Dainese Gloves

True to my signature line I don't need another pair of gloves, but.....

I found these and could not resist. It's hard to say if it's the real deal but I am sure hoping it is and I took the gamble.

I love Dainese products and I have Dainese Summer and Winter gloves so I know I am spot in a size Large. My experience is Dainese gloves fit American. Being a Dainese fan I can tell you that none of their gloves are this cheap, unless they have no knuckle protection. I cannot find what model these are. When I get them I will try and remember to update here.

It's a new EBay seller but so far so good with their reviews.

And you are correct, they are horrible fakes.

Not sure what I'm going to do about it yet.

As fake gloves go, the Alpinestar GP pro's are pretty good.

Side by side comparison with the originals, you cant tell.

I thought the same thing, that's why I gambled on them. But the seller hadn't sold many items.

Anyway, they are bad! They look like the were hand sewn and painted by a kid in art class.

I used to have an online shop selling chinese stuff and Ive sold many a pair of these, but, they used to come with the A Star logo on the cuff. I guess Alpinestars got on top of the Chinese selling fake gloves and stopped it somehow. Or, theyve smudged the logo out for the photo...?

Linky - http://www.dhgate.com/wholesale/sear...hSource=search

or search GP Pro glove and youll see lots of options.


These are what I sold (from another forum, I wasnt the seller)

It was a few years ago since Ive sold them and they do look slightly different now...
As with all Chinese stuff, its a bit of a gamble but if they are selling the same gloves as I resold, then they are spot on for the money.

Good luck!

Red and white ones are the fakes and the brown/black are authentic Dainese.
I'm thinking hi res pictures is the best way to show the difference but I'm not gone spend a lot of time trying to resize them etc. Just trust me, they are bad fakes.

I saw on 60 minutes are one of those shows the other day that the Chinese are making "super fakes" that are so close it's hard for anyone to tell the difference. Purses etc.

These gloves are not those.
