Wilson MLB West Vest Pro Umpire Shin Guards
Love ordering from Ump-Attire.com opposed to other umpire sites. My merchandise comes in a few days, not when the season is over. I am 5'11; the size 16'-17' is perfect for me. Ages 15 and under they're a little too much but college men's league or pro I always felt safe with my Wilson MLB West Vest Pro Umpire shin guards on.

Decided to upgrade from my starter Champro Kit (the chest and mask work great! The legs were a little uncomfortable) and decided to go with these. Couldn't be happier! My partner in my first game with them made a comment on how big they were but instantly I could tell they were going to be comfortable all game. Happened to take 3 balls off of them that game. It was a light thud and didn't feel a thing. Able to stay with the play and make a call on an advancing runner. Don't think there is anything above these to upgrade too. They get a little warm on hot days but the payoff is definitely worth it!

Really good shin guards. I cut the end off so it would fit with my plate shoes.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Can the toe guard be removed for a better fit on the plate shoes?|
– Gustavo Garza
The toe guard is attached via rivets and will rest over the tongue of your plate shoe for maximum protection. However, your plate shoes should provide adequate protection so some umpires cut this piece off.– Ty Unthank
