New Balance V3 All-Black Mid-Cut Umpire Plate Shoes
Official Review: New Balance V3 Umpire Plate Shoes
Ty Unthank takes you behind the plate and shares why MLB Umpires prefer New Balance Plate Shoes.
These are very comfortable and protective. Very easy to clean with the exception of the mesh...but with a little work, it can be done.
Great reliable product. Fit is comfortable, the wide foot option being key to that comfort. The pocket for the laces gives a nice clean look. Easy to clean and nice shine. Protection is excellent, never took a shot to the foot that I’ve ever felt in these shoes.
My second pair. Very comfortable and protects my feet well.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||I need to replace my old NB plate shoes but I am worried about the leather being synthetic. I know how to put a shine on them using Kiwi Parade Gloss but I don't know what products work with synthetic leather. Any advice? Thanks.|

Absolutely. No need to worry. We recommend Pedag Shoe Polish on NB plate shoes. Use the black color to darken and fill in scuffs. Use the clear to maintain a high functioning shine.– Ty Unthank
