CUSTOM BOXING GLOVES
With a long history as a combat sport, boxing has now evolved into both a multi-billion dollar industry and a dynamic, challenging workout for beginners and professionals alike. There’s much more to boxing than throwing punches around a ring, too.
Physically, boxing workouts target your back, shoulders, core, and legs through cardio and strength training.
HOW LONG DO BOXING GLOVES LAST?
When you buy a new pair of boxing gloves, you are probably wondering – how long do boxing gloves last? There is not a simple answer to this, as each pair of boxing gloves is different. Some are made for sparring sessions, while some are made for heavy bag training. You need to consider what type of boxing gloves you will use to determine your boxing gloves’ longevity. In this post, we will address just that, to help you out with the decision of buying the most durable boxing gloves at the set moment.
In a hurry? Here is a table that summarizes how long will a specific type of boxing glove last, and what impacts that number.
|Boxing Glove Type
|Sparring Boxing Gloves
|6 months to 1 year
|High-quality leather exterior, weaker padding
|Heavy Bag Boxing Gloves
|2 to 3 years
|Weaker leather exterior, stronger, foam padding
HOW LONG DO SPARRING BOXING GLOVES LAST?
For sparring boxing gloves, leather is an essential aspect. You won’t punch that fast like on heavy bag training, but the sparring gloves will test your technique and precision. A pair of sparring gloves with high-quality leather will have less rough edges, which will significantly help you focus on the training session at hand.
As they have weaker padding than heavy bag boxing gloves, we recommend that you replace sparring boxing gloves every six months. That is if we assume that you use them 2 or 3 times per week.
Some high-quality brands like EVOLUTION PROFESSIONAL EQUIPMENT gloves may last you for a 6 Month. But, if you want to check the lifecycle of your sparring boxing gloves, see if the exterior of the gloves have cracks or are worn down. If they are – it’s time for a replacement!
