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

Very comfortable shoe. Much lighter than my old steel toe shoes I had for years. Looking forward to using these in a game.

THE shoe for plate work for umps with wide-width feet…4E. Great support, they look great and are easy to clean. The hidden laces protect against trips. They can take a 100-MPH pitch or a 200-pound catcher’s misstep. Great shoe.

Best plate shoes available. I wish they would hold up a little better. Only get two seasons out of them. They begin to rip at the cloth sections that are on both sides under the instep protection.

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.
– Michael Lechnar
A: 

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.
