The official on-field shoe of MLB umpires, the MU460 All-Black Umpire Plate Shoes are designed to provide 40% more coverage than the previous model, while weighing 10% less.


  • ABZORB® - a blend of Dupont™ Engage® and Isoprene rubber - in heel and forefoot provides superior shock absorption and cushioning throughout the game.
  • Leather upper for natural comfort and durability
  • Multi-direction lug sole for traction
  • EVA foam midsole for durability and comfort
  • Toe box is designed of the highest grade Thermal Polyurethane possible, with greater density in high impact zones.
  • Crisp and professional black upper with embossed MLB logo on tongue and back of shoe
  • Available in D (standard), EE (wide) and 4E (extra wide) shoe widths
  • For baseball or softball

Fit: Because of its hardness, this plate shoe tends to run small. For a more comfortable fit we recommend wearing a 1/2 size larger than you normally wear. For example, if you normally purchase a size 8, we recommend purchasing a size 8 1/2. Also consider a wider width shoe if appropriate.

Stock Note: This is the New Balance Plate Shoe with Black "N". If the size you want is showing out of stock, check availability of the NB Plate Shoe with WHITE "N" here.

The first time I put a plate shoe on I took one to the foot. So glad my partner had an extra old pair for me to have. They were also a little small and I looked forward to buying my own pair. I have been wearing them around the house this winter to break them in. I bought a half size larger than I normally wear and they fit perfectly. I lucked out on the price as I saw the black Friday deal, but even at full price I am more than pleased. I know what I am getting my foot into and also know when I take my foot back out my toes will be in one piece.

Great shoe. Feels real good, and has a lot of support just like wearing any New Balace shoe. Comfortable and can stay on the dish all day long in this shoe. I've had Reebok before but they were too stiff and hard wearing. Love this shoe.
