How to Choose the Best Boxing Gloves for Beginners

You've decided to start boxing. You're in the middle of an intense training session, and you notice your hand feeling uncomfortable in the glove.  You feel like your hand is floating inside, and you know it's time to invest in a proper pair of boxing gloves.

Choosing the right boxing gloves isn't just about style, it comes with other benefits such as:

  • Injury prevention: The right gloves provide proper hand and wrist support, reducing the risk of injuries like sprains and fractures.
  • Enhanced performance: Well-fitted gloves improve your grip and punching form, making your training sessions more effective.
  • Comfort and endurance: Quality gloves keep your hands comfortable, allowing you to train longer and harder without discomfort.
  • Confidence: When your hands are well-protected, you can focus on your technique and be confident to take on any challenge while training.
  • Convenience: If you want to be able to do a hybrid boxing workout and lift weights, think of buying a hybrid boxing glove with an open palm. This glove will also allow for you to drink water during your workout without removing your gloves.

Consider the following factors when choosing the best boxing gloves for beginners. 

Size and Weight

How to size up your boxing gloves

Boxing gloves come in different sizes and weights. The glove size is the hand compartment, while the weight is the amount of padding in the glove. 

You choose gloves’ size and weight depending on your weight, hand size, and intended use. Find gloves that fit well and feel comfortable, as you'll be wearing them for extended periods.

The B&B Method’s boxing gloves are designed to provide maximum protection and comfort during training sessions. The padding is thick enough to protect your hands from injury, but not so thick that it hinders your movement.

They are lightweight and easy to wear, making them perfect for beginners who are just starting out.

Our gloves come in varied sizes:

  1. Small for women’s hands
  2. Medium for average-large women’s hands
  3. Large for men’s hands
  4. XL for men’s large hands

Note: The sizes are factored with hand wraps on. Size up by one if you plan on wearing our quick hand wraps under the glove.

Material: Leather

The material of the gloves affects their durability, comfort, and performance. Boxing gloves can be made from a variety of materials such as leather, vinyl, and synthetic leather.

  • Leather: It’s the gold standard for boxing gloves due to its durability and comfort.
  • Vinyl: Vinyl gloves are a more affordable option. However, they tend not to last as long as leather gloves and aren’t as breathable, leading to discomfort during long training sessions.
  • Synthetic Leather (PU): These are more durable and easier to clean than vinyl gloves, but they don’t offer the same level of comfort and breathability as leather gloves.

While vinyl and synthetic leather gloves can be suitable for a moment, boxing gloves made of genuine leather are a more superior choice. 

Leather boxing gloves B&B Method are certain to support you on your boxing journey as they are:

  • Breathable: Leather is a breathable material. This helps keep your hands dry during training.
  • Performance: The quality of leather boxing gloves often translates into better performance in the ring, providing a good balance of protection and power.
  • Cost-effective: They are durable with great performance making them a cost-effective choice in the long run.
  • Durable: Leather is a highly durable material that can withstand the rigors of intense training sessions and lasts for years.
  • Comfortable: Over time, leather gloves conform to the shape of your hand, providing a personalized fit and enhanced comfort.

These are like butter. The more I use them, the better they feel. A great glove for bag work and then right into circuit training!”—B.H. Verified Buyer

Closure System: Velcro

The closure system determines how the gloves fit and how secure they are during training. Here are some types of closure systems to consider.

  • Lace-up: These provide a more customized fit, as they can be adjusted to fit the individual's hand. However, they can be more time-consuming to put on and take off.
  • Velcro: These are the most common type of closure system for boxing gloves and are easy to wear.

Velcro closures are often the best choice for beginners because they are:

  • Easy to use: Can be adjusted quickly and easily, making them suitable for beginners who are still learning to wear their gloves. 
  • Secure fit: This ensures gloves stay in place during training. Perfect for boxers who are new to proper techniques and need extra support.
  • Durable: Can withstand frequent use.

The B&B Method gloves have a double strap velcro closure system making them easy to use, convenient, and offering a secure fit.
