Seriously I perswaded a couple of my guy mates who thought the same as u, by getting them to put their hand into mine for a while & they where like wow... I now see why you wear them! Try it if you got a girl friends who have them!
I asked my friend that same question to wich was answerd=because they are expensive and a name brand...oh and they are so comfortable...that was the answer I got. I personally think they are quite hidious
