If you want to fight like a pro, you have to train like a pro. Enter the Everlast Pro Style training gloves, which help
you train properly every time you step up to the bag. Made of synthetic leather, the Pro Style gloves are built to
promote proper punching technique, with full padding on the front and back of the wrist that conforms to the natural
shape of your fist. As a result, the gloves not only teach your hands how to punch correctly, but they also prevent
injury. This dense two-layer foam sandwich also protects your wrists, as does the exclusive ThumbLok feature, which
keeps your thumb and fist positioned correctly. Perhaps best of all, the gloves are designed using EverFresh materials.
Available in 12-, 14, and 16-ounce sizes, the gloves offer the choice of a traditional lace-up design or a hook-and-loop
Velcro strap for quick on and off.
Although the name Everlast is synonymous with boxing, the company actually started out as a swimwear manufacturer in
the Bronx in 1910. The son of a tailor and an avid swimmer, 17-year-old Jacob Golomb grew dissatisfied with the flimsy
swimsuits of the time, which barely lasted a season. In response, he began making suits that he guaranteed would last
for a full year. He proudly gave them the name "Everlast," and although the swimsuits did not last throughout history,
the name did. In subsequent years, Golomb transformed his company into a small retail store that carried a full line of
sports equipment. In 1917, a young fighter named Jack Dempsey introduced boxing to Golomb and Everlast. Dempsey asked
Golomb to construct protective headgear that would last more that 15 rounds of intensive boxing training. In 1919,
Dempsey won the world heavyweight championship wearing boxing gloves made for him by Golomb, and shortly afterward,
Everlast became the boxing equipment headquarters throughout the world. Dedicated to leveraging the unique qualities
represented by the Everlast brand--strength, dedication, individuality, and authenticity--the Everlast brand is now
present in more than 101 countries and has 88 licenses worldwide.
