Autodromo Stringback Driving Gloves

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Gear

Our friends at Autodromo have an affinity for all things automotive – and that includes the classic driving glove. As we head full force into the second half of the year, the brand has updated their beloved Stringback gloves.

Sure these things are head turners aesthetically, but they’re just as much function as they are form. Back in the 1950s and 1960s, race car drivers relied on these stringback gloves to not only protect their palms from the wooden steering wheels that were used on cars, but also to keep their hands cool and dry during their countryside stints. Each glove features a 100% cotton crochet back with a short split cuff, making them easy to slip in and out of without those annoying snaps to deal with. The gloves are available in five different color options, and retail for $125 through the brand’s website. [Purchase]
