Honestly. As i was surfing the net looking for some pair of Bag Gloves i was looking at the gloves made by Grant comparing to those made by FAIRTEX. I really thought they lookd the same. I know, u are telling me there is no way in hell those two can be compared. A pair of mexican gloves are made of goatskin and thai gloves are made of cowhide. But is there really any big difference? Let`s take a closer look. Why does a pair of mexican glove cost almost 70$ more then gloves made in thailand? You`re telling me goatskin is my anwser? i dont think so. Couse if that was the case, then i can either feel or see any differences. Lets compare a pair of mexican gloves versus thai. edit* sorry, pictures no longer hosted* WINDY 18OZ CLETO REYES 16OZ WINDY, PROFILE WINDY, ATTACHED THUMB CLETO REYES, PROFILE CLETO REYES, ATTACHED THUMB WINDY FROM ABOVE CLETO REYES, FROM ABOVE WINDY, WRIST CLETO REYES WRIST WINDY, PALM CLETO REYES, PALM From what i can see, the Reyes gloves has a more sophisticated seams. But i can asure you that the inner material inside the glove is the same. Those windy are bought in Thailand for 25$, they are sold in the US up to 54$. Now the Reyes are sold up to 120$ But im not sure what they cost in Mexico. Thats still 66$ of what DO i GET!? I know that gloves like Reyes and Grant has more kinde of status since they are used in K-1 MAX, Pro Boxing , ect. But then again, Fairtex gloves are used in K-1 USA. (las vegas) I honestly belive, that if a thai glove isent equally as good as a mexican glove, then its near to it. those 66$ isent worth the waste on a pair of mexican gloves. IMHO. :icon_twis Discuss.
