Lee Parks Design DeerTours Gloves are made from Grade-A American deer hide, it’s tougher and more abrasion resistant than cowhide whilst also being thinner – allowing better dexterity.
Each pair of gloves has double-seam stitching and a double-leather palm, they’re fastened with a hook and loop wrist closure – to make sure they won’t come off if you ever find yourself sliding down the asphalt.
