Neumann Official Gloves No Longer Being Made Opens Doors to Other SuppliersAug 30th, 2023
Outdoor sports officials rely on gloves to keep their hands warm and to perform officiating-specific functions.
Neumann gloves were made specifically for sports officials in 3 styles. The Neumann brand was a brand in the Schutt line, under the Kranos Corporation.
Due to ongoing issues with Kranos and a bankruptcy and liquidation in 2020, it appears, at least for now, that Neumann gloves will no longer be made or be available.
For those of you who liked their gloves, you’ll find consolation that 7 new gloves are available from multiple brands including mainstay Under Armour and Manzella as well as another new company Industrious Handwear.
