SPES Lobster Heavy Gloves with exclusive Hard Thumb Upgrade - Pair

More sizes are now available, but these are in high demand, please place your order to get in line.

Based on customer feedback we designed these gloves. They have the lower price of the Lobster gloves, but with the upgraded hard plastic thumb of the Red Lobster Thumbs.

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.

The pockets are separated into a thumb slot, index and middles finger slot, and ring and pinkie fingers slot.

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

See Sizing tab for more information.

  • The outside part of the palm and fingers are protected by the overlapping plastic elements made of polypropylene. Polypropylene has high resistance to cracking, which guarantees a higher durability.
  • The 11cm fabric cuff is reinforced by six plates covered with leather in order to protect the wrist bones.
  • A leather belt with buckle enables manual adjustment of the glove at the wrist for a better fit.
  • The inner part of the gloves is covered with synthetic leather.
  • The quilting on the gloves provides additional amortization against strikes to the hand.

5 of 5 Wow November 18, 2021
Reviewer: Peter from Sylvania, OH  
They fit like a glove (lol) and cinched up to the perfect size. Excellent protection and peace of mind knowing the tip of my thumb isn't going to get smashed into oblivion. Purpleheart was great in getting these out to me.

5 of 5 YES! FINALLY! October 21, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Columbus, OH United States  
This is EXACTLY what I wanted. SPES Heavies are great gloves, but the thumb protection had always been the albatross around their neck (even with Blast Caps) until the new thumb came out with the Red Lobsters. Unfortunately, the over-engineering of the Reds set them back in a number of areas compared to the previous versions. And now we get the best of both worlds. Instant buy.
