Boots during basic

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Regular Soldier Recruitment' started by Gears, Apr 6, 2009.

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. Could'nt find very much under searching, do you have to wear the issue boots during basic? Or can you supply your own boots, i.e Lowa, Alt-Berg etc...
  2. Issued boots all the way. Sorry
  3. Only wear the issue ones unless you get a chit from the Medical Officer saying you need to wear a different, non-issue boot, such as Lowas.

    If you try and wear non-issue in training without the chit, you're going to be raped by a giant ape.
