Flat awkward design, but good color 5/5/2012

I never owned boxing gloves,so I have nothing to compare these to. When I was a child I tried on broken in leather boxing gloves with cotton padding and they fit my hands like a glove. I ordered these gloves as some review advised one size bigger to fit the wraps. I'm glad I did. I'm 5'3" 130 and size 14 feels big enough to fit wraps in. General feel of these gloves is awkward, but then again the price doesn't leave a lot of room for high expectations. I can feel a single flat piece of plasticky foam inside wrapped around my hand and that's basically it. The Velcro ties that flat foam to the wrist on one side and the cover layer of pink rubbery material holds iton the tips of your fingers. There's no wrapped around feeling and it feels like I'm going to work hard to break them in, I don't think that they will wrap around at any point. One big thing for me that is disappointing is that I can't seem to curl my hand without a constant effort to keep my fingers curled. The design of the glove just keeps it flat and doesn't't allow for the curled position of the hand. I don't train now waiting for the bag to arrive, so I'll have to post a follow up review. One thing that I like and the sole reason they are staying is that they are as pink as the picture, and no other brand makes pink gloves that I could find. Two stars for now.
