Description

The 460 New Balance Umpire Plate Shoes are designed for that extra look of authority with a hi-gloss finish that is easy to clean while maintaining the comfort, breathability and traction you expect in an on-field athletic shoe.

The redesigned floating instep guard provides advanced features. First, it provides maximum protection where you need it most, on the inside of your feet, without the extra bulk on the outside where you don't. Second, it "releases" from the top making it easier to take on and off and to lace your shoelaces. Third, there is a mesh strap that creates space between your shoe and guard for air to flow.

This mid-cut style is all-black high gloss finish with New Balance logo on the side, top plate and sole.

FEATURES

  • Dispersion Instep Guard provides more inner foot protection
  • Toe box is designed of the highest grade Thermal Polyurethane possible, with greater density in high impact zones
  • ABZORB® - a blend of Dupont™ Engage® and Isoprene rubber - in heel and forefoot provides superior shock absorption and cushioning throughout the game
  • Strategically placed mesh strap on inside of metatarsal guard that promotes air flow and breathability
  • Guard releases for easy on / off
  • Mid-cut provides greater ankle support
  • High gloss is easy to clean / polishable
  • Snug-fit integrated neoprene sock liner provides additional comfort between foot and hard toe
  • Nubby outsole for enhanced traction
  • Pocket on tongue to hide shoelaces
  • Weight: Up to 31.3 ounces per shoe
  • The official plate shoes for MLB umpires
  • For baseball or softball
  • Men’s sizing in all widths

Just received these shoes after having them highly recommended by a colleague. The fit is as expected and they are very comfortable. The protection looks great! Will be trying them out at a game later this week.

The insoles that came with them sucked, but once I put in a different pair of insoles they’ve been great. The first game I had them I got hit in the foot and didn’t feel a thing. It’s definitely a worthwhile investment if you plan to umpire often.

I love these shoes. I’ve worn them for a few games and they’re really comfortable now that they’re broken in. They offer plenty of protection, and yet are relatively lightweight. The shoes also look really nice.
