THE adidas Hybrid 300 gloves are a welcome addition to the sportswear giant’s range of boxing gear. Available in four colours, the gloves have a minimalistic but contemporary design with a glossy finish that marks them out from standard training gloves. Made from genuine cowhide leather, the gloves are also sturdy and cut from a quality material that won’t diminish quickly.
At first, they feel like a tight fit but this is all a part of their design, which is geared toward enhancing performance by providing maximum support. With a little movement and use, the gloves feel much better suited to your hand and there is no hindrance on technique. In fact, their snug fit allows for more effective and crisper punching.
Satin-like lining in the gloves also add to their comfort and with ample ventilation – small holes in the underside of the thumb and fist – extended use is also possible without perspiration affecting the inside.
