Reebok Zig Magistrate All-Black Low Umpire Plate Shoes
I bought these midway through the season last year. While they were very comfortable, I did 13 games in them last year and 6 games this season before the top guard broke free on the right shoe. Upon further inspection, the left one is almost broke free as well. I would never buy these again. Too much money for too little usage.
Nice plate shoe, comfortable, runs narrow so size 1 up.
I ended up sending these back because they didn't fit, but I would have sent them back regardless. I like the look of them, but was unsure of how it would perform in wetter conditions. The tread would be fine, but there is space between the sole and the rest of the shoe due to its design, and I'm scared mud, dirt and rocks could congregate there and become uncomfortable or annoying. Like I said, I returned them before testing them on the field, but it was one of my concerns.
Most comfortable shoes I have ever owned!!! More comfortable than my base shoes which are Nike Diamond Trainers. I bought a pair of the base shoes because these plate shoes were so comfortable.
I have to say this line of Reebok Plate and field shoes are the worst I have ever purchased. The quality of the shoe breaks down quickly and not worth the money.
