LEATHER HEAD footballs are designed and made one at a time in our New Jersey workshop. This allows us to control every facet of the process. Control means quality, accuracy, and speed. It means that we can do single item custom orders as well as large scale production runs. Since we’re not using over seas manufacturers, or shipping from the eastern hemisphere, we can also offer unsurpassed speed and security. Watch the video here to see how we make them.
We make three sizes:
Regular and Official Size, and a plush filled pee wee ball.
Regular LEATHER HEAD footballs are designed to be slightly smaller than an NFL ball.
We wanted to create an exceptional ball that the average size person could hold and throw.
Regular LEATHER HEAD footballs are about 19.5 inches around the middle, which is the standard size of a "youth" football.
Official Size LEATHER HEAD footballs are for bigger hands. They're the same size as the official NFL football. They're made from the same extraordinary leathers that we use in our regular size footballs.
We have a several sources of leather. We prefer American tanned leather and we work directly with a handful of tanneries. We also work with large scale suppliers of garment and fashion leathers.
LEATHER HEAD footballs make great gifts. Items can be monogrammed, laser engraved or even branded with a custom branding iron. See our custom page for details and pricing.

That's horrible! The good news is that we offer lifetime bladder and lace replacement. Should the ball's bladder stop holding air, send it back and we'll replace the bladder for free.
Note: Some air loss over time is normal for all inflated balls. They can easily be re-inflated with a hand pump and inflation needle.
