The official on-field shoe for MLB umpires for the 2017 season, the MU460v3 New Balance Umpire Plate Shoes are designed for that extra look of authority with its hi-gloss finish that is easy to clean while maintaining the comfort, breathability and traction you expect in an on-field athletic shoe.
The redesigned floating instep guard provides advanced features. First, it provides maximum protection where you need it most, on the inside of your feet, without the extra bulk on the outside where you don’t. Second, it “releases” from the top making it easier to take on and off and to lace your sholaces. Third, there is a mesh strap that creates space between your shoe and guard for air to flow.
This mid-cut style is all-black with MLB logo on the tongue and heel and with NB logo on sole.
