A seasoned boxer needs different things from a glove than a beginner, and that things this Cleto Reyes Extra Padding Gloves can provide! Their design is as great as their craftsmanship, and their sturdiness and build makes them great for people that aren’t afraid to invest in some good quality gloves that will last them for a while.
QUALITY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP/ DURABILITY AND LONG-LASTING
The quality and craftmanship of Cleto Reyes Extra Padding Gloves are absolutely excellent: they are made out of goatskin leather and latex foam padding making them resistant and sturdy but also comfortable. The classic-looking boxing gloves have an extremely strong leather construction reinforced with double stitching. This means long years of usage with proper maintenance.
PROTECTION AND PADDING
Their padding is very good as well and it ensures you won’t get hurt when you box: the extra thick foam makes sure of that. They are suitable for training but also for heavy bag training thanks to the foam which absorbs impacts very well. Their sturdiness and extra thick padding, however, makes them a little bit difficult to break in so be aware they might be a little uncomfortable at first.
LINING AND STITCHING
Cleto Reyes Extra Padding Gloves features water-repellent lining with perfect quality. Not a single stitch out of the double stitching is out of place, ensuring they will embrace your hand properly and they come with an attached thumb for an extra of mobility.
CLOSURE SYSTEM AND WRIST SUPPORT
They come with a reinforced velcro hook and loop closure system that closes tightly around your wrist. While they provide good wrist support, they might feel a bit tight and uncomfortable at first, and they might feel a bit heavy.
While Cleto Reyes Extra Padding Gloves are rather comfortable when broken in and already used, when they are brand new they can feel rather rigid, uncomfortable, and tight. Breaking them in doesn’t take a lot of time, however, so it is not a big issue. The palm area is a little small so it might not be the best for those with big hands, and there is a little bit of wiggle room in the thumb area.
All in all, Cleto Reyes Extra Padding Gloves are with excellent quality and some of the best Cleto Reyes has to offer. If you value great craftsmanship and high quality, these are the perfect gloves for you!
