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
  • Lace pocket on tongue to hide shoelaces
  • 31.3 ounces per shoe (size 15)
  • The official plate shoes for MLB umpires
  • For baseball or softball
  • Men’s sizing in all widths

Love these umpire plate shoes!! Lightweight, comfortable, cool, and I like the added side instep coverage (in case my feet aren't perfectly aligned forward). These replace the earlier NB plate shoes. Those lasted 8 years (finally wore out on the inside and started to look ratty outside). I don't know if these will last as long, but they are way more comfortable and lighter. I ordered a half size larger. My last NB plate shoes were 11.5 2E (fit perfectly), and I ordered size 12 2E this time, and I'm glad I did. The half size larger than before fits perfectly.

Questions About This Product

Q: How much height does this shoe give me? What I mean is how many inches taller will I be? I'm asking because I want to know if the height of the shoe will affect my plate pants. I currently have the 3N2 Reaction Pro Low Umpire Plate Shoes and my plate pants were hemmed with those shoes in mind. How much of a difference will it make in terms of height?
– Alistair Mcevilly
A: 

There is a 1/2 inch difference between the shoes. The New Balance midsole is just under 1 1/2 inches. The 3n2 ​Reaction Pro Low Cut Umpire Plate Shoes, at the heel, are 2 inches tall, including the cleats.
