I prefer hook and loop over laces these days. Less hassle. I have a pair of 16oz Reyes training gloves, and a 16oz Title Gel series training gloves set. I prefer the Reyes slightly but they are too expensive to risk having stolen at the gym I sometimes train at. From when I competed in the amateurs I still have the red and blue set of 12 oz Ringside USA Boxing approved competition gloves. I never use these anymore though, they are part of my man cave's wall of pride. Glory days, Al Bundy style.
