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. After polishing my boots and 'attempting' to bull them, i put them on and the polish began to crack and flake off .....
    .... Can anyone help me out here, why are they doing this, what am i doing wrong and how to fix it

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks in advance - Laura
  2. Stupid question but have you broke them in?
  3. Yes i have done
  4. When you bull them are you using small circles or just blathering the polish on?
  5. Maybe this will help?
  6. small circles
  7. Fcuked if I know then. Sorry
  8. ok thank you anyway stabandswat and i will take a look at that site allyn
  9. Are you taking the bulling over the natural creases? If so these will crack when you walk and you'll suffer the polish flaking off.
  10. no my bulling doesnt reach the crease
  11. Well if you ever 'ahem' need help bulling your crease just let me know.
  12. In that case check out the thread previously mentioned and try each of the suggested methods until one works! :D
  13. Yeah ok thanks you all, ill just keep trying until they dont crack.. lol
  14. Don't know the army regs but can't you go to a cobblers and ask for one of them toe cap jobs? Should stop that part of the boot moving and cracking then.
