I have worn the Honig's low cut plate shoes for the past two years. They offer good protection, but have never seemed to fit quite right. They also seem heavier than other plate shoes I've seen. After two or three plate games in a day, I'm ready to be out of those shoes.

I have heard very good things about the Tecna brand plate shoe sold on the Gerry Davis Website. Lighter weight and the two umpires that I have spoken to say that they are as comfortable as a pair of tennis shoes. The price is competitive with other plate shoes I have seen.
It's what you learn after you think you know it all that's important!
