    Stocks are already being run down. Not all the recruits at my callsign got the standard Haix operational boots due to shortages and got the off the shelf version instead.Same with the Magnums.

    What's the craic with the scale of issue? One or two pairs? Currently wearing mine overseas and I can't see how you could possibly keep a pair parade ready, even with only light barracks use.

    From what I have been told (and this might be subject to change) it is one pair.
    Thats right.One pair of boots to replace two.
    To do you for everything.

    Who thought that was a good idea????

    Maybe they took "single" boot concept too literally? I mean, should you be lucky you even got a matching pair?
