    In the 2nd BFE, there is a thing about sizing for boots, and they recomended getting sized by a place that specializes in workboots. What brand boots do they issues, and do they run bigger or smaller than running shoes? I'm a female btw, so I don't know if that makes a differance. Thanks y'all!

    They will issue you WELLCOs here, but people also use Danner and Bellville. They just need the sizing to have a general idea of how many of what size to buy because on inprocessing day you try them on to find the right size, so I wouldnt worry too much about getting it perfect because you can just get the right thing when you are here. But to answer your other question, they fit about the same as tennis shoes.

    Heck yeah! I'm driving my folks crazy with my own excitement. I've never been a huge talker, but they're almost to the point of telling me to shut up talking about it haha. Good luck wherever you decide to go! I have friends that are going to both of those.
