Built for the plate umpire who wants superior foot protection and understands the game doesn’t happen just standing behind the dish.
This is the shoe you see on TV.
The New Balance 460 provides superior toe and metatarsal protection for the top of your foot. An athletic sole couples with a lightweight upper to help you make that quick sprint to third to cover the close play on the lead runner.
The tough composite toe and lace flap work together to protect the foot from foul balls and the errant catcher's spike. ABZORB® cushioning in the heel and forefoot provides long-lasting comfort. With this New Balance plate shoe you get the best in protection and comfort.
New Balance is the official provider of the on-the-field footwear for Major League Baseball Umpires.
