    I'm looking for a nice pair of boots to bring with me to "A" school. I work on a buoy tender, so the boots I have are looking a little rough.. I want the kind of boots that already have a shiny toe and are composite toe. Does anyone know some good brands or websites? Thanks!

    Don't waste your money on boots with shiny toes. Once they get scratched (and they will) you can't fix it and they look like crap.
    Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.

    I wear Corcoran's. Best boots I've ever owned.
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    I have the boots Rebecca mentioned. They are very nice and have held up great. They do get a little toasty being full leather but this is nice in colder environments. Only problem is that they are steel toe which means according to the Uniform Manual are not authorized.

    Had a reservist in A school that had these http://www.steel-toe-shoes.com/Merc...toe-boots. Said he used them on his police force and loved them.
    If you were hoping for the A Team you will be sorry to know you got the F Troop.

    odds are at A school you won't be allowed to wear anything but superboot III's - everything else is no longer authorized. corcorans look nice and they are easy to keep shiny with leather luster but if A school and your next unit are by the book at all (like mine) you could be out of $100-150. I'd just spend the tax-free and shipping cost-free superboots from the UDC but thats just my two cents.

    You aren't required to wear superboots at A school. As long as your boots are within the regs, you can wear them.

    I will have to agree with Cooch on this. The uniform manual doesn't say you have to wear super boots it does state what they have to be for safety and height requirement along with toe and sole has to be.
