The results are in, and the final decision has been made concerning a prototype Airman Battle Uniform stain-resistant boot for wear in industrial environments.

The wear test choice is a sage green, full-grain leather boot, which incorporates a rubber toe and heal cap that resists staining and increases durability. As an interim solution until a stain-resistant boot is produced, a policy has been issued allowing commanders to authorize wear of black boots in specific industrial work areas.

Once a stain-resistant boot is approved for production, the black boot wear policy will be phased out and replaced by the new sage green stain-resistant boot for industrial use only. More information will be available on the approval and production of a new stain-resistant boot by early summer 2010.
