Vegan lifting gloves?

#1 Postby kckas » Wed Jul 11, 2012 5:08 pm

The only brand I can find are Newgrip but it's not what I'm looking for. I just want a glove that's cruelty free, are there any other options? I'd love it if there was a women's version.

I've started Crossfit and I can't wear gloves then so my hands are ripped up right now. I know eventually they will callus. I could wear tape every time I lift but it seems a bit much.

TIA!

You could also try cycling gloves. It's fairly easy to find them with some leather-alternative, including women's.

I know you said you're not looking for New Grips, but I have them and I really like them.

It looks like Valeo discontinued their non-leather gloves. I'll look into cycling gloves. Is there any other options?

Thanks!

I dont honestly know if they are vegan or not but what about checking gripad.com.
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

I don't make excuses... I make results

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you

There are loads! They have some a target, however I recently picked up some Nike lifting gloves from Modell's (here in Philly- not sure if they have those where you are.) I wear xsmall women's, but they had up to large man sizes.
