Kids gloves

Well I've made the plunge, I ordered my son a helmet and a jacket, he can reach the passenger pegs easily and really wants to go for a ride. The problem is I'm having trouble finding a pair of protective kid sized gloves, I can find dozens of kids motorcross gloves but I'd like to find something with a little better protection, anyone have any ideas?

What about some women's gloves that aren't too girly looking.

That would probably work but he must NEVER find out about the origins of said gloves.

Try Veloce. They might have something.

I'll be in the same boat this summer. My 8 yr old wants to ride with me really bad, he has some off-road gear, but no street stuff. I don't recall ever seeing street gloves for kids. I guess off road gloves would be better than nothing.

There used to be a site called cruisinclothes4kids.com, they carried real motorcycle gear for kids imported from England I believe but they've shut down the web store.
Luckily Conor's big for a 7 year old, he wears an adult small helmet and a youth small jacket, over the ankle hiking boots will do untill his feet quit or at least slow their growing.

No, those don't look girlie at all, the boy would probably think those were cool. So there is hope out there I just need to get him to a shop with a large selection and start sticking gloves on him till I fend a pair that fit..

Check out ironpony.com. I was in their showroom a couple days ago, and as usual, they have a wide assortment of discount kids gloves for great prices. Im not sure all of the discount items are listed online, but the staff their has always been very helpful and a phone call or two might get you some really good bargains.
