Hammarhead Industries VMX Gloves

Philadelphia’s Hammarhead Industries has announced a handsome trio of domestic deerskin (Hammarhead’s first collaborative project). Produced in the USA by James Churchill Glove Company, the VMX Glove has a one piece palm and contrasting trim.

Hammarhead founder James Laughead shares, “Mike Churchill of the James Churchill Glove Company and I have been working on the Hammarhead VMX glove project for six months.  Mike has been an outstanding collaborator and extremely patient with me during the process.  Thanks to his insight and support we now have our final product.  Mike’s father turned up the old leather dies that cut these gloves in the 60’s and 70’s.  The leather trim is a nod to the original rolled leather padding that was subsequently replaced with rubber in the 1970’s.  The gloves are really fun to wear and I have claimed the  penultimate prototype as my daily riders (black/natural).”
