I purchased a pair of Racer Mickeys in 2016 as a do-all short cuff glove. The original Mickey glove was very protective, almost a short cuff race glove. Think Five SF1 or similar. Superfabric over the sliders, rigid one piece knuckle protection w/ padding, non elastic cuff, stiff TPU on top of hand, thin mesh between fingers but clarino/leather over the ends. Very solid glove. My pair saw 20k miles and probably a dozen "teachable moments" over a couple years of supermoto and minimoto track days.
The redesign is terrible. I gave 3 stars bc Racer USA is high quality and I have no doubt they will last for years and stand up to asphalt. It's just not the same class of glove as the old version. The ceramic superfabric on sliders has been replaced with lookalike plastic, the sliders themselves are softer w/ less padding (unlike the older race style sliders), the cuff has elastic section (I don't like bc easier to come off), the mesh between fingers has been replaced w/ leather/clarino so you cannot spread your fingers and get airflow, the knuckle protection is no longer a rigid one piece design (top of glove is now flexible vs rigid), and the thumb has significantly less protection. Almost everything that I liked about the glove has been changed in it's transformation to a "summer" glove, but it still flows less air that the original.
It will probably be a bomb ass dual sport glove (my future usage, I guess), and remains a high quality option for Sportster/hipster/cool guy market if you're also cross shopping Biltwell or Alpinestars Oscar. It's just not a track capable short cuff glove like it's predecessor.
I regret cutting the tags off, and should have looked at them closer before the first use.
