New Balance V3 MLB All-Black Mid-Cut Umpire Plate Shoes
Official 2-Minute Review: New Balance MLB V3 Umpire Plate Shoes
I bought these umpire plate shoes as a replacement for the New Balance pair I have used for the last 10 seasons. This new pair is an updated version of what I previously had, and I am extremely happy with the improvements! They were super comfy right out of the box. I used them for 4 games in 2 days to start off the season, and I can't wait to get behind the plate again! The added protection looks great and is not too heavy. Great pair of shoes!!
Wow...These umpire plate shoes really look amazing. You can almost see your reflection when the sun is out. Really lightweight compared to some of the others I've owned. Comfy thus far as well. I can't wait to see how they hold up after 50-60 games this season.

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!
