    Tell Us: Boots

    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.

    Do we really not have enough of the green boots for everyone? I only wear the tan ones because sometimes I feel like it. I have 2 pairs of green ones from deploying and the clothing sales here has had the boots for over a year. What base is left that doesn't have the green boots for sale?

    Boots? Good question, but ya'll need to have a better discussion about a hat that is GAY (the Army beret). All's I'm saying is that a GAY hat is more disturbing than boot color.

    Not when the color of the boot is f*ing green. The carpet at work is not sage green. Therefore our boots will never blend in with our natural surroundings. There are at least some sand colored carpets. not sage green tho

    No offense Bro, but the ABU is almost as ridiculous as the ACU (Army Combat Abortion). Given the choice, I'd wear the Air Force uniform and not the Army hat and abortion uniform.

    Just curious---Why would you get green boots for a deployment? And last time I heard, they were no longer going to the green boots (not for posotive on that)

    Because that is what they stock at the LCI store on base. Green boots are part of the uniform so that's what you get. I didn't deply wearing DCU's, I deployed with ABU's. However, the army gives out tan boots as part of the RFI issue at CST to airmen filling ILO slots. Or at least they did a year ago when I was at CST.

    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...
