The Drako Youth Leather Boxing Gloves were designed for children roughly between the ages of 5 and 9 years old, and are a step up from their similarly designed relative, the Youth PU Boxing Glove. The smaller hand compartments and cuffs ensure that these gloves will stay securely on the hands of the average child. These leather boxing gloves are the perfect option for children and youth who are keen boxers or kickboxers because the leather used is more durable and longer lasting than vinyl options.
Youth and kids boxing gloves are often inferior in quality to adult gloves, but Drako uses the same materials and manufacturing processes in their youth boxing gloves as they do in equivalent adult lines.
Genuine leather is the material of choice for intermediate and high end Drako boxing gloves because leather is more durable than vinyl. This is due to its natural ability to stretch and morph under pressure.
The Velcro closure straps on these beginners boxing gloves are ideal for children because they are easy to put on and take off. The straps are also very easily adjustable to any wrist size which makes them perfect for growing children.
Young athletes deserve access to high quality training gear that is both comfortable and durable. The Drako Youth Leather Boxing Gloves fill this need and are perfect for any youth who take their martial arts seriously.
Note: the ounces measurement refers to the weight of the padding the glove has; therefore, the higher the weight, the higher the protection. The hand compartments are one-size-fits-all, and the Velcro straps are adjustable so that they can fit any wrist.
6oz boxing gloves: these youth boxing gloves are best suited for younger children as they are light and will help them to keep their hands balanced.
8oz boxing gloves: these amateur boxing gloves provide an excellent balance between lightness and protection.
10oz boxing gloves: we suggest this size for older children because they offer the most protection. Older children are usually stronger and hit harder, making extra protection desirable.
