Yeah, I bought a pear of these gloves as well and the palm ripped and the fingers started to lose the tips.... I do a ton of wheelies, but still these things shouldn't break that easily :SI have these as well. I wont get them again. The figure grip has come off of them and there is a hole at the tip of my left index finger. They wore out faster than I expected. My Joe Rocket gloves from before were cheaper, same quality and lasted longer. I actually had the Frank Thomas gloves in my hand today and was about to buy but already had a large bill and put them down. I pretty sure I will pick them up. About half the price ($40) and look identical in material and stiching.
