This is the shoe you see on TV. Built for the plate umpire who wants superior foot protection and understands the game doesn’t happen just standing behind the dish, the New Balance 460 provides superior toe and metatarsal protection on top coupled to an athletic sole and lightweight upper for 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, while ABZORB® cushioning in the heel and forefoot provides long-lasting comfort. New Balance is the official provider of on-field umpire footwear for Major League Baseball.
