New Balance MLB Black & White Low-Cut Umpire Base Shoes
I am the New Balance poster child. It's all I wear is New Balance. New Balance is making major improvements with their field shoe! It's lightweight and the breathability is amazing. This shoe is lightweight and feels so comfortable standing on the hard, hot dirt. It's hard to believe you have shoes on! Thanks New balance!
Very comfortable and sharp looking shoe, however they are a pain to clean. I think the white looks better, but I recommend going for the all black to save you significant cleaning time. I think the trick to these are having a brush, especially for the mesh areas. I won't deduct any points because I really do like these base shoes once they are clean!
I've been umpiring for over 20 years, and I can say, without question, that these are the most comfortable umpire base shoes I've ever worn. I've worn every major brand, and nothing else comes close.
