Very good gloves, great price

I bought these gloves as an upgrade from my old pair of Ringside Super Bag Gloves, which were falling apart after a year of constant use. I've been boxing for about 2.5 years now, and recently developed pains in my wrist, thumb and middle knuckles, so I was looking for a glove that would provide superior support and thicker padding. So far I haven't been disappointed with the Lonsdales (all three injuries seem to have gotten better). The gloves do take some getting used to, though... the molded padding fit nicely on the fingers and is comfortable, but is more rounded than cheaper (layered) bag gloves, with the result that - at first, at least - punches often glance off the heavy bag or mitts (on the plus side, this has made me more conscious of proper form and landing solidly). The elastic wrist collars allow for tighter/better support, but are a little tough to close without help. The attached thumb is also an improvement, though less important on a bag glove than for sparring, which is where the thumb injuries seem to be most common. One downside to these gloves is that the thumbs are somewht stiff and tend to press into the fleshy part of the hand at the base of the thumb, which is distracting and little uncomfortable but so far hasn't worsened my thumb injury. All in all, these gloves are a very good buy (especially at this price) if you're looking to step up to a more comfortable, better fitting model.
