New Balance V3 MLB All-Black Mid-Cut Umpire Plate Shoes
OFFICIAL 2-MINUTE REVIEW: New Balance V3 MLB Mid-cut Umpire Plate Shoe
Rio Rancho, NM
These are surely among the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn! I feel super protected and supported in these umpire shoes, and they look super sharp and shiny with virtually no effort. After a few games, they protected my metatarsal region from a thrown bat, as well as the safety toe boxes repelling countless wild pitches that would have surely smashed the toes on both feet, all without a single sign of scratching! I love them!
I can't believe how comfortable these umpire plate shoes are. I highly recommend them.
Been umpiring 14 years on regular basis and this is first year ever I bought plate shoes. These are great! They are tremendously comfortable and easy to run in! I thought plate shoes would be "clunky" and hard to move around in but these are not! I umpired a 10u in-house travel softball game and got hit in foot many times did not feel any of them!
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Great shoes, but I am not sure how the laces should be tied. Are the laces supposed to come up through the holes in the protective plate and then tied? Or, are they to be tied in a different manner?|
– Paul Slominski
Glad to hear you like these plate shoes. For best results, it is recommended to lace the shoes all the way to the top eyelet, feed the laces up (from the backside) through the eyelets on the metatarsal plate and then tie.– Scott Kennedy
