g-lovesG-loves. No, that is not a typo. It is the name of my new favorite accessory. G-loves. They’re stylized gloves on crack. Technically for weight lifters, they’re designed with padding on the palms to keep women from getting calluses on their hands when lifting weights, which means they work great for wheelchair pushing.

One of the terrible side-effects of wheeling around is that my hands take quite a beating. My palms get rough and dry. The side of my thumbs have permanent marks from where the tire rubs when wheeling. I could save my thumbs by having my handrims farther out, but then my wheelchair would be wider and I’d have a more difficult time getting through doorways. In this business, you have give and take. Roughed up hands versus getting through doorways. Pick or choose.
