I reviewed these gloves on June 19th, 2011. I still stand by what I wrote, however, these gloves really irritate the skin on the knuckle of my index finger (shooting hand). I have a pretty torquey snap shot, and somehow the snap motion causes a lot of friction in this spot. I suspect this wouldn't be as much of a problem with a casual hockey player, but I've actually torn off skin. My glove was probably just sewn a little too tight in this area, because I haven't heard of anybody else with this problem. Anyway, I've been patient in trying to stretch out the glove's finger (and reluctant to discard new gloves), but the problem hasn't been resolved. So I'll have to call it a loss & buy new gloves. For what it's worth, they've held up very well.
