We were the first to introduce cell phone gloves back in 2008 and we ran out of gloves before Christmas. Each year since we doubled our stock and we continued to run out of stock.
Already this year we surpassed last year’s sales. We’ve added new lines like ISOTONER to maintain a good supply and we also expanded our touch-screen models due to the popularity of tablets.
Keep in mind that there are two types of cell-phone gloves. One version has removable fingertip and thumb tops (shown above) which can be used with Blackberry type keyboards and the other versions are exclusive to touch-screens and contain conductive fibers on the finger tips (shown below). The models with removable fingertip tops can be used with both types of keyboard and touch-screen devices.
My point!Don’t wait to buy cell phone gloves as a gift or stocking stuffer. They will sell out again even though we have the largest selection and largest inventory.
Since GO Gloves is customer driven and a one-stop shop for great gloves, this year we are proud to announce that we are now an authorized ISOTONER glove retailer. We will add each model as they hit our warehouse – just in time for holiday sales.
As you can expect, we declined to stock the TOTES/ISOTONER line of slippers and boots. After all, we are just glove experts.
Gloves have always been the ideal stocking stuffer. After all, it is Winter.
This season our glove sales have been exceptional again. Maybe it’s the weather; maybe the economy is improving but one thing is for real; Winter Gloves are HOT! In fact, we are running out of models well before previous years.
Here’s a few links to help you find the perfect winter glove or gift. And remember, this is the last week for Standard Shipping.
We are going into our 3rd Winter selling season with the Freehand Gloves and they are simply genius. You well know that taking your gloves off to text while outside is pure torture – and totally unnecessary.
That’s why Freehands gloves are perfect. You can choose from several models including leather and the gloves feature finger caps on your index finger and thumb, which you can flip back when your need to access your phone.
Your can always consider convertible mittens but the Freehands Gloves are more functional for texting while using your smart phone.
I’m sorry for my absence here but all I can say is WOW. Our Holiday sales were overwhelming and we literally worked around the clock through December processing glove orders. We thank all of you for your support and your business.
Another success story was the Caiman Deerskin Gloves. (pictured) Besides making them in Men’s, Women’s, and children sizes, they are popular due to their warmth and comfort. My hat goes off to the guys at Caiman since they allow us to sell them to you at a great price, too. You also need to check out the other Caiman glove models.
I could say more but I’m just happy to be back here and feel fortunate and grateful for your support.
In my next posts, I’m thinking about talking about trends I’m seeing in glove technology and glove products. Looks to me like another interesting year in Gloves.
Based on recent phone calls, I feel obliged to repeat my post from last year below:
It amazes me that most shoppers looking for a real winter glove fail to purchase Waterproof gloves. I’m not talking about fine fashion lined leather gloves; I’m referring to the winter gloves you wear during outdoor activities such as shoveling snow, sledding, skiing, or hiking. The same applies to winter construction and work gloves.
Thermal lined gloves are a must have and will keep you warm but once the lining becomes wet, your hands will freeze. Regarding linings look for a branded lining like Gore-Tex or HeatKeep just to name a few. A branded lining on the label generally indicates that the manufacturer has made an extra effort to provide warmth. You should also look for a knit wrist or a wrist closure to keep out snow, rain and wind. Lastly, make sure the gloves are WATERPROOF or they will not be cold proof.
These ski gloves are the premier winter sport gloves from Grandoe, made by fifth generation glove makers for more than a century.
You can select from over 1 million color combination’s, color match your ski outfit, never loose your gloves again with ID personalization, and even personalize your gloves with your own name, your nickname or your company name.
Also, you will receive a FREE double sided fleece embroidered travel and storage bag with each order as a thank you.
Order them by December 1st for Christmas delivery.

This January 28th release by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission regards a voluntary recall of Primovolta Warming Gloves made by Outdoor Research of Seattle, Washington. Apparently, the electric heating pad can short circuit and overheat.
We sell a competing brand of Heated Gloves (shown) and Heated Mittens but these are not associated with the recall. My guess is that the heating elements are located around the palm of the recalled gloves which receive a great amount of strain and stress.
I know OR and they are a very respectable company and known for quality gloves.
Of interest, the heating elements in our Heated Gloves and Mittens are contained in the back side (non-palm side) of the gloves to avoid damage. But you can never win because people complain they don’t get hot enough. However, at $25 bucks verses $260.00, I think they work fine providing a safe and comfortable room temperature. What do you think? (Click on the Title to go to the release)
