Smitty All-Black Mid-Cut Umpire Plate Shoes
Needed to wear right out of box, great fit and comfortable. No blisters or hot spots.
After the last few weeks wearing the Smitty plate shoes I have been very pleased! I was very weary of buying these due to the unavailable width options for my typical fit. I have found that my 4E width is not a problem for these in my normal size. These shoes clean up very well unlike others with newer mesh options. I'm sticking with these for good!
Solid umpire plate shoe for the price. A little less protection then the new model New Balance but solid for most high school games and down. A little hard to clean would be my only complaint. It’s pretty comfortable. I’m very flat footed and these shoes are good to my feet.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||How in the world do you lace these plate shoes?? I currently have an old pair of New Balance.|
– Lisa Dilullo
Lace these shoes in a traditional crossing pattern, through the loop on the tongue to the top desired eyelets. Feed laces through the eyelets in the metatarsal plate, then securely tie the shoes.
