Mine are still holding up well. They are pretty well made. But naturally these are not high end gloves, they are just decent for 72 bucks, in my opinion much more decent than 120 new ringside IMF. For 72 I really, really like them. I would not judge Adidas gear from the experience with AIBA. As I said I hate AIBA Adidas gloves, I would never use them for anything but competition. I much more prefer Top Ten or even Everlast AIBA. And honestly I really do not think AIBA gear is relevant here. These rigid cuff gloves are really good gloves, at least for 72. But completely agreed, the old Ringside IMF offer an equal value for 75 (though I still prefer Adidas).
