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.

Better than the originals May 6, 2019
Reviewer: Dominic Grilli from Houston, TX United States  
The thumb protection definitely helps, kept my thumb from breaking just the other day too. Still hurt a bit, but would've been worse without

Great Gloves April 23, 2019
Reviewer: Christopher Burke from Erie, PA United States  
Having used several other types of gloves, nothing beats these in terms of protection. Versatile and easy movement.

Only con is a difficulty with ring hilt feders the thumb piece gets stuck occasionally.

The Gold Standard April 12, 2019
Reviewer: Jacob from Tacoma, WA United States  
These gloves have significantly reduced the number of hideous bruises and swollen knuckles that my battered hands have to endure. Now a strike from a steel feder feels like the touch of a hummingbird on a spring day. While I still need to correct my form to keep feders from whacking my hands, these gloves have made that need more technical and less medical. I appreciate that a great deal.
