New Balance V3 MLB All-Black Low-Cut Umpire Plate Shoes
OFFICIAL 2-MINUTE REVIEW: New Balance MLB Low-Cut Umpire Plate Shoes
Just bought and received these shoes last week. I've had the same plate shoes for a number of years and finally broke down and ordered new ones. These are SOOO comfortable and light. Excellent shine, easy to clean, and look good.

I've only had a chance to use these plate shoes in a couple of games since receiving them. Have to say, the light weight combined with the sturdiness is pretty impressive so far. Great fit in the EE size, and as comfortable a pair of umpire plate shoes that I've owned. I'm a little concerned about the laces feeding through the loop on the end of the tongue, but I may be dead wrong with my concerns.

I have been wearing the Reebok Field Magistrate low-cut plate shoe for about 10 years and LOVED it, but the soles were almost slick from wear, so I decided to go ahead and purchase a new pair of shoes. Since Reebok is out of the umpire shoe biz, I purchased the New Balance Low cut plate shoe. I am a size 12-D, and the Reebok shoe fit my foot PERFECTLY. The NB fit very well, also. They arrived the day before our state association training scrimmage. I wore my new shoes and was very pleased with the comfort, support, and look of the new shoes. For those of you looking to buy this shoe, for me, they were a little snug at the metatarsal area, but not uncomfortable, and never noticed after I got on the diamond. The heel is a little loose but I plan to add a heel insert. New Balance has allowed me to rest easy about a major concern when it comes to my umpiring equipment and apparel.
