Hang'em up!

After a few years of "good and loyal services", my old boxing gloves finally gave up and decided it was time to call it a day. If you look at the picture carefully, you'll see that one of the blue glove has a deflated look - it lost most of its padding through a rip.

I intended to get the same type of gloves as a replacement, but that day the gym had run out, and I had to go for the classic, lace'em up gloves. I must say, I am pretty happy about it. I was worried that putting them on would be a hassle, but it turns out you don't really need to lace them, slipping in is sufficient. On top of that, because there is no velcro, the padding around the wrists is actually much better and offers more protection. And, of course, they have this classic quality and look so much cooler!
Now I have to "break them", because they are still pretty stiff; I started doing just that last Monday, going to the gym for the first time in over 6 weeks - and right now, I don't feel all red, hot and shiny, but rather like my old pair of blue, deflated gloves...
