Is there a way to "shrink" leather gloves?

My favorite set of gloves went "bye byes" this morning...I left them sitting on the bumper of my wifes car last night and when she left this morning the gloves went for a ride...I'm sure they fell off in a very short distance and someone has a nice set of gloves now My fault for being a dumb ass

Anyways they were Icon Merc shorty gloves left over from my F4i sport bike days...absolutely the best gloves I have ever had

I have another pair in the same size...but with Icon's weird process these ones are a bit longer in the fingers even with base of my fingers all the way in...so...is there a way to shrink gloves so that they will fit better??


I know weird question but thought I'd give it a shot

Water will do but as soon as they are dry use quality leather conditioner or they will look crappy soon

shrinking leather gloves

Wet em, let em dry then use leather conditioner on them. I got mine wet while riding and it took about three or four days to get the black off my hands.
