New Balance MLB All-Black Low-Cut Umpire Base Shoes
San Jose, CA
These shoes seem to be great. They seem to be comfortable and have soles that will obviously have good traction. I have a pair of NB plate shoes and my regular size is just a tad too big. So I bought the next size down with these shoes and they are way too small. I wish there was more consistency with New Balance shoes. Otherwise, once I get this figured out, I think they will be great shoes.

These were a life saver...definitely worth the money.
Extremely comfortable. These base shoes look great and help add style and professionalism to any umpire. Having the same equipment that MLB umpires wear makes a difference to me. I find myself looking at what some other umpires wear, and it's laughable. I take this seriously, and your equipment, no matter the task is as important as your knowledge of the game. Great product.
