Although boxing and Muay Thai gloves are very similar and frequently used interchangeably, there are, in fact, a number of subtle design differences that make the latter style a specialty product generally better suited to Muay Thai fighters. These awesome Muay Thai style sparring/ utility gloves are a top-end product, featuring the highest quality leather construction, an advanced, multi-layer hand-made padding profile, tied thumb, 75mm hook-and-loop wrist strap, moisture-resistant lining, palm roll and palm "clinch" padding.
These are exceptional Muay Thai gloves suitable for seasoned fighters, but, at FITSTORE prices, they are well within reach of beginners as well.
** A note on sizing: There are a number of factors that go into your preferred choice of glove weight, including personal preference, intended use, body weight, and, of course, hand-size (heavier gloves are also larger), so please speak with your coach and/ or conduct your own research as to the most appropriate glove weight for your circumstances. However, in terms of hand-size, please note that these (like many Muay Thai style gloves) are a somewhat snugger fit than many traditional Western-style boxing gloves.
For this reason, most average-sized men (particularly wearing hand-wraps) will find 10oz gloves, and, in most cases, 12oz gloves, quite snug. Average-sized men will generally find 14oz-16oz gloves (18oz for larger men) to be a better fit. Most average-sized women will fit 10oz, 12oz and possibly 14oz gloves. **
We have compiled the following table to help you to select a size that is likely to fit your hand, but please bear in mind that sizing is somewhat flexible (more than one size will likely fit acceptably), gloves will stretch a little to contour to your hand, and that factors other than hand-size should be considered. The author, for example, with a hand-size as measured below of a little over 90mm, prefers a 16oz glove for sparring and 12-14oz for bag work (with wraps in both instances).
App. Hand Width (mm) * Place hand flat with fingers together, and measure width of hand (EXCLUDING thumb) carefully with a tape measure across the knuckles. Select a size below that matches your hand width.
|10oz, should suit hand width of...||75mm-80mm|
|12oz, should suit hand width of...||80mm-85mm|
|14oz, should suit hand width of...||85mm-90mm|
|16oz, should suit hand width of...||90mm-95mm|
|18oz, should suit hand width of...||95mm-100mm|
*All of our sizing guides are provided for your reference only, and based either on manufacturer provided information or on in-house product testing. They do generally work very well, but not for everyone (as sizing online is far from an exact science). To maximise the likelihood of a good fit, please take your time and follow the instructions carefully and measure accurately. Please factor the cost of potential returns (buyer is responsible for all postage charges) into your purchase decision. Our pricing is such, however, that, even in this event, you will, in most cases, still save over retail store pricing.
