If you searched for Casanova Boxing Gloves, seriously you have my congrats. Because, only a few people, who train boxing, know this brand and even though you can’t find this brand in many countries, finally it came to Amazon. Well better late than never right? Even though I can’t get it for now (right now I live in suburbs of Thailand) when I get the chance, it will be my one of my pairs. Anyway, after I saw it on Amazon, I thought that I should definitely write a thorough review for it. In this writing, I also included my trainer’s experiences with this amazing Mexican pair and sizing information as well.

The padding quality is outstanding. Once you break in the padding, it becomes “softer”. Also, it changes place very quickly. It means that after you punch, it changes location, however, it returns the “zero state” very fast. This quality provides you to have quality sessions and also protects your hands very well. This is actually really important for heavy bag sessions because the padding has the most deformation in this training. When the padding has that quality, it will have way less deformation. With that, according to many reviews and my trainer, you will have awesome sessions with it.
Well, I never have trained with this pair however according to my trainer, it has the best wrist support and that guy probably used more than 10 boxing gloves until these are useless. So his feedback actually meant something to me.
The compartments are a bit detached from each other however these are very well crafted. When you look at the pair, you can even see the details of these compartments.
With that, this model has attached thumb and it has every safety feature for every training type. As you may know that the older Casanova model had detached thumb and it had potential to hurt your sparring partner’s eye. However, Casanova fixed it so Casanova Training Gloves became also suitable for sparring as well. This actually impressed me a lot. Since Casanova is not exactly “a social company” but certainly they listened to the feedback of customers for old model and upgraded it. Considering that many companies are all over the internet but these just don’t listen to any feedback. According to me, this just shows that Casanova cares about products and customers.
Casanova is made of genuine cowhide leather and you can use this pair at least 4 years without any serious defects and according to many reviews, you can trust the durability of padding. It can take a beating for long years. So you can expect the padding to outlast leather.
Comfort: According to my researches, Casanova is way comfortable than many other pairs and the lining is also a bit softer. Keep in mind that other handmade or Mexican style pairs are a bit rough. So I consider this as a minor plus. With that, I did not see many feedbacks about air regulating features but no one complained about it either.
I actually have been waiting for Casanova Training Gloves for over a year. Now I am in Thailand and don’t have good boxing equipment shopping opportunities where I live. But when I will get to the USA, I will definitely try this amazing pair. Seriously I have been waiting for a long time 😉 After I get it you can also find my experiences in this writing.
Note: You can get this pair according to the sizing chart below and if you are over 200 LBS. you should go with 20 oz.
Break in Period: It is only one or two weeks. Considering that many other handmade gloves have 2 months of a break-in period, it is really awesome that you start punching smoothly and get natural striking experience right away.
How is the quality price ratio? As you know you can use this pair for 4+ years and it will give you top notch sessions. So I compare this pair to only the best pairs and I can easily say that the price quality ratio is definitely above average.
Final Notes: I honestly don’t know how many Casanova Boxing gloves are in Amazon’s stock. The pair is simply top notch and it is really hard to find. Also, it is not mass produced for delivering you maximum quality and it has been the same for years. In my opinion, this approach is just amazing for a brand and according to a myriad of people, it is certain that you will have very good sessions with it. If you are interested, then check out the most recent price on Amazon.
This company keeps it old school and does not mass produce. These include other products like boxing headgear which I am extremely satisfied with it. According to my data, the fitting rate of this pair is above %85 and it is very good for a boxing glove. The company listens what customers say and upgrades products accordingly. Also, considering that Casanova does not produce lots of products or does not mass produce, I am sure that many companies, which sell crappy products, make a lot more money than this brand. Seriously considering everything you can just go with any Casanova product. I hope that you enjoyed reading my Casanova Boxing Gloves review and if you have any questions please leave a comment below.
