Description

The official on-field shoe for MLB umpires for the 2017 season, the MU460v3 New Balance Umpire Plate Shoes are designed for that extra look of authority with its hi-gloss finish that is easy to clean while maintaining the comfort, breathability and traction you expect in an on-field athletic shoe.

The redesigned floating instep guard provides advanced features. First, it provides maximum protection where you need it most, on the inside of your feet, without the extra bulk on the outside where you don't. Second, it "releases" from the top making it easier to take on and off and to lace your sholaces. Third, there is a mesh strap that creates space between your shoe and guard for air to flow.

This mid-cut style is all-black high gloss finish with MLB logo on the tongue and heel and with NB logo on sole.

Features

  • Dispersion Instep Guard provides more inner foot protection
  • Toe box is designed of the highest grade Thermal Polyurethane possible, with greater density in high impact zones
  • ABZORB® - a blend of Dupont™ Engage® and Isoprene rubber - in heel and forefoot provides superior shock absorption and cushioning throughout the game
  • Strategically placed mesh strap on inside of metatarsal guard that promotes air flow and breathability
  • Guard releases for easy on/off
  • Mid-cut provides greater ankle support
  • High gloss is easy to clean / polishable
  • Snug-fit integrated neoprene sock liner provides additional comfort between foot and hard toe
  • Nubby outsole for enhanced traction
  • 31.3 ounces per shoe (size 15)
  • The official plate shoes for MLB umpires
  • For baseball or softball

I Do Not Recommend this plate shoe for an umpire who does multiple games a day during the peak of baseball. They are defective they rip/tear easily where padding is stitched to shoe. Very poor design! I'm now on my 3rd pair in 16 months. Don't be mislead by the positive reviews. I too would write positive reviews if I had a steady supply of these plate shoes! Besides that major flaw, I really like this shoe. Thank goodness for Ump-Attire.com's customer satisfaction. They have been very understanding and have replaced the defective shoes. I hope New Balance will go back to the drawing board and fix the defect of the shoe.

Good plate umpire shoes. Evolution compare as last generation. More protection cover inside and better look!!!

I was unsure about these plate shoes at first. After the first game I was thinking they were okay but not great. After the second game they feel more broken in and are very comfortable. They are still new so I can't comment on durability because they haven't been hit or stepped on but they look great and are very comfortable!

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
A: 

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.
