    What do you think about switching to green leather boots?

    If you promise not to keep bringing up Uniform changes, I will promise to try and NOT think about it.

    Why do we need to keep changing the boots. First to green suede, then back to black, now to green leather?? We can't even where the dang things if we deploy. What is the point?? More wasted money...What about excellence in all we do? AFSO21?? Anyone? Seriously...whoever is getting their EPR/OPR Bullets for these changes ought to just get fired.

    Utterly pointless. The uniform should not require this degree of micro-management. We've got classic black, tan suede and green suede, and not enough of any of the three to shoe the entire force.

    Pick one that's useful (I like tan) and stick with it. Save some dough.

    Dear AF Leadership:


    Take the talking points for green boots of any kind, suede, leather, etc.... AND THROW THEM IN THE SHREDDER. PLEASE.

    If you guys listen to anything we tell you, please get these green boots out of your minds and just stick with the good ol' tried and true tan boots worn by EVERY OTHER branch of the service excluding the Coast Guard (and they wear them in CENTCOM as well...). They have airplane mechanics too, all of them, and for some reason we're the only ones that are whining about boots being staind. It's the only authorized boot in the AOR from what I understand, and this idea that a green boot of any type looks good is unfounded. This is the most pointless and ugliest uniform idea we've implemented yet. I refuse to buy the green boots. If staind boots on the flight line are that big of an issue, those units need to reimburse their folks for boots or issue a work boot to be worn ONLY on the flight line while working...

    Is this something being considered or are you just stirring the pot and giving the Uniform board stupid ideas?
