    Does anyone know the manufacturer and the style number of the boots? I won't be able to go to the Air Force Academy before In Processing and I would like to purchase a pair somehow.

    I think they are Belleville 750s.

    Belleville 650
    (there is no 750, according to their site)

    I really wouldn't worry about getting boots. The whole new uniform thing is messing everything up for 2012 at USAFA and they aren't even sure what they are going to do about boots (you are getting one new pair - but they don't know what your getting for the second pair.) Also, the new boots are far more comfortable than the old ones, and most people were fine with just getting the old ones at Inprocessing day.

    When I wore the Belleville 650, it felt like it was broken in for the most part. In other words, it is very easy on the feet.
