Boot Lacing

Hello all,

Does the Army have any regulations on boot lacing? I've looked through AR 670-1, and I've seen nothing about it at all. Does that mean that one can lace these using whatever method one sees fit(ladder, criss-cross, spider, etc.)? What about lace colors?

Many thanks,
DWRZ

Uhm...I've always laced my boots right over left. That's just me. It all depends on what your Commander says about it. I've never really had to deal with this issue with anyone. I'm pretty sure that the lace colors have to match the color of the boots you're wearing. You can't walk around with green or yellow laces or black laces with desert boots. That's just common sense right there.

the only thing I ever remember reading said boots will be laced from bottom to top. I dont think it gave a specific pattern. some wear them left over right, some right over left, some dont lace all the way to the top, some skip 1 or 2 holes. If you do find something, let us know!

AR 670-1 27-3 c. (1)
quote:
The boots are laced diagonally with black laces, with the excess lace tucked into the top of the boot under the bloused trousers or slacks, or wrapped around the top of the boot. Metal cleats and side tabs are not authorized for wear except by honor guards and ceremonial units in the performance of ceremonial duties. When metal cleats and side tabs are authorized for wear, commanders will furnish them to soldiers at no cost. Sewn-in or laced-in zipper inserts are not authorized.

Here is what I have from an e-mail:
From: Stover, Steve MAJ OCPA
Subject: Army Combat Uniform (ACU) Ensamble (Unclassified)

5E. Boots. Army combat boots (hot weather and temperate weather), and optional boots.
5E1. Army combat boots made of tan rough side out cattlehide leather with a plain toe and tan rubber outsoles. The boots are laced diagonally with tan laces, with the excess lace tucked into the top of the boot under the bloused trousers, or wrapped around the top of the boot....
11. This message has been atuhorized by the Army G-1.
12. HQDA POC for the uniform wear policy is SGM Katrina Easley, katrina.easley@hqda.army.mil, DSN 426-5129, commercial (703) 696-5129
13. This message expires upon publication of the next AR 670-1 update.
I don't know if this will go into the new regulation, but the Big Red One goes by this pretty strictly, and it is board question material. I hope that helps.


Go Kinetic!

We have thousands of members.
Most of them at one time or another studied for a board.
Many of us (guilty) do this sort research for fun.

Welcome to the forums DWRZ. You can learn a lot here.

There are usually instructions when you get the boots... I remember back in basic (94), there was a chart showing how it was supposed to be laced. But I dunno remember!

Just out of curiosity, why are black boots greater than black laces? I just got done with an algebra final so I had to get that out.

He meant black boots go with black laces.

On the evening of the seventh day the Lord looked over His creation and saw that it was good. He said, Let there be a breed of great warriors to protect the people from evil. They shall ride beasts of iron and steel and speak with breaths of fire and destruction. They shall be feared by all that is evil. The people shall call these warriors who are masters of their beasts

My apologies. I would have put in an actual arrow, but I expected everyone to be as math illiterate as I am. But for you Algebra buffs:



Therefore:

Smittaayy = no math if he can help it

Schools out. No Homework for the rest of the week. Or ever.
