Storage Tips
Remember to take your gloves out of your sports bag after every session to help them dry faster; you can also use our glove dryer.


The boxing gloves in the 500 series are made from medium-density moulded foam covered with thick synthetic (PU) fabric. This type of foam provides good cushioning from powerful blows. The thick PU is very durable and will make your gloves last longer. The micro-perforations on the palm of the glove wick away perspiration during training. These gloves are reinforced, specifically designed for kickboxing
- For BEGINNER BOXERS training once or twice per week, choose gloves that wick away perspiration and fit snugly around your wrist. - For INTERMEDIATE BOXERS training two or three times per week at a club or on a punch bag, choose gloves with a thick leather or synthetic leather coating and medium- or high-density foam. - For EXPERT BOXERS training more than four times per week, choose durable gloves with a thick coating made from natural or synthetic leather.
The size of gloves is given in ounces (the measurement used worldwide for boxing gloves). Boxers choose their gloves based on their body weight and the kind of boxing they do: - hitting a punch bag, - sparring. For more information, see our size grid.
For optimal protection of your hands and gloves, be sure to wear: - INNER GLOVES that are easy to put on. They stop your hands rubbing and absorb perspiration to make your gloves last longer. OR - BOXING WRAPS, a basic boxing accessory! They are designed to support your joints (metacarpals and wrists) while absorbing perspiration.
To make your gloves last longer, we recommend drying them after each training session. To do so, get yourself some glove dryers.

    The gloves are a little too stiff, causing quite some discomfort in usage. Otherwise, it’s okay.
    Hope to break it in with a few more uses

    Brand's answer :

    Hello Michelle,

    Thank you for the review about our product: "500 Intermediate Boxing Gloves - Carbon".

    We hope the boxing gloves are doing fine and that they had break comfortably now for you to go through your routines. Some sports items, as in shoes and boxing gloves for instance, at times need some time to break before they become comfortable. We hope you'll give them time and then that they would afterwards do justice to your training routine!

    We hope to see you soon, when our Stores are allowed to be re-opened, hopefully soonest.
    Meantime, stay safe and take care, Michelle.

    Stay healthy, keep fit & stay happy at home, during this circuit-breaker time!

    Glove Design needs to be Improved

    The design of this glove specifically, makes it painful you to throw hooks. The glove makes your fingers to open instead of curling it to a fist.

    Thus, when throwing hooks (Vertical Fist Hooks), you would most likely hit with your fingers instead of your knuckles. Unless of course, if you really tighten your fist (which is not advisable for in Boxing, Fighters need to be loose when punching) or throw a Horizontal Hook Punch instead

    I personally, prefer Vertical Hook Punches so I find myself hitting with my fingers instead of my knuckles so it would be nice if the Glove
    design would make it so that it helps the user curl his/her hand into a fist instead of a half open palm. This is Boxing anyway, we're meant to throw punches not Palm strikes.

    Better than Everlast!

    Super high quality, nice fit and finish. Better than the entry level Everlast gloves. Not to mention, made in Pakistan
