I had these thin leather gardening style gloves that I used to start learning to slide with. I started to wear through them so I reinforced them with rubber electrical tape. This stuff cones four rolls for $1.49 at Walmart and its not the nice electrical tape that will stretch up to 200% the original size. It's the cheap-ass thick rubber shit that's like strips of plastic almost with adhesive on one side. So I put about 4-5 wraps around key wear areas. I think there are a lot better places to reinforce than where I did, but it was my first time trying it, and I learned how to do it better next time. The tape is easy to replace and cheap. It works pretty well though, I've never worn all the way through the tape before the bottom of a hill or before I got a chance to replace it. And you can put as many wraps as you want to make the gloves as thick as you want in wear zones. Good idea or nah? Anyway it works for me, for now. I think I want leather Blood Orange gloves to replace this shitty system!

If you can keep your fingers from making contact with the ground it'd be better.
