4.0 out of 5 stars Decent pair, February 27, 2006
This review is from: Everlast Pro Style Training Gloves (Sports)
First I want to make a slight correction to the previous reviewer's text: the size/weight of the gloves doesn't change according to the size of your hand but, rather, to the size of you, the user of the gloves. If you are an average sized male you will be hard pressed to find a sparring partner if you only have 10oz gloves: nobody in their right minds would agree to spar with you because with such small gloves the risk of injuring the receiver of the blows goes way up. Hence 16oz is the standard size for sparring gloves. Women can use 14oz and children 14oz and 12oz depending on how big they are. The point with heavier/bigger gloves is to protect your training partner.

Anyway, on with the review: these are good, all-around sparring gloves. Their over-all quality is quite good and even the velcros are done well so you could use these for thai boxing as well without scratching your partner's neck and shoulders when clinching. However, I found that when you put more power behind your punches your knuckles tend to come through a bit so they're not the safest gloves around. Still they are good enough for pretty much anybody who's looking for a good pair of gloves for sparring.

I recommend that you get a separate pair of bag gloves or 10oz gloves for bag and mitt work since hitting the heavy bag and focus mitts harden the leather which, again, makes the gloves more dangerous to use in sparring. Remember to wrap your hands and wrists when hitting the heavy bag in order to avoid knuckle, wrist, and shoulder injuries.

Everlast is a good company and for the most part they make quality products. These gloves do what they are supposed to do.

thanks for the great info! I'm in a wheelchair and i want to get good boxing gloves & a heavy bag. my hands are very precious to me so I can't risk any injury - but being sore is ok. i have large hands - so 10 oz is best? the dude at Sports Authority said to go for a thinner leather glove. wuddyathink?

These are great gloves. They are tight fitting and very comfortable. Great for hitting my bag, I'm a big fan and it gives a great combination of cardio workout with my jump rope. Here is the jump rope I also use: CSX Jump Rope & Free Training Workout eBook
