Greaves were worn as a part of a suit of armor to keep the wearers legs protected; our Renaissance Austere Melee Demi-Greaves offer a simple yet charming design that can be worn on their own or as part of a complete armor. If you are heading into battle, then you can bet that you will want to keep your legs armored. The greaves are coated with rust-free paint from the inside and buckle with adjustable genuine leather straps. During the middle ages men wore this exact type of armor in battle. Mostly in Europe, armor emphasized survivability. Some men even wore steel armor on a daily basis to build up strength and get used to the weight burden. These Renaissance Austere Melee Demi-Greaves are great for historical reenactments, medieval and renaissance festivals or fairs, Live Action Role Play games (LARP), or as parts of a costume!
