The Army Physical Fitness Uniform (APFU), which was introduced in 2013, is modular, with different sections that can be merged or removed depending on physical training conditions. The uniform consists of a track jacket, short- and long-sleeve T-shirts, track pants, and flexible running trunks, all of which are stylized in black and gold. On October 1, 2014, the uniform was released. Soldiers are merely required to acquire commercial running shoes because no standard shoe style is established. However, “toe shoes” (such as the Vibram FiveFingers running shoe) and shoes with profane or vulgar emblems are prohibited.
