Founded in 1910 in the Bronx, New York, Everlast is a household name in the world of sports equipment. They’re a company that nearly everyone thinks of when talking about boxing, as they make some of the highest quality boxing gloves available.
Not only that, Everlast has a massive and diverse portfolio of products for fighting sports including protective gear, punching bags, and punch mitts. In the article, we’re going through the 10 Best Everlast Boxing Gloves.
So if you’d like to find out more about what Everlast has to offer in terms of boxing gloves, read on! We’ve also included some things to consider if you are in the market for some new gloves at the end of this article.
OUR TOP PICK
The Everlast Pro Style Training Gloves are a fantastic all-rounder. Made from a synthetic 80% Polyurethane / 20% Polyester leather, these gloves are optimised for heavy bag and mitt work.
They help promote the correct techniques for punching by conforming to the shape of your fist. Everlast Pro Style Training gloves also have a built-in two-layer foam cushioning for incredible shock absorption on the front, back and wrist.
The Pro Style Training Gloves also feature Everlast’s patented EverCool mesh panels and are treated with the EverFresh antimicrobials to prevent bad odor.
- Good quality despite being made from synthetic leather
- Heavy duty and durable
- Might need to be used a few times to soften the fabric for a better fit
A step up from the Everlast Pro Style, the Elite Pro Style Training Gloves are a revolutionary one-piece glove. The one-piece design means that fist placement and the natural range of motion are both optimized.
The patented EverCool mesh woven into the palm of these gloves helps with ventilation and comfort. They also have Closed Cell Foam technology which improves hand protection and a grip cord for enhanced gripping power.
The Elite Pro’s are available in a range of colors and sizes to match most training outfits. Like their predecessors, they’re treated with EverFresh making them odor resistant.

Next on the list is the Everlast Mixed Martial Arts Heavy Bag Gloves. As the name suggests, these gloves are designed and optimized for workouts on heavy bags or focus mitts.
The adjustable Hook & Loop Wrist Strap gives a secure fit feeling to these gloves, and a quick on and off. The open-thumb design on these gloves can be a bit off putting, however, each to their own.
In terms of sizing, the Mixed Martial Arts Heavy Bag Glove comes in S, M, L, and X-L. Much like nearly all of the entries on this list, these MMA Heavy Bag Gloves have EverCool mesh ventilation panels woven into the palm of the glove.

- Open-Thumb design can be an issue for some
- Sizing can be too tight for some

The compact design means that these gloves provide a balance of speed and comfort whilst also delivering a strong punch. The PowerLock Pro’s are ideal for sparring or heavy bag/mitt work.
There’s also a wide variety of colors to choose from with the PowerLock Pro’s, ranging from the classic Black/Gold to a funky Blue/Red. In terms of sizing, the PowerLock Pro’s cover nearly all weight types, from 12oz to 18oz.

Released in November, 2020, the Elite Boxing Glove is designed to fit your hand like a “second skin” and feel like an extension of your hand.
As these gloves are made from genuine leather and a premium blend of multi-layered foam and advanced composite micro-fibre, they are built to last.
We liked the fact that the leather on these gloves is full-grain, which adds to their superior feel when worn. They also feature a one-piece design for optimal comfort. For color and weight there are a few choices with the Elite Laced Leather Gloves.

They’re made with additional padding in the fist and a luxurious cushioned interior. For color options, there’s a choice of four classic designs to choose from.
From the definitive Black with yellow Everlast logo to the authoritative Brown with yellow Everlast Logo. The 1910 Classic Training Gloves may look like the old-school gloves but they have all the features of a modern glove including leather ventilated palms.

Things To Consider
We curated this list as a starting point for those doing a bit of research on the Everlast Brand.
However, if you are in the market for a pair of boxing gloves, either your first pair or replacement, we’ve included important things to consider before making a purchase.
As we’ve mentioned numerous times in the article, each of the gloves on this list (and in general) come in different sizes. To choose the right size you will need to know your height and weight. Even then, sizing is only an estimate.
Anyone up to 5 foot 5 inches and in the 140lb weight bracket should consider the smaller size (12oz). If you're between 5 foot 6 and 5 foot 8 and in the 160lb weight bracket then it’s worth considering a medium sized glove (140z).
However, if you’re on the top end of the middle size range in height and weight, or over 6 feet then it’s worth trying the 16oz gloves. Anyone lucky enough to be over 6 feet tall will most likely need the XL size 18oz gloves.
Intended use of the Gloves
This probably goes without saying. Whilst each of the entries on this list can, arguably, be used for different purposes it’s always important to consider what exercises you’re aiming for.
Everlast has stood the test of time in the boxing world. It could be argued that this is down to a number of factors. Most importantly of these factors is the high build quality of their products.
Even those products on this list made from synthetic leather or composite microfibers hold the Everlast brand and as such are expected to be of a certain quality. Not many sports brands can claim to have such a vivid and longstanding history as a brand like Everlast.
A company doesn’t last for over one hundred years in this hyper competitive market without doing something very much right.
