New Balance V3 MLB All-Black Low-Cut Umpire Plate Shoes
OFFICIAL 2-MINUTE REVIEW: New Balance MLB Low-Cut Umpire Plate Shoes
Phenix City, AL
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.

These shoes are fantastic! I have extremely wide feet, and have been wearing the old style NB in 12.5 EEEE. These new ones are much lighter, at 26.2 oz each in size 12. My old ones were 32 oz each. Also they are much better ventilated and look much sharper and stay clean better. Also much improved traction. I am extremely pleased with these, and the service I received from Ump-Attire.com. They even 2nd day shipped them to make it in time for my first D3 plate of this season. Highly recommend!
