Online order collection points:
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
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!
"Keeping Fit Through Sports - and Decathlon!"
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.
Super high quality, nice fit and finish. Better than the entry level Everlast gloves. Not to mention, made in Pakistan

Excellent quality. Affordable price.
Been practicing Muay Thai for almost a month and the gloves are really comfortable - didn't need breaking in. Even my coach recommends these gloves because of the stopper at the wrists!
This gloves may be a little pricey than others BUT satisfaction is super guaranteed. I have been using it almost every other day and the material is so strong and durable.
good boxing gloves for basic/ intermediate user
i like the elastic band that holds then thereto
appear robust - have use about a dozen times and still in one piece
