The U.S. Navy will transition from the Navy Working Uniform (NWU) Type I to the NWU Type III as the service's primary shore working uniform beginning Oct. 1, 2016. Over the next three years, Sailors may wear either the NWU Type I or III, but effective Oct. 1, 2019, all Sailors will be expected to wear the NWU Type III. Black boots will be the standard boot worn in the United States and its territories. However, expeditionary forces in the United States or any forward deployed forces may wear the desert tan or coyote brown boots. The enlisted clothing replacement allowance will be adjusted to cover costs of these uniform changes and requirements. For more information, see this KitUp article.
