Negative cut goalkeeper gloves and the hybrid cut gloves have become increasingly popular over the past few years, especially across much of Europe. They are similar to the flat cut goalie gloves, in that they use a single piece of latex attached to the backhand via gussets. The key difference is that the stitching on negative cut goalkeeper gloves, which we call gussets, is actually located inside the goalie glove.
This provides a much tighter, snugger fit, with control of the ball be maximized which most keepers feel give them a true sense of feeling on the ball during shot stopping. Just make sure you know, the negative cut gloves will feel tighter to goalkeepers who used to a much looser style of goalie gloves similar to flat cut or rolled finger cut.
