My husband and I like to try out new things to keep fit. We got the gloves during out 'boxing' and 'kickboxing' phases. Needing some gloves to workout with, our person trainer sold us his pair of gloves.
I like the fact that they are two-toned leather. Black leather on the back of the hands and top of the fist; and leather in a camel colour on the palms. There is a little piece of cloth elastic band that keeps the thumb permanently attached to the index finger side of the glove. The glove has double stitching throughout which makes it durable. It is made in India and is 12 oz. It has a velcro enclosure (with the aries logo on it) that is very easy to adjust and readjust. Inside the gloves are padded and covered with black breathable cotton. This is great because my husband has sweaty palms.
I used these while doing kickboxing workouts and definetly felt the burn and these gloves are heavy to wear for a 45 minute workout. The only thing with these glove that irks me is that there are no cleaning instructions/tag on the inside. I'm not sure how to clean these so I just make sure that a wrap my hands and wrists before putting them on and then use Purel when I'm done. These are great boxing gloves and also give a good support and protection during sparring or workouts.
