I will still use them this season but: I lost a couple of spikes from the back of the glove and removed the other that were left. Sealed the holes with glue with some success.
The gloves are very protective but not as water proof. Not a big problem for me since I rarely ride slush. All in all an OK glove. Not as durable and waterproof as I hoped but very sturdy and protective.
