    I understand this topic has been covered before, but I was unable to find the information I need on other threads I found. USMA authorizes a pair of black leather oxfords for $45.39. However, all I can find online are the durashocks for $140+. Does anyone know of where I can purchase the cheaper pair or a phone number to the cadet store?

    Additionally, could anyone recommend dishing out the $100 more for the durashocks?

    Thanks for the input:thumb:

    Cadet store: 845-446-1019, ask for Pinky
    There was some trial & error in size for my DS because we aren't close to a base to try on shoes.

    FB pages

    Have you joined the WP class of 2018 parents FB page or the WP Moms (or Dads) page? There is a lot of useful information on both of these pages, you can search with the magnifying glass icon at the top of each page, and the pages are run by Debra Dalton, the official WP parents liaison. You can ask to join and one of the administrators will verify your CC's info before adding you.

    FYI ca2midwestmom.....the West Point Moms and West Point Dads are not official West Point Facebook pages. They were started by West Point moms and dads and the members include current and grad parents. Debra Dalton the West Point liaison is a member of the Moms page.

    What did you find out in your trial and error (do they run small/large)? Tried that number and another i found with no luck.

    Try 845-938-2121
    I ordered 14E, just as his foot measured and like another pair of dress shoes he has (running shoes are a 15E). The 14E was too wide -- his heel kept coming out of the shoe. Sent them back and got a 14D, which fit. Bad thing is you have to pay for shipping both ways. So the $45 shoes from WP ended up costing ~$85 because of shipping. Do you have a base close by he can try on a pair?

    That number appears to work, but I will have to wait till tomorrow as the cadet store seems to be closed. Thanks! There are no nearby bases where I can go to try them on. Hope it works out the first time!
