Wilson MLB West Vest Pro Umpire Shin Guards
These umpire shin guards are the real deal. A lot of protection and very comfortable! They are a bit bulkier than the platinum pair but I don't feel any mobility issues with them. I am looking forward to using them this season!
Great pair of umpire shin guards, very sturdy and you'll feel protected back there. My only problem with them is the plastic flap that goes over the plate shoes that aren't removable. I like having it for JuCo games but it feels a little silly to wear for those youth games. That being said I'll probably cut it off.
Really good umpire shin guards. Highly recommended! Comfortable and well made.
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
