About

nailed gloves are designed by a woman, for the modern lady golfer.

Are you a woman, or do you know a woman, that won't compromise style over function on the golf course?

I am the creator of nailed tip-free golf gloves, and I am so excited to share with you my exquisitely designed glove. FINALLY, a high quality golf glove created especially for ladies.  

I am passionate about the individual challenge of the game of golf. I am passionate about having quality in all areas of life. I am passionate about making a difference in life and in this awesome game we love.

I am not petite, so standard closed-tipped gloves don't fit my long fingers. I've tried wearing men's gloves, but they are oversized and ill-fitting. I've tried the "lady" half gloves, which do nothing to assist with gripping the club, plus the design and material are mostly inferior.

I only started golfing 10 years ago, however when I started, I immediately became hooked on this amazingly fun, challenging, and frustrating game. After repeatedly snapping fingernails from the pressure of the closed-tip gloves, I started cutting the tips off, and my problem was solved! I was instantly inspired to bring this idea to market, for women of all ages, shapes, and sizes, because this sport is dominantly designed by, and for men. I believe women deserve beautiful, functional, and premium golf products.

Comfort and fit is key to playing the best you can. An often neglected piece of equipment, is the golf glove. An ill-fitting glove can negatively impact your game. nailed gloves are 'tip-free'. nailed gloves offer a unique fit and function and quality, that does NOT currently exist in today's market.

nailed golf glove features:

  • Tip-free fingers allow beautiful fingernails to be seen and not compromised by glove pressure

  • Full palm and finger coverage help grip the club & protect against callouses and blisters

  • Made of 100% cabretta (pearl white sheep) leather for soft & luxurious feel

  • Tab flap with nailed logo provides a precise fit for all hands

  • Lightweight panels strategically position between fingers and on knuckle for comfort, flexibility & enhanced breathability

  • Tapered tip-free fingers for ultimate fit & comfort

  • Comfortable elastic wrist

  • Packaged in specialized zippered pouch to store gloves between rounds to retain optimal softness and keep it looking & feeling like new longer

  • Available in 4 sizes for left & right hands: Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large

  • Long fingers and/or long finger nails have unlimited room/length not provided for in a standard closed-tip glove

  • An amazing high quality unique gift for any occasion

    nailed gloves will be sold online on my website and in select country club pro shops throughout Canada and the USA. Initial promotion will be on social media platforms. I've also had lots of interest from independent women golf apparel designers/entrepreneurs to give my product exposure on their website & catalogues, with models wearing my nailed gloves. I love that lady golfers are forming a sisterhood supporting & empowering each other wherever possible.

    While I am not looking to fund my entire project with this Kickstarter campaign target, I do believe that Kickstarter is key to successfully launching my nailed glove with elegance and style.

    A successful Kickstarter campaign will enable me to move forward with the elegant & functional packaging all nailed gloves will be distributed in. I am designing a specialized zippered pouch that is not only elegant, but also functional to store the glove in between rounds, and extending the life of your nailed glove. I am also designing elegant gift/presentation boxes for all gloves bought in packages or 3 or more. I do believe with presentation/packaging, and making a luxurious first impression, is key to the success of nailed gloves.

  

All moneys pledged in excess of the target, will enable me to immediately order the second batch of gloves in fun new colours on the panels between fingers! This is a must! Hello! Every fashionable woman loves to match her gloves & accessories with her awesome outfits! :-)

When we sell out of all pledge packages, or are blessed to receive some large pledges, that will go towards RID and trademark registrations. 

I also believe that a successful Kickstarter campaign, because of your pledges, will bring this beautiful product to women across the globe. I need as many of you ladies here as possible, to see first hand, the awesome benefits, fit & luxuriousness of nailed gloves. And I know that when you do, you will then spread the word. Word of mouth is powerful!

My goal is to ship out over 500 gloves to you pledgers when my bulk order arrives in December!

Be part of this exciting movement, whether you are a modern lady golfer, or if you want to provide unique gift to a special lady golfer in your life!

Your support is going to go a long way to help nailed gloves reach the finish line in style! I've created pledge packs that offer amazing high value for each of your dollar's pledged.

I am truly grateful for your support. Thank you. Shelley

 

 

Risks and challenges

When I first started this journey, juggling my regular 9 to 5 administration job while learning the nuances of becoming an entrepreneur, designing my gloves, selecting the manufacturer, selecting high quality materials, was very challenging, albeit very rewarding.

My major challenge to date has been funding. I had originally intended to launch with 3 different colour gloves, however, because I am self-funding this venture, mounting costs are limiting me to only start out with the standard white & black colour tip-free glove.

Also part of the funding issue is the decision to register ID or trademark logos. Selling out all pledges would take care of all of this!!

It's been an exciting journey commercializing my product for on-time delivery, and I am so happy to share the results with you across the globe.
