New Balance V3 Black & White 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.
New Balance plate shoes are excellent umpire plate shoes that I have stuck with for 15 years. If you take care of them, it’s easy to get several seasons out of a pair. I keep two pairs, one brand new for turf only and a set for grass fields. And I especially like that they come in a 4E size for extreme comfort when you have to wear them for many hours.
Best pair of plate shoes I have ever bought. Durability and comfort are great. Would recommend it over and over.
Very comfortable and easy to clean. Love the lace pocket in the tongue!
Questions About This Product

– Bryan Stahl
This shoe is without the MLB logo on it. It did, at one point, carry the logo on the lace pocket at the top of the shoe's tongue.–
