    Hi Aux forum members!

    I'm in the process of buying my ODU and Trops uniforms.  I have read that it is not recommended that we purchase the ODU boots from the UDC as they are expensive and very heavy.  Does anyone have recommendations on where to purchase boots?  Any recommendations on where to get the Trops shoes?

    Thanks!!

    I buy my shoes from regular shoe stores. They have to be black with no stitching or other ornamentation so are fairly easy to find. Can't help you on the boots; mine were castoffs from my son's JROTC unit. The uniform guide describes the requirements so you should be able to shop for something a bit cheaper than the official version. Or you could try eBay. Have you checked with your flotilla and division to see if they have some sort of uniform exchange program?

    Just what NYBo said. I found boots that met requirements at a shoe store. You can check Amazon as well for either shoes or boots, although I haven't bought them that way. Search for "tactical boot" or "military oxford" and you should find acceptable alternatives. Perhaps you should download the AuxMan and the CG Uniform manual to check the exact wording for yourself.

    Thanks for your reply!  My flotilla has not been very helpful in regards to obtaining information on where to get uniforms.  I have asked and received very generic answers.  So, I have obtained answers on my own via researching other Flotilla websites and the Aux Manual and Uniform Procurement Guide.

    If I could throw my $.02 in... If you have a police/fire uniform shop close by, the type of boots specified are the same as many fire depts. wear for an in-station boot. This way you can at least try something on to see what you like before you buy something over the internet.

    To add on, from what i have been told make sure to get composite toe and not steel toe. Many Fire/EMS stores use steel toed boots.
