Official Review: Smitty All-Black Mid-Cut Umpire Plate Shoes

The first umpire plate shoe by Smitty is an ode to the previous New Balance 460 plate shoe. Excelling in comfort and a professional genuine leather shine, this is a wallet-friendly, all-level protective pair of plate shoes.

Shoes fit great. My feet got a little sore this summer when I wore them for more than 3 games in a row with softball tournaments this summer, and the metatarsal guard is starting to tear and I'm not sure how long it will last. I've taken a few missed low balls off the guard, barely felt a thing, pretty good shoes over all. Make them a bit better cushioned for those long multiple games you're in them but aside from that, it is a good shoe.

I love the shoe. Only drawback is they are very hard to get on without a shoe horn.

The Smitty umpire plate shoe is a solid well-built shoe. But umpires have to run and be flexible when moving on their feet. These are akin to steel toe work boots. The shoe is too stiff. I found them too heavy. The width is too narrow. I do many games alone at the plate with the umpire shortages and your feet swell after wearing them for two games it's painful. I wore 3n2 plate shoes for a few years and do over 70 games a year in them. I just bought another pair in 2E width. So if you have a wide foot do not buy Smitty.

Questions About This Product

Q: Is there a lace management feature on these shoes or do the laces just flop around on the plate of the shoe?
– Tim Zemaitis
A: 

No lace management on these Smitty shoes. The laces come through the eyelets and tie on top of the guard plate.
