They look sensible enough, just an idea, try Clarks for a similar thing you'd get a decent pair for less than £30.

By the way, nice to see you typing in "Humanspeak" ...lol... :wink:

I'm a STAB, so I don't really know about such things, but I've got an idea about what they're after and I'm still awake so I'll reply.

While the Army tries hard to be inclusive, it has a tradition of soldiers being men that it finds difficult to overcome. A bloke would understand what is meant by lace-up shoes.

Lace-up shoes are worn when you're trying to be smart. They look better with shirt and tie and trousers than a pair of grotty trainers.

This is the niche that you're required to fit into.

Presumably, you're required to bring some smart attire, so the shoes are intended to match that. In your case, that will probably mean black polishable flatties (or, at least, minimal heel).

So, no, I don't think that your choice of mens' DM matt boots will go particularly nicely with a dark plain skirt and you'll spend ages trying to bull them up.


Of course, I may well be wrong about the shoe requirement, so you'd be better off discussing the matter with whoever sent you your kit list.

It probably doesn't help that you can't buy that many smart laced up shoes for women. The last pair I had were school shoes.

Smart shoes to be worn with smart clothes are what is required (male or female). I know someone (male) who had smart shoes without laces and these have caused no concern either (so far).

Black lace up for men, medium/low heeled court shoes for ladies to go with a smart suit. This does OK for Officers mess so should be OK for anywhere else.

I'm sorry, but if this person has such an issue about something as inconsequential as this, is s/he suitable for the British Army? Moreover, would you like such a person to be guarding your six?

This has GOT to be a wah!

What threads can we expect next?

"HELP!!! Someone tell me what brand of toothpaste i need"

or

"AAAGGHHHHH!!! it dusnt say anyfing on the joining instructions that i need to breath. Shud i breath or not??"



9/10 for wanting to do it right but ffs, your first 'test' is using your common sense prior to entering the gates.

I would hate to be DS at an ATR if the internet had not been invented. How would recruits manage to even turn up without ARRSE??

Too late now you've ordered them, you don't need them. You get issused your shoes for your pass off. So you'll never wear them anyway.
