Updated: Jun 27, 2023

Want to find the most loved women's boxing gloves of 2021? Whether you're looking for an entry level boxing glove, vegan boxing glove or an elite sparring glove, we present the 5 most loved womens boxing gloves available this year.

Take me straight to the best:

Over the past year there’s been a huge uptake of boxing during lockdown. Many women are incorporating boxing into their daily workouts, burning up calories, toning up their bodies and eliminating those day-to-day stresses in the comfort of your own home. Boxing is great for supporting emotional and physical well-being and as we count down for the gyms and rings to open, we’re looking forward to seeing the Unorthodoxx collection front and centre in women’s boxing kits. Bringing both a sense of power with protection.

For far too long, women’s boxing has been overlooked, especially when it comes to equipment such as hand wraps, boxing gloves, sparring gloves and women’s boxing clothing. But this list promises the start of something new!

If you’re new to the world of women’s boxing, Welcome! It’s great to have you. All women’s gloves are sized by ounces. The weight of the glove represents how much padding it has. There are a selection of different boxing gloves that are suitable for different boxing training. From beginning boxing in training gloves, doing pad work, then increasing to sparring, then amateur, white collar or professional bouts.

Our list indicates what type of training or experience the boxing glove has been designed for. We’ve linked the boxing gloves that help you train and get you to where you want to be. We also know how important values are in and out of the ring, so our list includes both leather and non-leather vegan boxing gloves because what matters to you matters to us!

Women’s Training Boxing Gloves

Our Ice White Vegan Boxing Gloves are perfect for beginners and intermediate boxer training and sparring. They’re also the ideal graduation glove for girls boxing. Training gloves are a great all-round glove that’s multi-use, with the ability to use on pads, bag work and of course, sparring. The 14oz Ice White Vegan Women’s boxing Glove has enough shock absorbency for a sparring session whilst providing maximum protection. Ice white in colour, with a silver strap, the Iced White glove is designed to protect whilst producing an ice-cold punch.

Women’s Vegan Boxing Gloves

The Black Mamba Vegan leather boxing gloves is part of our new vegan range of non-leather gloves. Made with tough-wearing PU and layered foam padding, the Black Mamba glove is water repellent with lining preventing moisture, providing additional comfort alongside a hook and loop closure strap, which is the ultimate convenience when training solo. We recommend these 14oz gloves for training, bag work, pad work or sparring.

Women’s Sparring Boxing Gloves

You might find that your different boxing activities require different gloves, for example, women’s sparring gloves are designed to protect both you and your sparring partner and, most importantly, your hands! Our 16 oz sparring gloves provide the ultimate protection for bag, pad and sparring boxing.

The Blue Fatale Sparring Gloves come in 12oz 14oz and 16oz designed to provide maximum transfer of power and protection. Constructed with layered foam padding and in bright baby blue leather, these leather boxing gloves are the perfect pairing for a new boxer looking to develop their technique and for building endurance and stamina whilst sparring.

Professional & Competition Women’s Boxing Gloves

The Elite Harper is your go-to for fighting boxing gloves Emerald green with black laces, don’t let the cool exterior fool you. These sparring and fight gloves are designed for a slim fit wrist, with layered padding for ultimate protection in the ring. Sized in 12oz,14oz, and 16oz, these leather women’s boxing gloves are unlike any other women’s boxing glove on the market.

In the same vein as the Harper Glove, the Elite Nikita Ice also fits a slim wrist and presents a sleek white leather exterior that’s long-lasting and well-wearing. The lace-up fastenings provide tailored support and fit.

Handy additions

Once you’ve chosen your gloves, don’t forget your boxing wraps. Hand protection is as essential as your pelvic guard or boxing head guard is. Women’s hand wraps are essential for testing out new gloves and under your gloves during fights. Your hand wraps are fundamental to protecting your hands and wrists and removing any moisture from your boxing gloves.

Ultimately, no matter which Unorthodoxx gloves you choose as part of your kit bag, it’s crucial that they fit correctly, with your hands feeling comfortable, not forced into the gloves. A glove too big can cause injury, and a glove too small will distract your concentration level. Boxing for women is just like Cinderella, looking for the perfect fit. But instead of your feet, your focus needs to be on your hands, wrists and fingers.

We’re aiming to be game changers within women’s boxing, so protection and practicality is always paramount for us at Unorthodoxx.
