Customize your gloves

The beauty of having a craftsman create your dream set of boxing gloves in a small workshop in the middle of Turin, is that you can design something amazing. Filippo Di Nardo has previously custom built gloves for amateurs and professional fighters alike with great care and passion. You too can obtain this superior purchasing experience simply by completing a contact form detailing your exact specifications.

Once you have provided your measurements and selected the colors you want for your professional gloves, the request will be reviewed and a mock-up of the design provided for you to view. You can at this stage ask for tweaks to be made and Di Nardo can then work his magic and set about work in producing another work of art.

Metallic leather

The metallized leather undergoes a very special tanning procedure, compared to pastel colors.

The leather is tanned according to the standard processing procedures, after this phase it is sanded, then sprayed with a high-performance crosslinked resin, and finally passing under the rollers, where it is applied over the previously prepared leather, a laminate film, which will give the leather the metallic effect of various colors, such as gold, silver, bronze, etc.

It is good to understand, that this metallic effect being something external to the leather, compared to normal colors, which are completely absorbed by the leather itself. Becoming one thing, has a limited duration, as it tends to wear out over time.

For this reason, Di Nardo suggests using the metallic colors on the back of the glove, as this part is not stressed as much as the front part of the glove is, the impact side.

You may request a certain weight and this can be accommodated but Di Nardo gloves come in one size that will fit all. If placing an order for training gloves, there is a choice of Velcro and lacing closures, but all professional fight gloves are lace closed.
