While you probably shouldn’t play tackle football wearing a leather helmet, most other pieces of vintage sports gear have some practicality for today’s athletes, as well as an undeniably desirable aesthetic. Of course, technology has come a long way since the days of basketballs made from leather panels that were actually stitched together and boxing gloves made from thick cowhide leather, but using age-old materials and manufacturing techniques can also provide a certain level of comfort and quality. Not to mention, there’s something special about equipping yourself with some old-school accouterments, especially when they’re sporting those beautiful dark tan hues of yesteryear.

From golf bags to baseball mitts to medicine balls styled to look like pre-NBA basketballs, Modest Vintage Player (MVP) makes the finest vintage-inspired sports gear on the market. Among its flagship products is its boxing line, which the New Zealand-based company has now made available on Huckberry. The collection includes the Retro Heritage Punching Bag, the Leather Wrecking Ball, Pro Leather Boxing Gloves, Pro Leather Focus Pads, and the Retro Leather Jump Rope — all in dark brown. What’s more, these pieces are all made so you can actually use them to train.

The 5-foot punching bag and spherical wrecking ball, which both come unfilled, each hang from a pro-grade stainless steel chain for your most intense workouts. Coming in two brown colorways, the boxing gloves feature triple-layer foam padding for extra support and double-stitched seams for durability. Meanwhile, the focus pads are the perfect training companion with adjustable straps and the same durability as the gloves. For an alternative form of cardio, you can pick up the leather jump rope, sporting weighted timber handles that feel amazing in your hands and ball bearings inside to help you increase your speed.

Hand-made in small batches, these items are all crafted with authentic cowhide leather that will develop a beautiful patina over time. Explore Modest Vintage Player’s boxing collection now on Huckberry, with prices ranging from $49 to $409.

Purchase: $49+
