    During winter time, it's common for people (not just girls) to wear gloves.

    What's so funny? :confused:

    i don't see why all of you are saying they are girls gloves because it is absolutely acceptable for boys to wear pink gloves!!! i think that these heat capsule gloves may be for yonex snowboarding

    well do you think its fine for male's to wear pink shirts? if the gloves keep you warmer than normal gloves then surely thats good, i think i might be able to handle wearing them to school

    hehe. No, I don't think it's ok for men to wear pink. But that's just my personal opinion ;); personally I'd never wear pink. I could wear them to a school easily as well, but that wouldn't mean I Want to.

    Like I say, it's just my opinion, if it's bad, then that's just me. :D

    It can?? :eek:, since when? :D hehe. I saw a few kids the other day in their front garden, playing 'outdoor badminton'...hmm, didn't look quite as fun for some reason.

    Imagines: *Me smash-clears an AS-50 upwards* *a powerful gust of wind carries the AS-50 3 houses away*oh well

    But seriously...I doubt Yonex would make the Gloves for outdoor badminton. I find it unlikely that people would therefore then buy yonex's high-end racquets to play with, rather than something heavier/cheaper for outdoor use which isn't so fragile, wouldn't seem to make sense for them. Other than that I think they are pretty useless other than to wear as Normal gloves every day, if you particularly support/like yonex etc.

    i think that they are actually made for snowboarding, as yonex make sowboarding equipment, or walking. (i saw yonex walking boots when i was in Japan)

    i dont think yonex make apparel just for badminton only. They make jogging suit, walking shoes, etc Maybe it can be use in golf and the seller put it in the wrong catergory.

    maybe the seller mostly sells badminton equipment and is known for it, so therefore the gloves would get more attention in the badminton section.

    it doesn't say anywhere that the gloves are for badminton does it?

    hehe - surely they would get less attention from the correct market if you'd put them in the wrong category.

    think about it - if your looking for a pair of pink gloves on ebay you would type in pink gloves

    you would then filter by clothing, shoes and acessories, which would eliminate this set because they're in sports clothes.

    but for argument sake lets' say you want them for an outdoor sport like golf / tennis / cricket.

    you would select sporting goods.

    but yould then select golf or tennis etc.. and once again you would eliminate this pair of gloves..

    neway - enuf.. what started out as me thinkign something was funny has become dull and boring.. kwun might as well close this thread..
