Force3 Side-by-Side Comparisons: Shoe vs Plate Shoe BagJun 14th, 2016
Umpire Shoe Bag vs XL Plate Shoe Bag
You'll notice the additional 2" in width on the XL plate shoe bag more than the 1" in additional length over the standard shoe bag. These extra inches makes it much easier to pack away your plate shoes, mid-cut umpire or referee shoes or 13-sized or greater any shoes. Oh, you could cram the plate shoes into the smaller bag but it takes some work. Believe me, I've tried. And you are likely to scratch them up in the process.
Both shoe bags feature rip-stop nylon, mesh ventilation (top-right of each) and hand-carry strap.
