Boxing gloves are one of the most important tools for boxers, if not THE most importantpiece of boxing equipment. With the right pair of gloves you can improve your skills and increase your fitness, stamina and chances of winning in competitions.
Before you buy your gloves, think about what you will use them for and your specific goals with a new pair. All gloves look great, so focus on materials, padding, weight and factors than will ultimately make you a better fighter.
You can look to:
For more information, take a look at our boxing glove guide for women, which has a lot of information on weights and materials, as well as our sizing guide for the perfect fit.
Our range includes leather, vinyl, PU, hook & loop and laces. Here’s what you need to know:

Boxing gloves can be separated via two primary variables: density or hardness and weight. Different types of gloves have very distinctive uses. Higher density gloves are suitable for bag and pad work, whereas less dense ones are mainly used for sparring. Most pro or semi-pro boxers will have at least two pairs of gloves because different gloves suit different aspects of training.
As mentioned above, denser gloves are designed for bag work and not suitable against a fellow opponent. As bag gloves can be extremely solid, taking a full-throttle punch in training could easily harm someone or knock them out, particularly with heavier weighted gloves.
These gloves are nearly always the most durable style owing to the thicker foam, which means they can withstand punishing training regimes involving solid bags.
Softer gloves are designed more for sparring, so they might be referred to simply as ‘sparring gloves’. These gloves contain more soft foams that make them less impactful during sparring. As sparring shouldn’t be about power, as it’s more about accuracy and other techniques, there’s really no need to use denser gloves. Softer gloves will lose their protection and shape over time, particularly if you use them for bag work.
Adult boxing gloves range from 10 ozs to 20 ozs. The differences in weight may seem minimal at first, but a jump of 8 ozs is an extra quarter of a kilogram, that’s a large amount of excess weight to carry at the end of your arm. The weight of a glove affects who can use it and what they can use it for.
In professional bouts, 10 ozs is often a standard glove weight. Training with gloves close to this gives you a sense of the ‘real thing’, but lighter gloves have less padding and also, training with heavier gloves is better for strength conditioning and increased hand speed. This is why heavier gloves are usually worn during sparring and training.
10 oz gloves will suit younger boxers or female boxers for general use. Many boxers turn to lighter gloves when they’re working on fast bag combinations or other speed and agility drills. It also means you can train harder for longer compared to when you’re using heavier gloves.
A small notch up is 12-14 oz gloves. These are probably considered the preferred weight for women boxers and they provide a good trade-off between a glove that offers extra speed and stamina and a glove with considerable weight. 14 oz gloves for example are a great starting point for both adult men and women.
When someone who hasn’t boxed tries to punch a bag with 16 oz gloves, they quickly realise the upper body stamina you need for boxing. Starting with 16 oz gloves can be strenuous but rewarding as they will make you work harder. 16 oz gloves are the preferred sparring weight for adult men.
Gloves at this weight are extremely heavy to most builds. In terms of strength and stamina, there are very few who can go hell-for-leather with gloves this heavy. In training, if you can complete a short session with 20 oz or even 22 oz gloves then you’ll be training hard and pushing your physical fitness to the next level.
While you’re ordering make sure to pick up some hand wraps or hook and jab pads for high hand protection. As you know, to compete in the UK you must use hand wraps as health and safety is a key component of the sport.
Equally, as you train, you need to protect yourself with the right training gear to avoid injuries that will prevent you from meeting your fitness and training goals, or even pulling out of bouts.
We exclusively offer adidas MyGloves boxing equipment in the UK! Design your own custom gloves with your favourite colours, add unique text like your name or slogan, and they will be handcrafted for you to the highest quality and shipped directly from the US.
Boxing gloves are durable by design and if you take care of them, they can last a long time and become even better value for money. Firstly, ensure you are using the right glove for the task at hand and keep clean with either spray-on deodorisers or glove insert deodorisers, especially when they have become sweaty on the inside. If you choose leather gloves, it is advisable to use leather specific cleaning products.
For storage, keep them safe in your gym bag or store them in a dry place away from moisture, preferably in their own glove storage bag, allowing ventilation by opening up their fastenings.
