New Balance’s first low cut umpire plate shoes, the MUL460v3s are designed for that extra look of authority with its high 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 buffer that creates space between your shoe and guard for air to flow.
This low-cut style is all-black with MLB logo on the tongue and NB logo on sole.
