I agree with FU, I won't ever do a fastpitch game without my plate shoes (at least not on purpose!!). I took a shot that probably broke my big toe in a 10U game my first year of umpiring it was LOW level "downtown" ball but since then I worn my steel toed work boots (they were boat anchors) until I could afford my POS that I have today.

Like FU said it is one expense that tends to be put off, and the $150 plate shoes don't have to be bought there are some decent $35-50 protective toe shoes that would fill in until you get the $$ for the nice ones!
