Palmside foam overlaid reinforcements are sewn up the fingers and partially up the thumb and vertically at the center of the palm. PVC reinforcements are sewn on the backside fingers, tip of the thumb and across the knuckle area. Additionally, the glove features fourchettes and an elasticized wristband with “Reusch” printed across a PVC tab closure which is secured by means of hook and loop fabric. The item shows design for use in sports as a soccer goalie glove.

The applicable subheading for the glove will be 6116.93.0800, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts, knitted or crocheted: other: of synthetic fibers: other gloves, mittens and mitts, all the foregoing specially designed for use in sports, including ski and snowmobile gloves, mittens and mitts.
