These new shoes have more than doubled our selection into what I think, with 5 brands from on-sale Spot-bilts to top of the line Official Footwear Patent Leather, is perhaps the most well-rounded court referee shoes selection available.
THE NEW SHOES
See some quick information below or click the links to view more information plus alternative and zoomed views you'll only find at ump-attire.com.
- New Balance 888 Court Referee Shoe
Our only mid-cut option, this is a shoe with some solid features from the trusted New Balance brand.
- Official Footwear Throwdown Leather Referee Shoes
The all-leather counterpart to the much heralded Ultimate Patent Leather Shoe, was the recipient of many customer requests from those who loved the Official Footwear features but preferred a non-patent leather.
- Pentagon Patent Leather Referee Shoe
We're cheating a little by calling this a new shoe. We actually had a small inventory for only a few weeks last year before a mix up with Pentagon and their overseas manufacturer led to these not being available during last year's actual season.
- Reebok Breezy Patent Leather
Although a nice addition, we have sold out of the relatively small amount we had on our first order. Plus Reebok is out already as well. You'd think we would have learned our lesson from Pentagon last year but it's not the norm for a company to announce a new product only to run out before the season begins.
And not to ignore the top part of the uniform we have added the "When-are-you-going-to-make-that" Grey Ultimate V-Neck Referee Shirt, the "don't-you-all-have-that" Reversible Referee Jacket (for both football and basketball), and the "I'm-looking-for-a-shirt-that-doesn't-show-through-my" V-Neck HOTSPORT loose fit shirt.
Yet other items including mini-crew socks and Mueller injury protection items just seemed to be no-brainers to add to the mix.
