I have a pair of the Answer Acellerators, in black. They look cool, and they help grip after your hand sweats.

Any leather palmed glove will do you well. For years I bought gloves from a local motocross shop. The gloves are the same and they would have sales. Basically, if you pay much more than 10 bucks for a set of gloves you are doing it for a specific style. Go for the cheap ones on sale - last years model - whatever. They all last the same.

In over a dozen years of wearing gloves to ride, I have seen NO improvement in glove quality really.

I just use Fox Incline gloves. They look good, they don't have any of that pointless rubber crap on them, and they're cheap (about $15 at the shop I get them at). Not that I really use them all that much; they only get use when it's really cold out.

Do not get SHADOW CONSPIRACY gloves. They look nice at first but don't hold up. I ripped half the palm off my left hand glove after a mild fall and I just found a split seam on my right hand glove from doing nothing.

I got the $40 Mechanix gloves from autozone a few years back. They were great when I was working on cars and they are great now.
