Hey everyone....I'm a prior and should be heading to OCS before the end of the year (waiting on FINSEL). I plan on just purchasing all new items during the uniform/item issue while at OCS. The only exception (aside from the required items to bring) is that I want to buy a new pair of black boots to break in between now and when I ship out. I want to make sure that I show up with something that will be approved. I've attached a picture from my uniform shop showing the boots they carry. The 360 ST seems like the standard issue. 490 ST is far more comfortable but still says it's ashore and shipboard approved. I assume that the 800 ST may not be authorized. I plan to buy the 490 ST if someone on here had insight on whether these would be ok. Breaking in new boots can be one of the worst experiences especially if it includes a strenous PT regimen. Any ideas on how strict they are at OTC with bringing boots? Thanks guys.
