Driving gloves were originally worn to keep the hands clean while driving a racecar. They feature open knuckles for maximum flexibility and ventilation to reduce stress on the thin leather. They also typically have short cuffs so they don’t restrict movement. Because leather shrinks considerably when exposed to warmth, driving gloves are usually limited only to the tactile areas of the hand. Your life choices create your lifestyle.
