Are you allowed to wear your own trainers in Phase 1 or do you have to wear the issued ones, just wondering as i love my pair of shoes i run in and worn them in just nicely?

Yes mate, I wore mine. I'd sewn cap badges on the tongue and where it said Nike Air I skillfully editted it to 'Nike Air Corps'

Issued only- It is just one more type of uniform in phase one, so everybody dresses the same, looks the same.
You may grow attatched to them, you never know! I know of several people that wore their silver road slappers out on the town- They were generally quite unpopular people though. ;)

Nice, think i'll skip on the accessorising though lol

Edited - Just read the other posts.

Guess i'll have to share my love with some shadows then :)

Yeah you can, anyone else who tells you differently is lying, silver ghosts are preferred though. :roll:

You get issued them. You wear them. It's basic training for the finest Army in the world, not a fashion parade.


I wouldn't worry about what you can and can't wear just yet. The nice men with stripes at the depot will see you right.

I'm soo confused, some say yes some say no, i can't handle more than 1 variable!
Why not compromise with HMF and wear one of theirs and one of yours?

You'll be good in the Army then. :roll:

And unless things have changed in 9 years (which they might) then only silver shads.
