    Bought my MS-600 and CM-15 from Steve. Placed order but he hadn't updated website gloves were out of stock. He emailed me 3 weeks later saying they were back in stock if I still wanted. Confirmed on a Friday, received on Tuesday to UK :cool: FB_IMG_1470255438964.jpg

    i just placed an order with America-Ya on Rakuten.
    winning 16oz
    And rakuten canceled my order.

    I read that global rakuten will be closed starting from June 1st.

    can someone suggest best place to buy winning online?

    Sorry to hear, that's crazy!
    The only places I know of are America Ya & Koubudo on Rakuten, https://www.wjapanboxing.com/ (the official store, which is super expensive), http://www.winning-usa.com/ in the States, and https://www.kozuji.com/gloves.html

    yep, Rakuten doesn't inform me any reason and Steve from America-Ya can't do anything about it.

    i checked those 3, yep wjapanboxing is super expensive.
    and the other 2 don't have the color i want.

    but it's a tough conversation talking to this guy. it's like he doesn't want us to buy his stuffs.
    You have to be super patient.

    finally after waiting so long, he sent me the paypal bill. I just made a payment.
    This is my first pair of winning gloves.
    excited to know how a pair of perfect gloves feel like

    What did you order and did he tell you how long they will be? What country are you in?

    winning 16oz gloves, the one that are in the picture I posted above. He is going to use DHL.
    DHL international express usually takes 4-5 days from US to Indonesia, so from Japan to Indonesia is probably faster.
    I am in indonesia.

    PS: the estimation above is just my guess (except for the DHL , it's written on the invoice). He doesn't say anything about the ETA. You know he doesn't talk much.

    They are really nice looking gloves mate sure you will be really pleased once you have them. How much was the postage if you don’t mind saying?

    The Tokyo area recently eased some of the restrictions due to Covid 19. It still isn't back to normal, but things are slowly returning.
    The retail shops that carry Winning gloves have been open for walk-in retail sales.
    America Ya probably didn't want to deal with shipping during the covid slowdown.

    Winning gloves are too expensive for me actually. But these color scheme encouraged me to buy.
    I never regret it.

    I'm tempted to pull the trigger on a custom color, but I'm trying to resist the urge and not spend that amount of money.

    Where would you buy from? Do the Japanese retailers have custom colours in stock like American ya used to? Any websites?
