I have been accepted to the Citadel for the Class of 2016. While talking to many alumni and through doing research by myself I found out that I should buy my boots and shoes early in the summer so I can break them in. That way I will have less of a chance of getting blisters during Hell Week. However, the Citadel has yet to issue a packing list and I have a few questions. If anyone could I answer the following question I would greatly appreciate it, especially if you went to the Citadel. Q1: What type of boots should I buy and where could I buy them? Q2: What type of dress shoes should I buy and where should I buy them? Q3: When does the packing list for the Citadel usually get sent to the incoming cadets? Also, I am from Missouri so if you could list a online site to buy the boots or shoes that would be great.
