The “Hoof” style HEMA glove offers a great balance of protection and mobility. This model combines the strong protection of the original Sparring Gloves with a split finger construction containing two finger pockets for the forefingers. This clever construction allows greater mobility and dexterity for grappling during fencing as well as for adjusting to different grips on your sword.
This model is best suited with cruciform type hilts and other “open hilted” designs such as longsword, arming sword, dussack, and some styles of sabre.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to a number of factors we cannot offer refunds on Sparring Gloves. On a case-by-case basis we can sometimes exchange gloves for the correct size but ONLY if the original pair are in NEW condition and have not been used in any way. This includes “practice” hits and/or spending the afternoon doing solo work in them. We recommend that if you are unsure of your sizing or choice in model that you first try on a pair of a club-mate to better know what will work for you.
