    maybe if you're deployed in a combat zone or something, i could understand it then...but otherwise that sounds absurd

    Don't they go by the heel of the boots and the overall condition of it? If the back of the heel is arching up pretty badly or the boots are all cut up, they will issue you new boots.

    Every 6 months last time I checked. My RA would never check the condition of my boots, just give me the letter to go get them. Until my wife threw them out:rant: , I had 10 pairs, brand new in the boxes.

    my work boots are pretty fucked... tore up bad, heel is seperating and flat, metal showing in the toe

    the problem is that when I went to get new boots I showed up in my half-ass shiney ones that don't look bad. I've had them for about 3 years and only wear them to work, then switch into the shitty ones so my 'good' pair doesn't get wrecked. My douchebag RA says we are only allowed to have one pair of military issued boots at a time :weak:
