    Hey all,

    I have a pair of Bates Delta 9 boots that are broken in and very comfortable. I will be attending Air Assault School at Fort Benning in two weeks and I want to make sure that using those boots won't present an issue during the equipment layout. The packing list says that any boot that meets AR 670-1 requirements will be allowed, but the requirements are pretty vague and I can't find any guidance online as to whether the Delta 9's are considered "compliant." Specifically, I am not sure if they are cowhide leather or if anyone would be able to notice if they weren't. I've worn them at Ranger Challenge and at my school without any issues. Thoughts?

    As long as they're desert tan color, with a swede or synthetic leather outsole and tan laces with at least 12" of boot height, you should be okay. Most major manufacturers comply with 670-1 because they wouldn't sell otherwise.

    I wouldn't be worried about it, Bates makes good boots and I have yet to see a pair that don't comply with regulations.
