Winning Boxing Gloves is used by many pros and it is regarded as the most quality pair on the market.
There are actually a lot of reasons why this pair has such a good reputation…
The reviewed gloves below are the most popular training gloves (MS series, MS600, MS500, MS200) of the company and I will also talk about the other models to cover everything about the subject.

Well, you might think that these ratings are high and I was being generous…
Padding and Protection
Let’s start with one of the best qualities of this glove which is padding. The padding is the main reason why this glove is used for heavy punching and sparring. Thanks to the shock distribution of it, the glove provides superior protection for your hand and your wrist.
The used material is foam and it has serious quality. In addition to that, it is quite dense and it quickly absorbs the shock, distributes throughout the glove and dense foam improves this furthermore.
This does not only provide protection for you but this will also improve the protection for your sparring partner.
Is not this nice?
This is actually the reason why many popular boxing gyms around the world suggest Winning for sparring as they try to minimize the likelihood of injuries.
The durability also benefits from padding. High dense foam decreases the impact of shocks thus it improves durability. By the way, considering my experiences, this is the factor which you really pay attention to. Because this has a positive or negative impact on everything depending on the quality.
So the glove is a bit heavier than usual but it is only a little bit of difference and it compensates this disadvantage with design and actually has similar weight with the most boxing gloves.
Many of my commentators also mentioned that after a boxing workout with Winning, ache and knuckle pain was significantly lower than usual. And this is quite normal because the padding is soft and distributes shock really fast so they experience less pain than usual which many boxers greatly appreciate.
Quick Update: I did not know about the impact absorber however after one of my commentators had mentioned it, I needed to research it. It turns out that the glove’s wrist compartment has an impact absorber which is “L” shaped thin padding. It is just a thin layer of extra padding at the wrist compartment and it just does what the name suggests
Padding is the first area that faces the impact however the wrist support needs to be solid to reduce the shock more. It wraps your wrist well and wrist support’s shape changes according to your punching style. So your punching style, angle do not matter and this is really amazing but unfortunately, there are not many gloves which have this quality. So Winning seems like the only option when it comes to protection.
Basically, there is no surprise that this glove is the best and the protection is arguably why this glove is preferred by so many boxers.
Leather is made of premium material and it incredibly soft. So it will be easy on bag, pads and if you choose to spar your opponents will also appreciate it as they are less likely to get cuts from it.
Alright, now you learned all about the padding and leather. Even though I talked briefly about the durability I have not made a comparison with other boxing gloves. The high-density padding and leather can withstand constant abuse for years. The average durability of this glove is about three years which is quite long considering most synthetic leather gloves start tearing apart after six months.
However, if you take care of these gloves, this period can be longer. But if you are hitting the bag from various angles every day then it will be shorter.
As I mentioned above this glove has perfect design and it helps with breathability. The air channels are strategically placed and these provide air circulation all the time. The lining is soft and does not irritate your hand so your knuckles will not have rashes much while punching the bag hard. Though you can always improve it by using longer or thicker hand wraps.
Sweat also escapes at a good rate which does not bother your wrists and you probably don’t even realize this happening as well and won’t bother you.
Winning gets A+ for comfort.
Also, there is not any break-in period for Winning and as soon as you get your gloves you can start pounding the pads and feel natural with it. The comfort of this pair literally can’t be any better and no, I am not exaggerating as I have trained with twelve gloves so far.
Winning Lace-up or Velcro?
Winning has lace-up and Velcro models. You may have seen various models which are called MS-400, MS-300… and these are basically the same glove’s lace-up and Velcro models.
So what is the difference?
Well, the difference is the lace-up model is harder to put on and you will need help from someone else. If you train somewhat regularly and are not a professional or don’t compete at all, I don’t recommend lace-up. You can get Velcro and wear the glove in seconds… It is the same glove. The only difference is that there is a bit more extra cushion at the wrist part.
The only advantage of lace-up is that the lace-up model mimics the real environment better. If you plan on competing this can be a better choice for sparring. Also, your hands will be used to this type of glove.
Is It Really Worth the Money?
Well, I know that you always have heard good excellent things about this pair. And yeah, it is really an excellent pair and we are lucky to train, spar and compete with it. However, you might need to break the bank to buy this pair and keep in mind that the quality is unmatched. Winning Training Gloves’ protection, leather quality and padding materials are the biggest factors for the high cost.
Most of the other boxing gloves do not even have one of the qualities above and have the price tag which is half of Winning. So these are the ones which are not worth the money and I truly believe that Winning is worth every penny you spend on it.
Obviously, if the price was lower, it would be better but it is what it is. We need to pay for the quality. You can click here to check out the most recent price.
Other Winning Gloves
Normally, I don’t write about the brand’s other models in a specific review, however, you need to know about this.
You may have seen other Winning Glove Models like pad gloves. Well, I honestly don’t doubt the padding, leather, durability of these… After all, it is Winning, right? However, I have not bought them and even don’t recall seeing any boxing enthusiast who uses them. I also have not seen a single review which people actually use it… This tells me one thing. If you are buying boxing gloves from Winning, you should consider only Winning Training Gloves, period.
About Winning (Company, My Research)
Anyway, even though Winning “upgrades” the gears from time to time this is an old school company. As you read above you can clearly see that they use materials which were used ages ago however it also uses “new materials”.
With that being said, have you seen this company’s website? Well, if you have checked it out you may ask yourself “The gloves cost a small fortune and how can the website looks like this?” Honestly, I could not believe at first too as the website was made with really old plugins (programs), etc.
Also, if you don’t only train and you actually watch boxing you can see that a lot of boxers actually spar and train with Winning Boxing Gloves. Floyd Mayweather has a collection of Winning Series. I even saw him training with the older Winning models which should not come as a surprise as Winning has been the number one boxing company for a really long time and Floyd Mayweather obviously always trained so hard and Winning was his choice back then as well.
My Take on Winning Boxing Gloves
As you can guess, Winning made the top of my recommended boxing gloves and I have a martial arts site for a really long time, have countless gear review articles and if I can only recommend only one boxing gear that would be Winning Boxing Gloves. Seriously when you consider the leather quality, training performance, padding durability and amazing protection there is no glove that can rival that. Yeah, it is pricey but it is worth the money.
If you started interested in boxing or a more advanced boxer, this glove will be perfect for you.
