Excellent considering the price

I bought these gloves in the 16 oz. size about 3 months ago and am very pleased w/ them so far, mostly due to the low price and what I use them for. I only get to spar two or three times a month for karate/kickboxing. The gloves are extremely soft and I don't worry at all about injuring my sparring partner w/ them. I don't think I'd find a better sparring glove for this price.

That being said, the big drawback for me is how huge/stocky the gloves are; I usually keep both hands up in my normal stance, but keeping up the big bulk of the gloves leaves my body open no matter how hard I try to keep the elbows in. I've started to learn to use the shell-style stance in order to make them work out for me during sparring, so in essence, I've had to change up my style in order to adapt to the gloves. Whatever -- it works for me, I don't mind it, and I didn't break my pockets on something else. However, for someone more serious about boxing/mma/fighting, these gloves might be problematic for the reason I just described.

When these eventually fall apart me, I'll spend more on a better pair. The point is that for my purposes, I'm really happy with these gloves.

great for average joes

I think these are nice gloves. when you consider that they can be delivered to your door for 22.00, they are real nice gloves. I have about 1 yr boxing/american style kick boxing experience and for my level they work fine. They are well padded and soften up the more you break them in. I am hardly the most athletically gifted fighter so I tend to use my gloves a lot for defense, and these work wonders for blocking kicks and punches----due to the padding and sheer size of the glove. Maybe a more experienced or talented fighter might want something different, but they will suit a weekend warrior just fine. at this price you can afford to pick them up as back up gloves and/or for that friend who wants you to teach them boxing/kickboxing.

Zero out of ten

Altough we are a real boxing gym, we do have a kickboxer fitness class. I bought two pair of these gloves, I won't sell them for any more than they cost me. It cost me more to send them back. Do not waiste your money, there not even good cheap gloves!

Great gloves for sparring. Super soft for your hands...and your partners face. Do not do bag work with these. You will destroy the gloves. The price is right.

Hey Chuck - these are good to spar with and for light bag work. If you intend to do repeated bag work I recommend a pair of gloves with a bit more padding and firmness, like these: bx-bg-313

Extra soft?

These are called extra soft? if i get these am i sacrificing durability and strength for comfort? in other words, are these things going to fall apart on me? I really only go to the gym two, maybe three times a week and train on the bag.

These are for Sparing not bag work. bag gloves are made with a firmer and different foam, to withstand the repeated blows that come from doing bag work. these are made with the intention of hitting an opponent. different tools for different jobs.

Boxing Gloves Expert FAQs
  1. What type of boxing gloves should I get?

    Boxing gloves are constructed to enhance different aspects of your game. Some gloves are designed to be small and compact and place more of the glove weight toward the wrist, increasing speed and impact. Protection is minimized, but punching power is increased. If your primary focus is on punching power, this is a good choice (consider the Cleto Reyes brand). Other gloves do the exact opposite, favoring more padding over the knuckles. Boxers that have had hand injuries or who wish to be mindful of safety prefer gloves that have extra padding over the knuckles. Gloves that are fluffier also make for better defensive tools as they can cover more surface area with less movement (consider the Grant brand of gloves). Other brands range in between these two extremes and you can gauge just how much padding you need, and where you want it.

  3. What weight gloves should I get?

    The weight of gloves are measured in ounces. The higher the number the greater the shock absorbency and the heavier the weight. The standard for sparring is 14 - 20 ounces. Go on the heavier side if you want to increase your cardio or have a joint injury. For bag work 12 ounce is standard. For competition 8 or 10 ounce is the standard for pros and 10 or 12 ounce is standard for amateurs.

  5. Boxing Gloves vs. Bag Gloves

    Boxing gloves are designed to use a softer less-dense foam combination, mold or gel that increases shock absorbency for both you and your partner. Bag gloves utilize a dense foam that can withstand the day-in-day-out pounding they will receive in the gym. The closure of boxing gloves protects your partner from abrasions.The closure of bag gloves are easy-on, easy-off. Bag gloves also can contain a grip bar in the palm, which provides you an enhanced (and safer) fist.

  7. Can I hit bags with my boxing gloves?

    You can do bag work with your boxing gloves, but they will break down faster. The foam and outer in boxing gloves are designed to protect your opponent, which is great when sparring but when you use boxing gloves for bag work they will break down faster than comparable bag gloves would.
