3N2 Reaction Pro Low Umpire Plate Shoes
Official Review: 3n2 Reaction Umpire Plate Shoes
Ty takes you behind the plate and shows off 3n2's entry-level umpire plate shoes for baseball and softball umpires.
These run about a 1/2 size small. I ordered 10 1/2 (my size in my other base and plate shoes) and my toes were jammed into the end. I returned for 11 and they fit perfectly.
Comfortable, lightweight shoe. One of the very few options for women to wear when they are about a women's size 7.5-8. The only downside with a new pair of shoes is they are stiff and somewhat difficult to tie when you first get them. Would definitely recommend and buy these again.
Very light and comfortable shoes.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Do mid-cut umpire shoes offer better protection than low-cut models? Are low-cut models less safe? |
– Michael Labarbera
This is a great question! Most umpires feel the mid-cut, not unlike a high-top basketball shoe, offers more support. New Balance and 3n2 offer options in a mid-cut and a low-cut. Of course, all plate shoes are designed for the protection of the top of the foot. You will also want to take into consideration the type of shin guard you are using. Be mindful of the bottom of your shin guard and its placement over your foot. Please refer to our Plate Shoe Buying Guide for more information.– Holly Montgomery
