Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.


Dress Shoes must be plain black leather or patent leather military style. The shoes will have a non- contrasting sole and normal standard heel. Rubber soles are recommended due to the climate in Vermont. Shoes are not allowed to have a toe cap or stitching across the toe and may not be slip-on in style. Our recommended dress shoe is the Bates Low Quarter Oxford.


Boots must be a tan military-style combat boots, 8” Field Boot. No side zippers, No Air Force Sage boots, No Marine Corps Olive boots allowed.

There are three style boots that we, at the Uniform Store, recommend for incoming rooks based on experience and testing. With our experience we feel that a temperate (gortex) or a summer boot are the best for the initial months and the Rook should look into winter boots after some time in the colder weather.
