    Not because I like the pattern, or think it is cool. I know that very day that I purchase the new uniform will be my last day shining boots - ever.

    Cleaning the new boots is 11ty times worse than shining the old ones.

    Doesn't the AF shine only the front anyways?

    And what is with the clicking thing you put on your soles?

    No - if at all - I'd say about 30-40% actually put a good shine on their boots, the rest have just black boots, or minimal shine.

    and

    WTF are you talking about, clicky things? :confused:

    Ahhhh good officer :)

    You did not have to go through the torment of the TI's and the heel savers, aka clicky things. The MTI's march so much, so they put metal things on the bottom of their boots aka heel savers and most people in boot would freeze when they would hear them. I'd bet most enlisted that hear them get scared for a second when they hear them then realize they are out of the military

    i wear ACUs, and it is not hard to maintain tan boots. all you have to do is not walk around like an idiot and keep in mind they stain ez. i have had a pair of tan boots for 6 months now and they still look like they came just out of the box! get the kit with the white eraser and stiff bristled brush and you will be OK!

    I don't buy that horseshit. Work uniforms shouldn't be "pretty". Its completely fucking ridiculous for me to spend a half hour every night shining boots and pressing a uniform that will be fucked up 2 hours into the workday from me crawling all over antennas and shit.

    The newest/final version of them has them as a greenish color similar to the green in the uniform.

    I couldn't imagine wearing anything other than the brown BDUs. From the pics in the first post, it looks like there is no rank insignia. Did they relocate it to somewhere hard to see or are the two people modeling it officers?
