    Sorry for posting such a pointless question but I'm completely confused when it comes to finding the right size and color of the Belleville Khyber II TR550 Mountain Hybrid Boot. On the boot memo it says get Coyote color, but on the Amazon page they sell these boots in Coyote Brown and Coyote. Which color is the correct one?

    Also, I wear size 9.5 running shoes and size 10 Vans. When measuring with a Brannock Device my feet are in between 9.5 and 10. Everthing on the internet suggests I order 1 or 1/2 a size down but I'm not sure which to do and can't physically try these shoes on at any point due to where I live. For reference I also plan on ordering some semi-thick Fox River boot socks. If anyone with experience with the TR550s or Belleville boots in general could send their advice my way I would be very grateful.

    Order from a place that allows you to return the pairs that don't fit properly since you really should try on a few pairs. A few companies do allow returns with no problem.

    If you or your parents are on FB, you can ask this question there also. There is a lot of discussion about the boots there.

    Thank you for the suggestions. Which FB pages did you have in mind? The WP Parents page?

    There are a few - West Point Class of 2020 (parents page) , West Point Moms , West Point Dads (I'm assuming they have discussed boots) and the class of 2020 FB page for the cadets.

    I bought the boots off the Belleville website. It's a little more expensive but it was very easy to return the pair I didn't want (I bought two pairs) and I think the extra cost is worth not having the hassle of the provider maybe not being able to take back the boot. The color is coyote brown. If you order them of Amazon the boot listed under coyote is NOT CORRECT. That is the desert tan boot that we are not authorized to wear with OCPs, they go with ACUs. They're a little lighter than coyote brown. If you buy them off the Belleville website it will clearly say coyote brown so you shouldn't have a problem. Hope I helped! Good luck!

    Raxbar needs 10+ posts in order to be able to receive or send PMs. (Private conversations )

    Just to be clear by confusing you, the actual name for the new uniform is ACU as well. You will see them referred to as OCP ACU, as it's replacing the UCP ACU. The other issue is that the old term OCP actual meant OEF Camo Pattern, whereas it now means Operational Camo Pattern.

    If you're confused, welcome to the Army.
