Society Nine™ is the brand for the fight within every woman.
We make the best training gear possible for female fighters everywhere.
We are a sporting goods company entirely focused on quality, innovation and beauty in function. We are a brand for badass women across all high intensity sports, with our main focus being combat sports. Frustrated with the fact that women in combat sports were wearing low quality gloves sized inappropriately and made pink, we developed a boxing glove and MMA glove line exclusively designed to fit women's hands and not compromise on technical performance. We have a patent pending on our MMA glove design. As serious athletes, we deserve better than low quality shrink-it-and-pink-it gear that doesn't fit us.
