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.
I was amazed at how comfortable these New Balance Shoes are. Great shoes. Highly recommend.
These shoes are great. The fit as expected. No real breaking-in in period needed. This is my second pair. The last pair lasted 12 years. The only thing I don’t like is the mesh material they have on the sides. They are a pain to keep clean.
Algonquin , IL
The best plate shoes on the market. Easy to clean, comfortable, and protective. If you think you need wide ones, you probably don’t, as they run about a half size bigger.
