Wilson MLB West Vest Pro Umpire Shin Guards
Cedar Creek, NE
Really good shin guards. I cut the end off so it would fit with my plate shoes.
I am sure these are great but I ordered the mid cut plate shoes. This triple knee guard is to long and the instep plate does not come off to accommodate the higher shoes. I went the Wilson Platinum Shin Guards with a double knee with the removable instep plate and am very happy with them.

These have worked well for me. Took one foul off the top pads and didn't feel a thing. Fairly streamlined compared to some of my partners gear. Good movement and the straps are not uncomfortable. I don't wear high socks or tights with these and don't have a complaint about the straps rubbing into my legs.
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
