SPES Lobster Heavy Gloves Version 1.0 - Pair

The SPES Heavies are designed to protect your hands from injury during training in historical fencing. These gloves provide full coverage for all five fingers in a lobster design.

Thanks to these heavy gloves, training with heavy weapons, feders, and dussacks is much safer.

BEST GLOVES EVER! September 30, 2017
Reviewer: James Carr from Provo, UT United States  
I love these gloves. I started out (like most people) using lacrosse gloves, and I often walked away from sparing with bruised fingers (I even lost a fingernail once). So I got the SPES Heavies. Very first match with them I got smacked square on the knuckles with a steel feder, Hardly felt it at all. They are great for the price and comfortable to boot. The cuff is wide enough to allow for my gambeson with no problems at all.

These gloves are incredible! I watched many reviews on YouTube about them before I made my purchase and I have to say they live up to their rep. Beautiful gloves :)

Heavy Gloves September 14, 2017
Reviewer: Kathryn Bedrosian from Flushing, NY United States  
These gloves are great! They fit well and have good protection. It will take a while to get used to them but they should break in quickly.

Lobster mittens saved my concert piano ambitions August 23, 2017
Reviewer: Gannon Kennedy from Dallas, TX United States  
As a novice, LAX gloves were mildly effective. Now that things are getting faster, my fingers have suffered near breaks a few too many times. If they fit your hands and style, I don't believe there's a better option on the market.
