Steel Greaves

Just as bracers or gauntlets are important for protecting the hands and forearms, greaves are important for protecting the lower leg. And at Medieval Armour, you not only have a selection of functional steel greaves to choose from, but you also have a selection of incredible looking medieval greaves, which come in a wide assortment of different styles. They range from standard steel greaves to blackened steel greaves, to embossed greaves that feature simple design touches across their surface for a bit of minor aesthetic enhancement. They're also offered from a variety of different cultures and eras, ranging from the fantasy era of elven greaves and orcish greaves to the historic era of Spartan greaves and roman greaves. And that's not even counting all the warrior greaves we offer that are fit for virtually any medieval fighter, whether he (or she) be a knight, a soldier, a brigand, an archer, or anything else. Being steel armour, these sets of greaves all make for wonderful SCA greaves, as well as great LARP armour, providing a healthy dose of protection as well as an impressive touch that will make any costume or outfit look authentic and armoured. Are you worried about keeping your legs protected in your next fight? Then take a moment to browse through our steel greaves here at Medieval Armour, and once you find one that suits your need and your personal tastes, pick them up and put them on...and you'll no longer have to worry about a blade cutting your legs right out from under you.
