About Everlast
The name Everlast is synonymous with boxing. Renown internationally as a manufacturer of boxing equipment, Everlast started out as a swimwear manufacturer in 1910. Headquartered in the Bronx, NY, the company was founded by 17-year-old Jacob Golomb. The son of a tailor and an avid swimmer, Jacob Golomb was dissatisfied with the durability of swimsuits because they barely lasted a season, so he began making suits that he guaranteed would last for a full year. He proudly gave them the name, Everlast. Although the swimsuits did not last through the years, the name did.

Over the next years, Golomb expanded his company into a small retail store that carried a full line of sports equipment. In 1917, a young fighter named Jack Dempsey introduced boxing to Golomb and Everlast. Dempsey asked Golomb to construct protective headgear that would last more than 15 rounds of intensive boxing training. Golomb specially designed the training gear for Dempsey. In 1919, Dempsey won the world’s heavyweight championship wearing boxing gloves made for him by Golomb. Everlast became the headquarters for boxing equipment throughout the world. In 1925, Golomb designed elastic-waist trunks to replace the leather-belted trunks then worn by boxers. These trunks, now known as boxer trunks, immediately became famous. Jacob Golomb ran the business until he passed away in the early 1950’s and his son, Dan, took over. In 1958, Ben Nadorf joined Everlast and purchased 50% of the company from the Golomb family. When Dan Golomb passed away in 1995, Nadorf purchased the family’s remaining 50% interest. Nadorf remained the President and Principle Share Holder of Everlast until October 24, 2000.

Everlast men’s and women’s apparel and accessories continue today to be tremendously successful both inside and outside the ring. In addition, Everlast boxing trunks and equipment remain the proud and undefeated champion of the boxing industry for more than 90 years. The history continues, as the name states. Everlast has a traditional past and a knockout future.

"weird gloves" 2009-08-31
By Andy Marlinata (OK, USA)
First of all, I always respect EVERLAST quality. But the idea itself to make a boxing gloves without a loop velcro or lace is just weird, how can it be fit for any buyer which have different shape and size of the wrists? It's just plain weird (I meant to say something worst, but ....mmh..no), make it easier to put in and out? not really since the designer try to "balance" that no velcro or lace idea up by making it very tight to get our hands in and out!! I mean tight, tight!! even without any handwrap, most people will have a hard time putting them on, especially if there's no one around you to help put them on to you. We, as great human being, will some way to put them on anyway, but that's not the point. It's way too much trouble just to put them on just by saving your time not ot place a velcro or tying laces? how about your wrist injury risk? this one'a just palin weird, even from any other gloves maker, the idea itself just plain weird, unfortunately I'm commenting to this one by EVERLAST, actually by any other company, this is just plain weird, make sure get the velcroo oor lace one.

Thanks

"These gloves dont last long" 2009-06-13
By Gerald D. Johnson
I had these gloves for about 2 months. One glove is already ripped open and exposed, so I have to buy another pair. Becareful with these gloves...

"ok but not great" 2009-05-25
By L. Lederer (Danville, CA)
Once you have one hand in the glove it's hard to get the other one on. I didn't realize they didn't have a velco flap to assist with taking them on/off. I would have gotten different gloves. However, if you aren't serious about your sport and just want to have fun every now and then, then, they might be for you. You can't beat the price.

"i love these bloxing gloves" 2009-05-15
By Hutton G. Lewis (Bradenton, FL USA)
these gloves came in perfect condition with nothing for me to complain about they were a tight fit at first but thats a good thing because that lets me know they were new

"Too Tight" 2009-01-06
By Tudko (Montross, Va.)
They're too tight. It's very hard to get them on, and if you wrap your hands, it's impossible. I think it's the elastic around the opening. The gloves themselves are good. They cushion your hands well and are comfortable once you get them on. But you need to be able to do it with your hands wrapped.
