Great umpire plate shoe. Very comfortable. Cleaning is very easy. Recommend this highly.

I've worn mid-cut umpire plate shoes for over ten years. Recently I had to borrow a pair of New Balance low-cuts. They were so comfortable I had to get a pair! I ordered the wrong size and Ump-Attire.com was great in sending a different size right away. Got the right size and the shoes fit great. Plenty of support and protection. I feel I can run easier, too. The high polish finish on the leather looks sharp.
I have a narrow foot. The "D" width fits like a glove. These umpire plate shoes are lightweight and very comfortable. They look good and easy to clean. I recommend them.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Loosing a toenail on left foot - Little League game, took a direct hit to big toe, just wearing a my regular New Balance cleats. Will these "plate shoes" provide any extra protection to toes?
– Doug Murray
Ouch! It is always risky getting behind the plate without proper protection. These New Balance Umpire Plate Shoes will absolutely provide more protection than a regular shoe or cleat. They feature a toe box designed with the highest grade Thermal Polyurethane (technical term for extremely hard plastic) possible to protect your toes. The metatarsal plate protecting the top and sides of your feet is also manufactured from Thermal Polyurethane making this one of the most protective plate shoes on the market today.– Josh Mann
