SPES Lobster Heavy Gloves with Updated Thumb - Pair

Please allow long delivery time - SPES is a bit behind on these and we do not have availability of these at all times.


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.

5 of 5 Fits as expected, construction quality is good April 2, 2020
Reviewer: Jason  
Have not broken in this pair yet due to Covid, but experience with these as club loaners has always been positive. The upgraded thumb area seems to have a good deal more protection than the older model without impacting mobility too much, which is nice to have.

5 of 5 SPES Heavy Gloves (updated thumb) March 19, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from RI United States  
These gloves are great! The small size is a perfect fit. They are quite stiff, but I suspect that will work out with use. I have much more mobility and dexterity in the fingers and thumb than I thought a "lobster" glove would provide. Unfortunately, because of everything being shut down due to the COVID-19 outbreak I haven't been able to fence with them yet, only to do drills on my own. I can't wait to test them out in partner practice.
