10 Best Womens Boxing Gloves

There are a number of things to consider when it comes to choosing the perfect pair of boxing gloves. One of those is buying the right type of boxing glove for your hand.

Even though we like to think there are not many differences between men and women, there actually are - one being hand size.

To be able to box efficiently, whether that is in training, the gym or in the ring, you need to wear a glove that fits comfortably. If you do not, you risk straining your wrist and not boxing to the best of your ability. It will likely hold you back from progressing!

When it comes to women’s boxing gloves, they have been created to fit a smaller hand to enable the wearer to box to the best of her ability. It can be difficult to know which one is right, due to the sheer amount of them available to purchase.

Fear not, we have put together the ultimate list for finding the perfect pair of women’s boxing gloves.

OUR TOP PICK

The Ruckus boxing gloves have been specifically designed for the female hand, though as it states, men can wear them too - especially if you have smaller hands.

They recommend choosing women’s gloves due to the different length vs width proportions of the female hand, with these gloves having the perfect ratio for a more comfortable fit.

Even though some may not care about what the gloves look like, for those who are style conscious, these gloves were designed in NYC’s Fashion District to give them that extra edge.

They feature a metallic shimmer and come in three shades of color - pink, gold and blue, but they are all two toned, for example, pink and white.

They are made from vegan leather, with a triple layer dense flypad foam padding for protection and a good hit. The light yet snug padding means you will be able to hit combos faster. 

Pros

  • They look great - a good option if you want something stylish and practical
  • Lightweight padding - that helps you hit combos faster
  • Engineered for women - specially designed to fit the female hand and wrist
  • Vegan - completely vegan friendly with faux leather material

Cons

  • Not for heavy boxing - the padding may be too lightweight, therefore ideal for training and other gloved workouts

EDITORS CHOICE

For those who do not want pink gloves, skip to the next pair, because these are hot pink. Made from 80% polyurethane and 20% polyester, the leather-look gloves are a stylish pair of gloves that are ready to endure a good punch or two.

They include the Everlast Treatment which helps to prevent bad odors, alongside the mesh palm which improves comfort and breathability. 

The curved shape which fits to the hand perfectly has been improved since their last batch of women’s boxing gloves.

The dense two-layer foam has been added to reduce impact to the hands, as well as added padding to the front and back of the wrist to help promote the proper punching technique whether using it during sparring or on a heavy punching bag.

Pros

  • Extra padding - for comfort during heavy punching bag workouts or sparring
  • Improved grip - and a comfortable fit for ease when wearing them during training
  • Everlast Treatment - keeps the gloves fresh throughout each use

Cons

  • Only available in two sizes - 12oz or 14oz, so less variety of sizes

BEST VALUE

If you are looking for gloves that look kinda cute and have extra shock absorption, then these are it. The floral exterior gives the gloves a unique style, but the overall black color does not make it too feminine if that is not what you are after.

However, the pattern has been known to fade, but this will only show people how much you box!

The EVA Lution sheet is combined with a Supremo Shock foam that provides the hand with advanced protection during impact. The DENZO-TRON foam also provides extra impact-resistance, helping to absorb the shock. 

The double stitching prevents the glove from falling apart whilst using it, and the strategically placed perforations means that it can wick all the sweat away whilst keeping your palms ventilated. This should help with odor control too!

Also, the nylon piping that has been placed at the cuff helps to prevent any possible chafing that may occur there, so it will be comfortable to wear for long periods of time.

Pros

  • Extra protection - because of layers of shock absorbent material
  • Stylish - floral pattern for those who like fashion
  • Made for women - fits great on the hand because of its design

Cons

  • Outer pattern has been known to fade - though it just shows how often you use the gloves, which can only be a good thing!
