I've been using Fox gloves for 7-8 years now. They last a long time (I was them after every ride), look good....'nuff said. I usually get the Sidewinders but these Attack gloves were dirt cheap (I refuse to pay more than $20 for gloves). These don't have the same level of padding as the Sidewinders but other than that they work great. To clarify, the Sidewinders don't have padding either....but it does have reinforcement in more sensitive areas of the palm. For the price, you can't complain.
