Pretty Cuffs

The Zado Wrist Cuffs are decent-quality cuffs that look really nice. They do have some slight flaws which keep them from being the best cuffs out there, but they do come with a connecting chain and are pretty affordable compared to other leather wrist cuffs.

The Zado Wrist Cuffs are red and black restraints sold by EdenFantasys. Made from leather, metal, and suede, these restraints are 14" long and are about two inches in width. Unlike most leather wrist restraints, these cuffs come with a connecting chain that will connect the two cuffs together. Each wrist restraint has a D-ring and fastens with a non-locking buckle.

The Zado Wrist Cuffs come in a pretty cute packaging box. The box itself shows a woman wearing the cuffs, and the box is actually oddly-shaped compared to a regular square box. The cuffs are stuffed inside this box. (Looking at a picture or the video of teh cuffs explains the packaging better than words can). The issue with the packaging is the fact that it has the cuffs crumpled up in an unnatural way. This leads to some "leather memory" that causes the leather cuffs to have some odd curves and shapes in it. You can "retrain" the leather to look cuff-like, but do expect that your cuffs are going to be oddly curved and shaped straight out of the packaging. So while the packaging is pretty, it's not very functional and should have been re-thought by the manufacturers. It's also not suitable for long-term storage of these wrist cuffs. The packaging also comes with a small piece of paper about care for your wrist cuffs.

These red and black bondage cuffs are pretty simply designed. They have the leather on the inside of the cuffs while the red, outer portion is made of suede. These two areas are pretty thick, and they are sewn together. There's a regular buckle that allows you to fasten the cuffs, and there's a D-ring that allows you to use the cuffs as an anchor for bondage points. All of the linking holes are reinforced with metal which keeps the holes from tearing farther. And the connecting chain that these cuffs come with is made from metal and then two single-hook hooks on each end of the chain.

These red bondage cuffs have held up to rough play as well. Even with rough tugging and playing on the D-rings, the cuffs show no signs of falling apart. Some cuffs seem like the rivets might give out or the leather might stretch, but the Zado Wrist Cuffs have held up nicely. I would recommend these wrist restraints for rougher play.

It's nice that the Zado Wrist Cuffs are pretty comfortable, though. The inside of the cuffs is nicely softened, and it feels nice against the skin. Zado did a great job making sure to use softened leather which means that these cuffs don't uncomfortably chaffe against the skin. Even with rough play or sweating, we've had no issue with the cuffs getting annoying against the skin. There are no awkward inner rivets that rub against the skin. So these are definitely a-okay in the comfort area!

The Zado Wrist Cuffs are made a bit stiff as well. This isn't a *huge* deal, but it's important. This means that it's pretty stiff and difficult to put on the cuffs. The leather is a bit stiff, and the fact that the leather was "trained" into the wrong shape does not help in the slightest. This means that putting on these cuffs may be a two-hand job and may actually require some attention to get them on correctly. As time goes by and you use these cuffs more often, the leather will start to soften, and they'll get easier to put on and take off. But you do have to understand that they will be stiff and more difficult to put on when you first get them.

To clean these leather cuffs, the instructions specifically mention to use a scent-free soap for smaller stains or messes. For larger stains, it mentions uses a specific leather cleaner. I always recommend against using any type of dish soaps on leather to avoid accidental harm to the cuffs. It also mentions not to store the cuffs while wet, and it also recommends against storing your new leather cuffs in a plastic bag as it could cause molding. And I definitely recommend storing them fastened and in their fastened circle to help the leather retrain itself to the right shape.
Experience
I like the Zado Wrist Cuffs. They're pretty cute and very comfortable. They seem high-quality and they come with their own connecting chain (which is rare for most wrist cuffs). At the same time, though, the packaging did ruin the natural shape of the cuffs, and it'll take awhile until the cuffs' leather is "retrained" to look like it's supposed to (which is sad). And while it does come with the connecting chain, this connecting chain is pretty intent on getting "stuck" a lot of the time. (This may improve with lots of extra use?) The cuffs themselves are sexy-looking, affordable, and do work just fine for bondage; it's just the small things that could have taken these bondage cuffs from being "good" to "awesome".
