I know this is an old thread, but I think the questions is timeless. Earlier this year I decided to buy myself a new pair of boxing gloves. I mostly do use them for heavy bag workouts. I was willing to spend up to 100 bucks and wanted to get 16 Oz gloves in order to get good protection for my hands and a better result for upper body strength and conditioning.
After trying a lot of different gloves in the martial arts stores in South Florida, I opted for Top Ten 16 Oz sparring gloves, Superfight 3000. They are easy to recognise with their double velcro straps. I am very happy with my decision and I think they are the best boxing gloves I ever had. So far I had Reyes, Everlast, Greenhill, Kwon, LasDos, Adidas and Berg.

The padding is the best thing about the product. It always stays in the same shape and position. After 6 month of almost daily use the gloves still look like new. Just the area in front of the knuckles is a bit rougher. I haven't used any care products, so I guess the leather doesn't need too much care either way. The double velcro needs to get used to, but I learned to like it because it is easier to fine-tune wrist support with 2 straps compared to just one. Wrist support is good with this glove.
When I visited the Fighters shop where I bought them they recommended this glove over others. When I compared them to Twins, King and Yokkao I knew they were much better. Actually, I love using 16 Oz gloves a lot now. I even put them on for shadow boxing. The positive effect on strength in my arms, neck and shoulders is astonishing.
