These are worth what you are paying and they look good.
These are brand new from Street and Steel and since you will find very few or no other reviews at the moment, I'll go into good detail here. First off I want to address the description written by Street & Steel that I think is a little inaccurate and lacks clarity:

•Aniline finish leather outer (This is not Aniline leather strictly speaking, this is top grain leather with an semi-aniline finish which just means they used natural dies. Top grain leather is not ideal for motorcycle gear as it doesn't stand up to abrasion nearly as well as full grain which is what more expensive gloves are made from, it also does not breathe well but the aniline finish allows some breathability better than most glossy type top grain leathers.)

•Digital print (No idea what this is supposed to mean)

•Reinforced palm (Be aware that this is split grain leather which is the cheapest quality leather and won't do much for protection or wear. This is also what is being used between the fingers. When these gloves wear out, will be this stuff that goes first.

Integrated, injection molded knuckle (Fancy for glued in polyurethane. It will offer some impact resistance, not as good as aluminum but far better than nothing. There are also disks that cover the second bone of the fingers which will give you some more abrasion resistance.)

Elastic stretch panels on fingers (This is funny because they don't use elastic in the fingers, they use something much better, which is flex ribbed leather and 2 leather panels. If they actually used elastic instead these would be worthless)

Pre-curved (Kind of but not really, luckily you don't really need it since the fingers have that handy flex ribbing and 2 piece construction.)

Classic style snap closure (Nope, these don't have a snap closure at all, this is a big oversight. It's just standard velcro. There is a weird extension at the wrist with a snap button that is made for the gloves to snap together. This is awkward and should be removed imo. The wrist is also on the large side.)

Overall these are a pretty good equal to similarly priced and styled Roland Sands or Alpinestars gloves which these are obviously attempting to compete with. The advantages of these gloves over the competition are; armor, more breathable aniline finish and real leather throughout. Roland Sands are missing the armor and Alpinestars use goatskin with fake leather reenforcement which poop. That bing said, I'd gladly pay $20-$30 more for full grain leather. These run small but will stretch out. I am usually an X-large but a large in these which was very snug at first.

These get 3 out of 5 because they aren't anything special but are in no way bad, you absolutely get what you pay for here and they do the job ever so slightly better than the other brands making retro style gloves.

Comfortable mild weather gloves
Got these to wear for when the air is chilly but not cool enough for my insulated gloves. The upper part is pretty thick leather and offers decent wind protection. They knock the chill off on afternoon rides without being bulky and still offer good control feel. I'm very happy with them.

PROS: good fit, Comfortable

BEST USES: Mild weather, Warm weather
