Schiek weightlifting gloves incorporate our patented "Fins" on the tip of each finger and thumb which makes the gloves easy to remove. These gloves are padded in the palm as well as the thumb with gel which is the best padding for gloves because gel doesn't compress or breakdown like foam. Schiek gloves are made of durable synthetic leather which is washable and non-bleeding so you will love their durability and how easy they are to care for.

Great so far. Took only two workouts to break in, and now they're as flexible as the three-year-old Harbingers they replaced. The fins really are helpful rather than gimmicky. Definitely worth considering if you're in the market for gloves with straps.
I’d give these a 10, but nothing is perfect. I laugh at the poor reviews on these gloves, saying... “they stink after a while, so I need to wash them.” or “ the velcro wears out after a while...” Well why don’t you juste call your mommy and she’ll take care of you. I’m over 50 and been through a **** load of gloves over the yrs. The wristbands are great for my aging bones. The extra palm padding is perfect when you’re pushing heavy on the bench and military press. But for pulling, the thicker palms impedes my grimp. So I practice the indexe/thumb overlap... hey! it contributes toward bigger forearms. Bottom line, glove that shields and protect. If you are more a need to feel type, maybe not for you. IMO the best I’ve used.
Literally the best workout gloves I've ever had. They are quite bulky and the 'easy-off fins' look a bit odd but they are very comfortable and well made. The generous cushioning and grip helps you squeeze out that last couple of reps, especially when doing bench presses or similar exercises when the weight is pushing down on your palms. I've had mine for 18 months now and they are still in excellent condition. IMPORTANT TIP Only wash them occasionally, my first pair faded and deteriorated over many washings. Instead, take them out of your bag as soon as you get back from the gym and hang them up somewhere to air until your next visit. I promise you this works and they will not smell. When you wash them put them in a net laundry bag and on an easy care/light wash, then hang them up to dry naturally.
Within the first month the stitching of the schiek badge on the wrist straps come apart at the ends of the badge, leaving two gaping holes and making the straps extremely long because of this. This happened to both gloves. Never will I be buying schiek stuff again.
Best gloves I've ever purchased! Most gloves barely last me 2 months but I'm coming up on 2 years with these and they are still in great shape. I train hard heavy and dirty and these gloves have keot up with me. I bought a small as recommended by the size chart even though I have a fairly large hand for a woman (ring size 8) and these fit perfectly..
I don't know WHY anyone would rate these less then 10. Unless you bought the wrong size for your hand, these are great!. I'm 6'2, 230 with an XL hand and these are VERY comfortable. OF COURSE they are going to be a little "tight" (if that would be the word) when you first get them, but in USE, they give more grip, adding to your reps and strength. The added on glove wrist strap is great for people who get that "pop" in their upper forearm (closest to wrist) when lifting. Great gloves, HIGHLY recommended and would buy again!
Large fit. Stiff. Returned.
Best pair of gloves purchased so far! Padding is really solid and glove is made of high quality materials gonna last me a while 10x better then any glove you buy at Sports Authority or local sports stores. Very Very Happy! P.S. Its also made in AMERICA!!! Win
I love the feel of these gloves. Much better than the Harbingers I use to use. I would highly recommend these gloves for any serious athlete.
Note: I have these in an XS, a size BB.com doesn't offer (yet). My hands measure 6.5 inches around at the knuckles. I needed a glove that would fit, that offered decent wrist support, and wasn't pink (not sure why all women's clothing has to be pink). These fit the bill perfectly. The synthetic leather padding on the palms doesn't interfere with my grip at all (I've had issues with the palms "bunching" with other gloves), and the wrist wraps are supportive without being too bulky. The fins to pull the gloves off are a nice change to the hooks many gloves have between the fingers (usually, the hooks start to tear at the seams after two weeks or so, which starts to undo the rest of the seaming), and are pretty effective at pulling the glove off. Note that these are 3/4 finger length gloves and not 1/2 length. They will be a little stiff at first, but they will relax a little after some use. Excellent gloves. My gym partner uses them in a medium and used the same pair for a year and a half before having to get rid of them.
Excellent pair of lifting gloves. Love the added wrist support. Just the right amount of padding. Love how easy they are to take off.
I've been using these gloves for over 10 years now. Obviously I've had to get new ones in that time, but they are extremely durable and comfortable. The fins on each finger are genius!!! The fins alone make these gloves superior to any other. These gloves come highly recommended. I will only use these gloves until they are no longer in production.
First tried these gloves when I was deployed and have used these ever since. Love them. Recently lost my pair and just ordered another.
These gloves are wonderful. The fit was excellent and they give great support to my wrists on lifts that had been hurting them. The fins make taking them off a breeze. The only downside I have found is that they don't jive well with pullups if your workout transitions from weights to gymnastic movements. However they aren't really intended for that so not a big knock they just tend to pinch your fingers at the end of the glove on the pullup bar. Overall I am extremely pleased and would highly recommend.
