I bought a pair of these gloves from the “Top King” shop outside the Lumpinee stadium in Bangkok. I bought them when I first arrived, which was about 6 months ago and I’ve been using them nearly everyday since.
I’m not a huge fan of Twins gloves and I’ve always preferred Fairtex. I found that Fairtex provided a better fit (especially around the fingers) than the Twins gloves but I found a couple downsides with the Fairtex gloves.
The first is that they’re extremely hard. Now, that’s not a problem if you’re just hitting pads and the heavy bag but when you’re sparring, it’s not appreciated. The second problem with the Fairtex gloves is that they literally fell apart (I was using them during my 2nd trip to Thailand).
Having been using these Top King gloves for the past 6 months, I can tell you that I’m extremely impressed with them. They offer a much better fit than the Twins gloves (a similar fit to the Fairtex) only while the Fairtex gloves are a little too hard and of poor quality (as they fell apart on me), these Top King gloves look almost new – despite half a year of heavy usage.
Up until this point, I can honestly say that these are the best Muay Thai gloves that I have ever used.
