    i do. it isn't very warm. i use a thin glove then cover it with the oversized 'nike swoosh' glove. i'll admit that i bought it for its looks, not its function.

    i also will wear a plastic baggie on each hand then wear the 'nike swoosh' glove.

    i think the nike people were thinking breathability and ventilation over warmth on this one.
    I have enough words to get me into trouble, but not enough to get me out of trouble.

    I don't buy Nike under any circumstances. Don't like the company..When, I have bought their running shoes in the past, I thought the construction cheap.
    Don't buy from a company where 1/4 of their budget goes for promotion by using big sports names. I see the swosh, I run the other way. New Balance for me.

    I will not buy Nike Sneakers Ever again, they are cheap crap. I liked the look of the gloves. I prefer Asics sneakers, once you wear them you cant go back to anything else.

    I hear that... their cycling shoes are ok... not as nice as my Sidi's... I too wear mostly new balance... fit me better... I have slightly narrow feet, and even the Nike's are too Narrow for me

    No Nike for me either thanks! I'll keep myself to cycling companies that don't have the wealth of a small country built upon labour exploitation. I'd much rather give my money to a small enthusiastic company that truly care about the sport they manufacture for than to a global multinational who view everything as product.
