I believe as previously mentioned that everyone has different footwear needs and an allowance would serve members well...as well as save many hours attending the MIR
This, I believe, is part of the problem.
For office/clerical/administrative positions, the issued boots are just fine. We need to realise that with good insoles, the Mk IIIs are sufficient for those who are not required to walk long distances with weight. All too often I find, sore footsies are remedied with a visit to the MIR when proper fit and break-in would have solved the problem in the first place.
I wear my Mk IIIs in Garrison, and like a great many others, switch to my expensive civvie boots in the field. Boots are tools, and you use different tools for different purposes.
