Mike Dunstan: Cool, classy, summer glove
I got these a few days ago and finally had a chance to use them today on my Guzzi California Vintage.
They do look the part. The finish is excellent, this really is a good looking glove. It doesn't really come out in the picture, but the leather on the sides and between the fingers is a dark grey, with a black palm.
Leather is soft and supple, and the perforations give just enough airflow for when the sun is shining, whilst keeping you well protected.
My only gripes are:
1) The inside seams are noticeable, although to be fair it is a thin, summer glove - too much lining and it would be too hot! Still, not enough to be uncomfortable and you forget it once riding :)
2) The wrist closure is velcro. I guess its down to personal taste, but I would have preferred a leather strap with a press stud. Each to his own I guess!
Do take note of the sizing chart. I normally take an XL but had to get a 2XL and they are just right.
Otherwise a fantastic pair of summer gloves - especially at this price. Would buy again.
Harlon Haveland: Fits like a glove
I love these gloves. Smart and stylish with a very comfortable fit. They don't know very hang my fingers like some gloves (my fingers are a Large size) and they breath very well
Peter Gordon: Mr
Very Cool.....look & feel great.
I have ridden in the Shima gloves for 2 weeks and they just keep softening. However you will be happy with protection on knuckles and palms.
short at the wrist and breath well for summer.
2XXL is my size and this was correct.
I get comments when I place gloves any where......... fossil
Wilfried Simoes: Mr

stephen carter: Great value
Absolutely love these gloves. Excellent fit and very comfortable and still feels pretty sturdy. Very stylish looking as well
Richard Russell: Great Summer Gloves
Gloves were a little snug fresh out of the packet but a few weeks later they have become like a second skin. Great looking item, with a bit more protection than the gloves that they replaced but really comfortable. As a style thing I would probably prefer a popper rather than a Velcro strap but that is a personal preference and it does not diminish what is a really great product.
James North: amazing

Paul Hine: Mr

Steve Churchill: Requires time to break in
I have had these gloves for over a year now. I have worn them continuously over that time with the exception of a couple of months over winter. Only in the last couple of months have I stopped noticing discomfort from the thumb seam on my throttle hand. In the first few months the discomfort was quite significant. I stuck with them and they are now very comfortable, light and offer good protection.
