    Yeah, I ordered them May 29th, and they only arrived yesterday but what can you expect for $11 including shipping? Seem to be made well, worked great this morning: Nice and airy, love the pad on the palm, in the past that part of my hand would start to ache towards the end of my rides.
    I may order a few more pairs, just to have when theses are worn thru.

    Interesting website. They sell all kinds of major brands dirt cheap but don't ever mention actual brand names in their ads. Did you actually get specialized gloves?

    I really have no idea! All I know is the website is direct from the wholesaler. The hangtag they were attached to looks pretty legit, and the English wasn't Engrish if you know what I mean.
    I didn't buy them for the Specialized brand, just that they were cheap, terrycloth thumb, padded on the palm, and the cuff doesn't come high up the wrist.
    Some of the other gloves on the site have knock off 'Fox' logos IIRC.
    Maybe the seller is shopping them to Specialized, or they are a Euro glove or an old model who knows....

    Update on the $11 gloves:
    After a dozen or so rides they are holding up great. No seams popping or such. I think I'm going to buy a few more pairs for when they do wear down so I don't have to hunt for a new glove.
