This NORU glove runs a bit snug as compared to other American brands we carry. I’d say this one runs only slightly small, so I’d advise you to choose the size you normally wear in gloves. If you are between sizes, then choose larger. Finger sizing is a bit longer and slimmer than average so those with slender hands will probably like them. Those with shorter/thicker fingers may not.
Hopefully you’ve had some experience with buying gloves and can choose based upon the fit of a previous pair. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Our Two Cents
The NORU Doro glove is a short cuff, all-black leather riding glove. The leather is perforated for comfort in hot weather and knuckle armor is integrated.
The Doro is a more simple style which will appeal to street and cruiser riders. The knuckles are protected with an integrated armor unit which is concealed to keep with the simple look. The armor is shaped well and comfortable. There is a Velcro tab at the wrist to secure the gloves to your hand (a safety feature that is sometimes lacking in less expensive cruiser styles). The back of the hand is lined inside with slick nylon and the palm side is unlined.
The leather used on the entire back of the hand is perforated, so this glove is designed for mild to hot weather comfort (but not cold weather). I don’t think these gloves will take long at all to break in. The price is very reasonable for what I see. :: Paul, 04-05-21
