and support to the wrist than their previous models.
The image of the gloves is also a major selling point for consumers of sports goods and I would say the Selsport Wrappa range won't be losing any fans with the clean lines of the Classic design. The Selsport logo and branding is all over the back of the gloves and on the unique wrist strap. The gloves are completely white with the black Selsport detailing on them. There is one small area of red on the wrist strap but it would be wrong to suggest these gloves are subtle in any way! Wearing the gloves is a pleasure, with their comfortable feel. Hands will always begin to feel sweaty after prolonged periods of wear, but with the Selsport Classic's I find my hands will withstand longer periods of wear without discomfort. The feel of the ball in the gloves is a key aspect for anyone looking to buy new gloves, and with this pair I am reassured by both the protection against impact and the accurate touch of the ball.
Available for around the £50 mark they are reasonably well priced and as they are still appearing to offer to last me for many months/years yet, I would say they are a product built to last.
This is a review in particular of the Selsport Wrappa classic gloves, these are one of my favourite pairs of goalkeeper gloves (I have over 30 pairs), rather than being based on one of the big names, these are renowned by keepers as being well made with the emphasis on providing support to your game rather than looking flashy on the pitch.
I bought these from Just-Keepers.com for £23.99 a while ago, they've since reduced in price slightly but i'm not quibbling as these are a really good pair that I wear on wet days as they grip better than many other gloves on the market and it really does make a difference.
The gloves have a foam palm which means when the ball comes at you, you can get some grip on it whatever the conditions if you can get a whole glove on the ball. The gloves are comfortable, unlike some, they seem to absorb sweat and it doesn't come running out of the glove. They feel nice and padded meaning that even if you can't catch it, or get the ball fully you feel secure throwing your hands at it, as a touch is often enough to deflect the ball out of play.
looks wise I like these gloves simply because they say nothing about you as a player, they support you, rather than the other way around, often you see a keeper in a flashy pair of gloves (I do have some of these too) and they've obviously spent more time shopping than practicing, their looks match their quality, workmanlike, does the job and smart but understated, they are white on one sid with the wording on the wrist and on your thumb finger.
I used to like white gloves when Italian keepers wore them and I do think they have some effect in that they are visible on all surfaces, except in February when the ground gets hard and icy.
Overall these are a solid effort, good 4 out of 5 as they are good quality, well crafted, they are comfortable, look good, have aided my game in giving me confidence to throw myself at anything knowing my hands are really well padded.
Good effort from Selsport, you can get your name stitched in for a price, but i'd say leave that to the big-time charlies and spend your money on something more appropriate.

Well to start this entry off im a top class goalkeeper so gloves are irelevant. but to be serious selsport gloves are the only gloves i have had that im comfortable with. they come in all different condition glove e.g winter, aqua summer, hard ground, so there is a glove for all seasons and conditions, as a keeper i reccomend using the gloves for a season then buying new pairs, and droppin your old pair down to training gloves. selsport gloves hold together well and are made with top qaulity latex foam, like all gloves they need good care, its fine to wash gloves in warm water but you must leave them to dry under room temperature and not alot higher or you will notice tem perish alot faster. i play for my local side and selsport gloves could be what you need trust me try them out next time you buy a new pair make sure you choose the glove to the condition of your pitch and your usual weather for your area.(usually cold and wet i bet) hope this helps a bit.
Well ever since the first wrappa (as pictured) right up to last year's model Selsport have had a glove that is right up there with the best. Appearance - the current model has a relatively plain, classic white look, but the ribbed textured back hand and wrist strap gives the glove quite an aggressive, robust appeal that makes the hand look a little larger than it is. Fit - the feel of the glove with the roll finger, is quite tight, but the body of the glove is flexible enough to be comfortable even straight out of the wallet. The bandage wrist entry is a small bid wider than traditional models from other makers, but gives a secure feeling to the glove, especially with the 3 velcro strap. Performance - with almost 20 years as a keeper the "Supersoft Ultimate Grip System" latex is the best I have ever worn in the wet. Even after a whole season's wear I was still impressed by the performance of the glove. In the dry I prefer to dampen the palms a little, but in any condition these are up there with the top gloves from adidas or sondico. Only perhaps some of the Super Soft Foam compounds from reusch or uhlsport can rival the UPS in the wet, but they do not offer the durability or consistency of the Selsport. Only downside in my experience was some weak stitching in my first pair some 2 years ago which has not occurred with my more recent purchases. Again care should be taken to look after the gloves if you want them to last the whole session, but that should not be a problem with these. If you can find a retailer (more readily available online than on the height street) there will be plenty of variants to find one to suit you. The range includes a flat palm version, gloves with internal latex grip, and also now fleece and wet weather versions. Selsport is already used by a number of professional goalkeepers at various levels am I am sure that this will continue amongst the ranks amateur and Sunday l
eague players too.
