    Hi guys,

    I have recently purchased a pair of 16 oz Cleto Reyes Velcro Training gloves. I know this may sound silly, but I've been living my whole life as an honest dude, and since I really love boxing a lot I figure I gotta do this review to help everyone who is going or interested in investing a pair of high-end boxing gloves.

    Alright. Where should I start. Before purchasing this new pair, I've owned a pair of 14oz Winning Velcro gloves and an 14oz Everlast Isoplate. Yes, I am very grateful and fortunate that I can afford these expensive pair of gloves, and I do really appreciate them!

    Long story short, at first the Cleto Reyes are really freaking hard and stiff. In fact, I've hurt my fingers and thumb quite a bit during my first training with them. Honestly I was quite pissed off. However, please be patient! After doing a few time with the heavy bag, also I did a simple trick on youtube to break in the gloves faster (the link of the video will be at the end), I gotta say the Cleto Reyes do feel freaking awesome in terms of punching feeling. As they say, Cleto Reyes are puncher gloves.

    Again, please be patient! If you want to go for the feelings of punching, go for Cleto Reyes. Winning on the other hand would give a very pleasant comfort and protection to your knuckles. Personally, I think if you can afford the price tag then buy both and use them interchangeably.

    Thank you for your time reading this post. I do really wish you guys can purchase your perfect pair of gloves! Have a good day and do not forget to train hard work hard!

    Cheers!

    Not really a review. You essentially just told us to break our gloves in... which anyone who owns or has owned a pair of gloves knows.

    Yeah, I agree. And who needs another utterly unoriginal discussion of Cleto Reyes anyway?

    Surprised no one has mentioned the cologne. Clearly someone with taste...

    Honestly this would have been cooler if it was a review of the colognes, I only own one bottle and use it maybe twice a year when I go out on a first date with a girl I really want to impress. TS can you recommend the best cologne for pulling girls?

    I'm tempted to insert a well-worn joke from Anchorman, but I will refrain.

    But you should check out Sex Panther.

    Get some custom made Topboxer gloves, They're around 140aud if I recall so like $110usd, just email him and ask him for wrist support and velcro gloves. If you'd rather faster just buy some Fairtex BGV9's for bag and pads or if you strictly want just sparring gloves get fairtex BGV6's.

    can't post a new thread not sure why... guess because im new here. Just purchased some Cleto Reyes 16 oz from ringside.com. Well the left glove fits great, and the right glove well not so great. Where my thumb meets my palm its so tight it almost puts my thumb to sleep, thats only a few minutes, I could just imagine an hour plus in them. Ill probably lose my thumb. I am wondering if it will be fixed with breaking in or is this a defect? I am thinking a defect. Just wondering what other think.

    Thanks.

    Stick socks in it when not in use to stretch it out.

    From an honest guy. You could afford 2 pairs of “unused” gloves but couldn’t catch an authentic bottle of Chanel Bleu or Paco Rabanne 1M <Moves>

    I was trying to hold back but this was more of a flashy Wallet weigh in than anything to do with gloves...

    I’ve got a question for you guys. I always thought Cleto Reyes used goat leather but I recently bought a pair of their hook and look training gloves, and there is a sticker attached to the plastic wrapping that the gloves come in that says “12 oz boxing glove in cow leather”. Did they recently switch to cowhide or something?

    I got some Cleto Reyes gloves recently, bought and sold them on, and they didn't smell anytihng like the old Cleto Reyes gloves I had around 2013ish. The old ones had a really strong unique smell to the leather. I have a Reyes groin guard purchased from around then which also has that smell (not that I go around smelling my groin guard..). But the Reyes gloves I picked up recently still had a leather smell but not nearly as strong as the 2013ish pair. In the label of the newer ones I got, they said it was "made in hide or goat leather" or something like that, can't remember exactly, except I think it mentioned both and not just one or the other.

    Did you smell your groin guard before or after your training session ?
