Gloves at the games?

Saw a bunch of folks wearing gloves (smart for a three day weekend of high intensity WODs IMO)...

Anyone know what they are or where to get them?

Thanks!!

Karin

Don't be ridiculous.

They're $200 PER HAND. And an extra $50 if you want them to add the new Reebok Crossfit Delta Velcro Closure System...

I actually think these gloves are the Reebok VR6000 Premier III Batting gloves...

finally, a helpful post (don't get me wrong... cute bulldog, but has notta to do with my post).

I was wondering if they were batting gloves. I was thinking that some of the roping gloves I have seen would be useful in the case of a need to really protect your hands.

Thanks!!

Re: Gloves at the games?

Its bizarre because I swear I heard something that said that athletes were only allowed to wear tape on their hands, no gloves. But assuming Reebok gave the athletes the gloves, I guess everything changed...

Re: Gloves at the games?

Guys used gloves at the games last year as well.

I specifically remember Khalipa wearing them on the last event last year.
