Black boots and MTP?

Discussion in 'Military Clothing & Boots' started by rhodopsin, Nov 23, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Are black boots permitted with MTP? - or must they be brown?

    I realise early on some "mixed dress" is permitted and so black boots may be tolerated. But ultimately, will black boots be prohibited once the transfer is complete and no mixed dress is permitted?

    I ask because I am thinking to go and buy some Altberg sneakers which are only availble in black. And we move to MTP imminently.
  2. My unit is mostly in MTP and mostly wearing black boots. Have you done anything crazy - like asked your CoC?
  3. Woah there toppers don be gettin too crazy now!

  4. Altberg have started build their boots in brown leather, I would check their website.
  5. i'd wait out mate, but these are my Lowa's:



    i think brown won't be enforced until at least 2013.
  6. RM just back off tour paraded in black boots. Brown suede looks shite and will be difficult to maintain for in camp and smart occasions. Brown leather has to be the way forward.
  7. If only CGS would issue some direction to the Chain of Command...

  8. Surely that decision should rest with the RSM, once he's squared it with the CO.

    Well since you have people going around with jackets tucked in like shirts and more badges than Xmas Elf it's not like it's totally out of the realms of possibility now is it?
