  2. Excellent! Shouldn’t affect heat. This was Justin Klemm’s tip he gave me years ago. He is the former PBUC and The Umpire School Exec Dir who is now in charge of replay at MLB. Never steered me wrong.
  3. Glad you enjoyed the webcast! And thanks for your business. Yes, I read your post. I can’t speak for that retailer, but each year we see more retail competitors moving away from their commitment on carrying all umpire shoe brands, styles and sizes. But definitely NB is making mids and lows in both bk and with white. We have current stock in most styles/sizes plus all styles and sizes are booked for 2021 delivery starting in January as usual.
  4. Answered on your new post that the V3s are NOT being discontinued. What has happened is because NB switched logos AND changed SKU numbers it has been problematic to rid inventory/SKUs from the previous logo to make room for the new logo current SKUs. For automated processes, like we use (e.g. website real-time inventory sync & bar code scanning for packing), this made things a little more complicated for us and confusing for customers. At one time, that meant we had about 8 NB plate shoe styles, rather than the typical 4. Why we wrote the article. https://www.ump-attire.com/
  5. Not discontinuing. Just those shoes have a different logo on the tongue than the current version. https://www.ump-attire.com/Blog/PRODUCT-ALERT-MLB-Logo-vs-NB-Logo-on-New-Balance-Umpire-Shoes
  6. Good analysis. A few additive points. 3n2 is pretty popular with softball umpires. Generally, the protective concerns are much less - and not just with shoes. Do know there was a bad batch of shoes in 2016 that caused some of the lesser protective perspectives out there with baseball umpires. This was corrected shortly thereafter.
  7. You can also add a layer of silk, 4-6” where your shin guards snag. That will help them slide more easily.
