When Your Reebok Magistrate and Zig Umpire Shoes are Zapped Out

Jan 2nd, 2019

 

If you are looking for Reebok Umpire Shoes of any style, you will want to follow this article to the bottom for availability as ZERO are currently being made.

At one time, Reebok was in the ZONE for umpires. They were the Official Supplier to MLB Umpires (before New Balance).

Magistrates

They made a mid cut plate shoe called the Magistrate (see above) that many umpires were ZANY over. They fit just right and even came in wide widths, too!

Zigs

Reebok changed to the ZIG (or Zigtech) style (see below) in mid and low cut - both plate and base. These were well-liked by a smaller minority, but were too narrow for most.

They came in all-black and black with a ZESTY amount of white. The Reebok Zigs eventually went ZAG a.k.a. discontinued as well.
