Phenom's Custom Boxing Gear

Phenom Boxing's Custom boxing gear process:

I bought 2 custom punch mitts from Phenom Boxing: the FP-3 Strike back mitts and the FP-205 Speed pads. Overall the experience creating and refining the design from beginning to end was excellent. 

The design process:

I sent Phenom a crude digitally altered photo for the FP-205 mitts and another photo of a vintage rugby shirt for the Fp-3 focus mitts. With a few notes on what I wanted for each mitt Phenom went to work. Custom boxing gear can be stressful because a mockup is not the same as seeing it in real time. When choosing colors, what you imagine in your mind may not always match what you see in reality.

After a few back-and-forth emails refining the design I ultimately settled on a mock-up I was happy with:

The Lead Time:

lead times are different for every brand and can take months, but in the case of Phenom's custom gear the quoted eta was 6 weeks, but I think they made it in 5, which was really fast considering brands like Winning, Fly, and Salvador all have wait times with 6 months being the minimum. 

The Final Product:

The mitts finally Made it! Bubbling with excitement and anticipation like a kid on Christmas I ripped the box open.

I couldn’t help but crack a smile at the beautifully crafted work Phenom did. The mitts were perfect and looked better than I imagined. The only regret was I didn’t order more lmao!

The Fp-205 Mitts were gifted to my friend and owner of non-profit LaBori Boxing. I feel anxious when making customs for my friends/customers because it adds pressure to make something they'll enjoy. For my mitts I really enjoy using them and is my most used mitt in rotation.
