Top King 12oz 3 Tone "Professional" Boxing Gloves RRP £55
These gloves are big, whether you see this as a positive or negative is down to personal choice but they are a large size glove with long wrist cuffs and a flattish mold. The leather is 100% cowhide and of the type of good quality you would expect from a Thai made glove. The picture above is the actual pair we were sent before we started smashing it up. (I'll post some of the later photos 6 months on shortly!) First impressions of putting this glove on is that it is a nice fit and some attention has been made to a comfortable and well finished hand compartment, the leather strap is finished well and covers the velcro perfectly which is often a problem with cheaper boxing gloves.
The main feel of them once on is how light they appear to be and in use feel almost like they aren't on which I can only say is great unlike say a pair of Twins specials I have where you definately know you are wearing them. After 6 months of constant use these gloves don't show any signs of aging and its hard to find a real downside of them.
