New Balance V3 MLB All-Black Low-Cut Umpire Plate Shoes
Official 2-Minute Review: New Balance MLB V3 Umpire Plate Shoes
Very comfortable umpire plate shoes. The shoe is about a half size larger than expected but was able to thread the laces through the additional set of eyelets which keeps my foot in tight enough without having to go to insoles.

Absolutely love these umpire plate shoes. I personally do not care for high tops. Happy to see them offer the lower cut.

This model 2E is not as wide as the 2015 2E model.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Loosing a toenail on left foot - Little League game, took a direct hit to big toe, just wearing a my regular New Balance cleats. Will these "plate shoes" provide any extra protection to toes?
– Doug Murray
Ouch! It is always risky getting behind the plate without proper protection. These New Balance Umpire Plate Shoes will absolutely provide more protection than a regular shoe or cleat. They feature a toe box designed with the highest grade Thermal Polyurethane (technical term for extremely hard plastic) possible to protect your toes. The metatarsal plate protecting the top and sides of your feet is also manufactured from Thermal Polyurethane making this one of the most protective plate shoes on the market today.– Josh Mann
