I am looking for some armored gloves that would look good on a cruiser. What are some that you guys use or recommend?

I like the Alpinestars Hero (http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/1/1/37/10545/ITEM/Alpinestars-Hero-Long-Gloves.aspx) gloves. They come in long or short gauntlet

I have those Alpine Stars. Good in winter. But, I also used to use Road Gear, but no armor.
Now I use BMW gloves, heated grips can be used all winter, but they are not armored. Just a double leather, which is real comfortable.
They all fit different, so shop around at the stores and maybe get more than one pair.
But I think the big thing for cruisers is gauntlets.

I was at the army/navy store and I saw some gloves that had Kevlar material in the knuckles and palm, they key points of impact with going down. Though they weren't leather at all, I was wondering if they would be good enough to use for riding.
They actually look small enough to fit underneath some of the bigger gloves, but that will probably mess with the feel of the handle.

They should like good gloves to me. But I dont' know what they look like. The idea with good gloves is that you need some protection. What kind you get and use is up to you.
Just no bare hands out there.
Everybody has their own different preferred glove.

I use these during the spring and summer... very comfortable, look good, and are armored.
For winter, I use gauntlet gloves, but are not armored - just padded, so I won't even post that here, and I'll be replacing those before next winter.

Fieldsheer Bullet II. I ride a V star, and I love them.
However, try before you buy. Put them on and move your fingers around a LOT in them. Gloves should be snug, but not too snug. One of the guys at the shop probably rode, ask to hold his grip, since that's the feel you'll be experiencing most.
Honestly, gloves get less comfortable over time. The two minutes you think "yeah sure these feel fine" ride in them day in/out for a month and you'll notice little things here and there that get on your nerves. Try on lots of different pairs and lots of different sizes before buying.
