New Balance MLB Black & White Low-Cut Umpire Base Shoes
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.
MOST COMFORTABLE New Balance base shoe yet!!! I have wide and flat feet, usually my feet are screaming after a DH...but not with these umpire shoes!!!
