SPES Lobster Heavy Gloves with Updated Thumb - 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.

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.

4 of 5 4.5 stars January 17, 2020
Reviewer: Fuzzy from Missoula, MT United States  
Great gloves. Dexterity isn't as big of an issue as I wouldv'e expected, hardly one at all. Just wearing them for warm ups/practice, broke them in in no time.

Surprised to find a good whack to the hands can still hurt a bit (I'm new...). Thumb protection leaves a little to be desired.

5 of 5 Best hoof-style glove I've seen so far January 14, 2020
Reviewer: Scott Wright from Grant, MI United States  
Awesome product!  I opted for a very snug fit - there's no room for a pair of leather gloves under these, and my fingers literally come right to the hoof-tips.  So far they are excellent.  I've seen some older versions of these gloves where the user's fingers have worn holes through the leather liner material, but these new ones seem like thicker and more resilient leather, so we'll see how they perform over time.  :)

5 of 5 I have small hands glad this comes in XS December 17, 2019
Reviewer: Woods from New Freedom, PA United States  
I was worried about my small hands but these fit almost perfect! (thumb could be a little shorter) These are really tough gloves! they do make it harder to do some moves but man I don't feel a thing when hit!
