New Balance V3 MLB All-Black Mid-Cut Umpire Plate Shoes
OFFICIAL 2-MINUTE REVIEW: New Balance V3 MLB Mid-cut Umpire Plate Shoe
, Scotland, Edinburgh
Comfortable umpire plate shoe to wear on long days. Worth every penny.
Fits great! I have only done one game while wearing these shoes. I was the only umpire running down the line to cover the play at first and then backpedaling to cover a play at the plate with no issues. Great shoe for the price.

Always have worn New Balance plate shoes and very excited about getting these new ones. Very comfortable shoe but very disappointed in the durability. Only 14 games in to a college season and the toe guard is ripping off at the bottom. I clean my equipment after every game and there is a bare spot starting to form on the top just below the toe guard. Overall great shoe for comfort and protection but very disappointed in the durability.
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
