24 posts in this topic

Guys, ..

I took a chance because of the price, and , ...well, ....they don't fit. I need an 11.

So, here you go, ....brand new 450's I just tried on,.... size 10.5 (D)

$60 shipped ....

Email me @ jmetz66@yahoo.com

I figured I'd try here instead of sending back!

Jeff, what size do you normally wear?

If this is an attempt to ask why I didn't order a 1/2 size up, please don't.

I normally wear a 10.5, but decided at that price, it may be worth trying it out. Most say size up, but have had few say that their normal size fit them while only being a tad snug. For me, unwearable.

It was a stupid decision

I want to give someone from the brotherhood a chance instead of sending them back, but I want to try and turn this around pretty fast, so let me know if there's interest!

Thanks ;)

I was making sure the shoes wouldn't fit me. :)

Fair enough! :)

Sorry if there was tone in that response, ....I'm just so pi$$ed at myself! :tantrum:

Does anyone know if going to an EE helps the NB450s? I'm not even sure an 11 D will suit me!? I don't have a wide foot at all, but man, ....NBs are just funny! I'd love to pick off a pair for a spare but I don't want to screw up again! :shakehead:

I sized up and that was fine with me.

Come on guys...

No one wears a size 10 (and would need a 10.5 in this shoe), and is looking for a new or back-up pair of plates?

$60 shipped?

This will stay up over the weekend, then I'll just send them back....

The 450s were notorious for running a half size small in any width. Supposedly the new 460s actually run true to size.

OK, I lied, ....

One more day, after work they're leaving, by 4pm EST, they'll be shipped back for a refund.

Last chance for the brotherhood to have a brand new pair of 450's at $60 shipped

Thanks .... damn, ....would like a little white, ....and regardless of their upgrade, the 460 is far uglier than the 450 (IMHO)

      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 shoelaces. 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.
      FEATURES
      Dispersion Instep Guard provides more inner foot protection ABZORB® - a blend of Dupont™ Engage® and Isoprene rubber - in heel and forefoot provides superior shock absorption and cushioning throughout the game Strategically placed mesh strap on inside of metatarsal guard that promotes air flow and breathability Guard releases for easy on/off Mid-cut provides greater ankle support Hi-gloss is easy to clean / polishable Snug-fit integrated neoprene sock liner provides additional comfort between foot and hard toe Nubby outsole for enhanced traction 23.1 ounces The official plate shoes for MLB umpires For baseball or softball

      Hello all - 
      A fellow teacher is wanting to umpire for the first time this year. Since everyone in this community is amazing, I thought I'd reach out and see if anyone has some extra equipment lying around to help get him started. I've got him hooked up with base shoes, shin guards, and ball bags that I wasn't using anymore. Here's a list of other things we're looking for (preferably at a cheap price and in good condition):
      Mask (just a basic Dyna-Lite if available) Chest protector (XL or 13 inch) Plate shoes (Size 13 2E would be ideal, but 13 D will work, too) Thanks!
